How am I doing? » answer
by Nona-Rona-Lisa (US), 2017-08-21, 13:09  Spam?  
I'm trying to write "i hate to run but i would love to swim with you" so far i have "Odi curere sed amabo natare cum te."
by khanzat, 2017-08-22, 07:48  Spam?  80.49.67....
It's "currere", not "curere". Your sentence is right, although "amabo" means "I'll love". For "I'd love" is "amem" (Subjunctive).

Currere odi sed natare cum te amem.
Engraved sword wedding gift » answer
by Jenh, 2017-08-17, 21:38  Spam?  192.207.21...
I want to engrave
"My hero, my protector, my love"
On a sword for my future husband as a wedding gift. I just want to make sure google translate doesn't mess me up. Thank you.
by khanzat, 2017-08-18, 16:53  Spam?  80.49.67....
"Heros, protector, amator meus"

Meus is "my", you can write it after each noun (heros meus, etc.) if you like it. But it isn't necessary in Latin.

Because it's for an engraving, perhaps it would be cool to write as they would have done it in Roman times:


(Only capital letters, no spaces, only a point · and v and u are the same letter).

Enjoy your wedding!
by Jenh, yesterday, 18:46  Spam?  192.207.21...
Thanks for the help. I think I will use that. I am also going to put his last name and our wedding date. Do you have a recommendation for how to write 9/23/17 or September 23, 2017?
by khanzat, yesterday, 19:25  Spam?  80.49.67....
In New Latin it would be:

Septembris, 23, a.2017
23 Sep. 2017

In the Classical Roman calendar it was:

a.d.IX kal. Oct. MMXVII

...which is too complicated.

Sep. 23, 2017 looks nice.

I'm trying to say "Don't cry because it ended, smile because it happened" in latin. I tried by myself and came up with "Non lacrima quod terminat subride quod contigit"
by khanzat, 2017-08-02, 14:56  Spam?  80.49.67....
You did well, although your starting words aren't an imperative "Don't..." but something like "No teardrop...".

My version: "Ne ploraveris quod finivit, subride quod evenit".

isti, cum eos testibus arripueris, et mente et animo mox capientur

Those you seize by the testicles have immediately their minds and souls caught.

Or more natural: You have the mind and the soul of those you seize by their testicles.

I think I remember reading this in Little Gods by Terry Pratchett.

Mistake in the answer key? » answer
by BrennaB (UN), 2017-07-02, 20:25  Spam?  
Can't tell if this is an errata or I'm just misunderstanding something grammatically. The translation given for the English phrase "[given] four rewards to this man" is "quattuor praemia viro huic."

Why is "praemia" in the nominative singular instead of accusative plural?
by khanzat, 2017-07-03, 12:36  Spam?  80.49.67....
Praemia is in the accusative plural. It's a neuter noun of the second declension (praemium).

I don't think you should be translating before knowing by heart the 5 declensions.
by BrennaB (UN), 2017-07-03, 22:57  Spam?  
Thank you; I was working on this late at night and had forgotten that praemia was a neuter noun and not feminine. Whoops!

The textbook I'm working through has translation exercises in each chapter, so I'm not sure how I could avoid those. It only recently introduced fourth and fifth declension nouns.
Struggling with use of "apud" » answer
by BrennaB (UN), Last modified: 2017-07-02, 14:30  Spam?  
I'm working through Latin Alive! Book 2 from Classical Anemic Press, and they have a quotation to translate that uses "apud" but in no discernible manner.

"Plus apud me vera ratio valebat quam vulgi opinio."
True reason was more strong/effective in me than the opinion of the crowd.

If "apud" means near or among, what purpose does it play in this sentence?


**Also, the publisher is Classical ACADEMIC Press, not Anemic. Darn you, autocorrect...
by khanzat, 2017-07-02, 14:13  Spam?  80.49.67....
Good question. Apud also means "in the lands/ propierties/domain of". "Apud Persas" = "in the lands of the Persians". In your example "apud me" = in my domain" = in me.

Translation help, original passage i'm not sure if it comes out to what i want. » answer
by Nona-Rona-Lisa (US), Last modified: 2017-07-01, 18:25  Spam?  
"Finivi osculans te et aspexi.
Conatus es caecus parare furenter plus.
Non, maximum rem umquam vidi.
Puella somnii mei intermoriens me."

I wish for it to translate to-> "I stopped kissing you and looked at you. You were blindly trying to get more frantically. No, greatest thing I ever saw. The girl of my dreams swooning for me."
by khanzat, 2017-07-01, 19:37  Spam?  80.49.67....
Wow, this must be Google Translate because the second sentence went from cute to very offensive. And it translated "swooning" to "intermoriens" which means dying, decaying, getting rotten...

A human version:

Te osculandi desii et aspexi
Inopinate te plus gaudere tentabas
Nihil maius videram
Puella somnii a me efferebatur.
by Nona-Rona-Lisa (US), 2017-07-01, 22:29  Spam?  
No it wasn't google translate, it was my attempt but I was looking in my dictionary for a word for swoon and i found intermoriens loll thanks
With highest skill » answer
by Daniela09, 2017-06-29, 19:57  Spam?  83.163.98...
I am looking for a phrase that is similar to 'summa cum laude', but instead of with highest praise meaning something like 'with highest skill'. Is 'summa cum arte' poor Latin?
by khanzat, 2017-06-29, 20:40  Spam?  80.49.67....
You can use it, although it is a bit of bogus Latin.

But "Summa cum laude" means literally "the highest with praising". Translating it as "with highest praise" is already a "weird" (but well stablished) translation..

If you are interested, the right sentence order would be "cum summa arte".
by Daniela09, 2017-06-29, 21:03  Spam?  83.163.98...
Thank you for your quick answer, khanzat
Might Makes Right » answer
by PhotoCosmos (UN), 2017-06-14, 00:45  Spam?  
Hello I am writing an essay and would like to know how this phrase "Might Makes Right" would translate to Latin. Thank you
by khanzat, 2017-06-14, 14:20  Spam?  80.49.67....

In Roman Law, this was said "Quod princeps placuit legis habet vigorem" (Digest 1.4.1), "What pleases the ruler has the strength of law"

But if you want a literal translation "Potestas ius est". But it has not the word-play of right=opposite of wrong and right=law.
Centipedes are God's creatures » answer

I'm writing a chant lyric, and was wondering what would be the best way to say the above phrase. In other words, what I'm trying to say is that centipedes were created by God, they belong to God.  Any pronunciation tips would be appreciated as well. Thank you! Love this site!
by Plish, 2017-06-13, 17:58  Spam?  99.63.49...
The phrase, if it isn't clear, is "centipedes are God's creatures"

testantur hae literae gradum baccalaureatus in medicina veterinaria honoro cursu confecto in universitate hiberniae nationali apud dublin, quae universitas particeps unversitatis hiberniae nationalis rite constituta est ad "steven dillon" delatum esse

Thank you
by khanzat, 2017-06-04, 09:18  Spam?  80.49.67....
Latin word order is a bit special, so I'm going to arrange it a little for an easier reading:

National University of Ireland
This document attest that the grade of Bachelor in Veterinary Medicine has been given to Steven Dillon, who completed the honor course in the National University of Ireland in Dublin, a university which is part of the National Univerity of Ireland.

(A bit repetitive, isn't it?)

Fear bringer translation in latin » answer
by Writer anon, 2017-05-06, 07:36  Spam?  218.215.33....
Hi, could any Latin speakers please tell me a short way to say 'fear bringer' in Latin ? It doesn't have to be a strict translation. Anything that pretty much describes someone who brings fear. It's for a story I'm writing. I need a name for a supernatural creature who brings fear.
Thank you !
by khanzat, 2017-05-06, 16:45  Spam?  92.186.68....
Metusfer means "bringer of fear" (same construction as Lucifer "Lightbringer"). Metuumfer means "bringer of all fears" if it's better. Or Nefariifer "bringer of injustices".

Formido means "fear" and it looks like a name. Or Horrifidus, "Dreadful".

The horses of Mars' chariot were called in Greek Deimos and Phobos (Dread and Fear). Deimos is in my opinion, a very cool name.
