"(God) bless this house" in Arabic, Persian, and/or Urdu

As in, a set phrase you might see on a plaque hung over the front door

Nothing si true, everything si permitted

I'm trying to get a tattoo in Hebrew that reads

Nothing is true, everything is permitted.

Any help would be appreciated

-Why in Hebrew? It's an Arabic expression, and a Muslim one at that. The literal (and slightly incorrect) translation is above anyway.

Translation into Hawaiian

Please translate "Oh, We Bless You Lord" into Hawaiian. Thanks

"Hoʻomaikaʻi mākou iā ʻoe, ʻo Ke Akua". I've used "Ke Akua", which means "God", instead of "Lord". You could substitute Ke Akua with Iehova for Jehovah or Iesū for Jesus if you wanted. Kal (talk) 04:41, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

strength comes from family

English to Latin

I need a translation for 'Love surviving Death' in Latin. I've searched everywhere I can, but I can't seem to find a word specifically for 'surviving.' Is there a word for 'survive' that means the same?

You would use the word supero (meaning transcend). —Stephen 20:20, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

That is a good one, i believe you could also use Supervivit, to survive, outlive. -Alexandra from Norway

english to french translation

you are my adoration and I want to spend the rest of my life with you —This comment was unsigned.

Je t'adore et je veux passer le reste de ma vie avec toi. (Note: je t'adore is I adore you. I wrote it this way because adoration is the feeling of love, not the person loved.) Equinox 18:19, 7 November 2008 (UTC)


Translation

Translation of "A Journey to light" in Hindi

Advanced Spanish: Mecano song "stereosexual"

Here's a fun one to try to make heads or tails of.[1] I think that several of the words here which I've linked could use extra explanation, and some of the phrases just bugger my imagination. I've found a transcript of lyrics;[2] condensing the redundant portions: GURGLE SPOT!! YO homey G!!! WAZZAAAA?!?! Cuando me desperté,
y vi otro tío acostado
de espaldas a mi lado me dije "pavo éste quién es", (explain that phrase?) (ANSWER: "who is this dude?")

luego ya razoné,
la culpa es del alcohol,
debí mezclar ayer hasta volverme maricón. (They're all simple words, but the grammar loses me! Also, should suffixed pronouns be indexed for "volver"?) (...What do you mean by "indexed"? The grammar of which words do you question?)

Y que dirán de mí,
dirán que eres gay,
lo tendré que asumir, (I think this may be a somewhat broader usage)
no te apures rey, ("do not rush king?")
me hacen para tal para cual,
verás como sí, Stereosexual,

con mi novia no sé,
creo que se lo diré,
de forma gradual para que no le sienta mal

pero por el squash,
es mejor no volver,
no sea que un día en las duchas* no me pueda contener**. (*noun?) (**some other
meaning?) (yes, noun. "I couldn’t contain myself")

por otro lao, (presumably = lado)
por el lao de atrás,
no debe estar tan mal,
pero si es normal,
sí es tanto personal,
pruébalo y verás,
Stereosexual,

Cuando me había hecho a la idea
el varón se despertó,
y resultó ser una tía ("the man woke up and resulted to be a woman"; perhaps add "turn out" as a definition?) ("it turned out to be a prostitute")
con el pelo a lo Grace Jones
aunque ya se fotocopie
por delante y por detrás
a mi me sale más a cuenta
por un lado nada más.
