If you would like to have a word, a phrase or even a whole sentence translated, this is the right place for your request. Since this is a multilingual dictionary in English, please ask your questions in English and specify from which language your word/phrase is and into which language(s) you would like to have it translated. It would be appreciated if those people providing translations added them to the entry of the requested word. Also see Wiktionary:Requested entries to request an entry.

For fast translations, you might consider using Google Translate or Bing Translator. Both sites make imperfect translations in a wide range of languages; if you are looking for something for a tattoo, it is highly recommended that you get a translation from a real person.

When adding an entry, please list in the title the source language and the destination language for which you would like a translation (ex. English to Spanish).

Requests without destination language may be subject to deletion without warning.

Translate this sentence in English[edit]

Ha hm tumko Pyar karte hai aur sach me karte hai humko nahi pata Tum kya sochte ho mere baare me aur tumne us din humse Jo bhi kaha humko pata hai wo ek mazak tha shayad tumne pata nahi kya soch kar bola humse aisa lekin hum tumhare saath koi flirt nahi kar rahe aur na hi tumse kuch expect karte hai bas humko laga ki tumko bol dena chahiye isliye bol dia tumko Jo sochne samjhna hai socho

Lots of bad spelling, no punctuation, makes it very hard to understand. This is the best I can do with it:
Yes, we love you and we do not know what you really think about me and you told us the other day that was a joke, maybe you know she had no idea what we do but us thinking flirt uttered, nor do you expect is just our thought should speak to you so you think is to understand the lyrics. —Stephen (Talk) 07:32, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

pls translate to china[edit]

You must mean "Chinese", not "china". Here's my try:

亲爱的时候拿来需要学费 [MSC, simp.]
Qīn'àide, nǐ lái de shíhou, nálái hěn duō qián. Wǒ xūyào hěn duō qián fù xuéfèi. Wǒ ài nǐ. [Pinyin]

Maybe "my love" is Wiktionary and they want us to transfer plenty of money to China? ;) --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 13:11, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Translation requests are so weird. Anyway, here is my version:

親愛的需要很多時候 [MSC, trad.]
亲爱的需要很多时候 [MSC, simp.]
Qīn'àide, wǒ xūyào hěnduō qián, nǐ lái de shíhòu dài xiē qián lái. Ài nǐ. [Pinyin]
My love, I need plenty of money. Please bring some money when you come. Love you.

I'm not sure what fees are meant in the question, so I removed it as it made the sentence sound unnatural. Wyang (talk) 23:56, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

English to Latin[edit]

Could anyone please translate the following for me (in quotation marks below? I am pretty sure google translate is not up to scratch and really need to get this right. Any help would be much appreciated.

'Deal with your demons, before they deal with you.'

Thank you all in advance.

  2. Vince daemones antequam vincant. (two versions...wait to see if someone can improve) —Stephen (Talk) 13:22, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
The verb ūtor is frequently used to mean deal with both in terms of manage and have dealings with. So I might also propose:
Utere daemonibus antquam te utantur.
Though I think both of Stephen's would work nicely. —JohnC5 19:30, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you so much for your help. I have had a look on google translate (again, I know this is not the best thing to do) but with your sentences I have managed to create the below:

Vinco daemones antequam agant te vincant

Does this make sense or am I way off? Thanks again, David

That means "I conquer demons before they act they conquer you." So no. —Stephen (Talk) 08:36, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Please translate from drunk to sober[edit]

Last night I hung out with a Beatles tribute band. I don't know why either. Today I came down and found a note I had written myself, which says "L8 - just 8dlx + Fiz...". I have no idea what this means, although I think it starts with "late". Please translate to sober English. Equinox 10:09, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

My guess would be ‘late—just eight downloads and [a] fizzy drink,’ but that’s only a guess. It’s possible that ‘fiz’ is a very colloquial way of writing ‘physics,’ or something else starting with phys‐. --Romanophile (talk) 09:49, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

English to Croatian[edit]

heroin

I'm not that familiar with Croatian. Croatian Wikipedia has an article on "heroin" (without diacritics), but the Serbo-Croatian entry heroin has the Roman listing with diacritics (heròīn). --WikiWinters (talk) 18:56, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

heroin is correct. Serbo-Croatian has a pitch accent, which is used in speech but not indicated in writing. The entries here use a system of diacritics (Slavicist system) to indicate the pitch accent, but in normal text the diacritics are not used. In the case of heroin, ò = short vowel with rising tone; ī = nontonic long vowel. —Stephen (Talk) 09:00, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Is this the same for Latin entries? I've noticed that they contain diacritics as well, but are they normally used in writing? --WikiWinters (talk) 21:00, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
The breve is used only in Latin dictionaries. The macron was not used in Classical times, but is sometimes written in modern Latin editions.
A number of languages use special marks or letters in dictionaries that are not used in normal text. Italian dictionaries use an accent to show the word stress, and the letter ʒ to indicate a /zh/ sound, but in normal Italian text only a final accented syllable may be marked, and no special letters are used. —Stephen (Talk) 04:26, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

English to Latin translation request[edit]

Hello I would like the following translated into Latin. It is a very meaningful thought to my life and feel it deserves some eloquence. I do not believe a persons professional should always follow what one loves. Quite often when a person tries to make a living around something the love the result is resentment. I do not want to lose my passion for those things I love. The other side is that success is more likely when a person pursues a professional path the benefits from their strengths.

Do what you do well. Enjoy what you love.

Thank you, Paul Ziemer

Fac quod bene facis. Fruere quod amās. (addressing one person)
Facite quod bene facitis. Fruiminī quod amātis. (addressing multiple people)

No, it is borrowed from English, and someone is trying to guess how to spell it. —Stephen (Talk) 10:45, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
How do you say "sexy" in English? --WikiWinters (talk) 21:06, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
/ˈsɛksi/ ... but Italian does not use the letter x like that. The Italian word for sexual is sessuale. The Italian word for sexy is attraente, but if they borrow from English, it is supposed to be spell sexy. —Stephen (Talk) 08:18, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
I was puzzled by your response; I thought you were being a wise guy at first, but then I realized I had said "English" instead of "Italian." Haha, that's embarrassing... So, the standard translation for "sexy" is attraente, but word-for-word is sexy? I'm curious because I wonder what a translator would do if it came up in movie dialogue, perhaps in the form of "She's sexy." --WikiWinters (talk) 14:43, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
The Italians use the adjective sexy, they also use sexy-shop (I'll add it). SemperBlotto (talk) 14:48, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

One possibility is 君乐 (Lǐ Jūnlè). There are lots of other possibilities. For example, just thinking of Li, the surname Li might be any of these: (Lǐ), (Lǐ), (Lí), (Lì), (Lì), (Lì), (Lì), (Lì). —Stephen (Talk) 07:26, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
So, is (Lǐ Jūnlè) the most probable? --WikiWinters (talk) 18:51, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Japanese to English[edit]

http://i.imgur.com/GvpEqJU.jpg --WikiWinters (talk) 22:40, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

  • This is all in Chinese characters, leading me to think it's not Japanese.
The writing is quite stylized, and it is difficult to tell what the characters are intended to be.
  • The topmost character might be (the Japanese simplified version of “to start; to become”), maybe (zodiac symbol). The radical looks like , but Index:Chinese_radical/癶 doesn't show anything that quite fits. Another option would be a radical of with on the bottom (maybe a surname?), but Index:Chinese_radical/入 also has nothing that fits this. It could be a broken-down version of (“to eat”).
  • The second one is probably (“chisel”).
  • The third one escapes me.
  • The fourth one is also hard to identify. The likeliest option would be a broken-down version of 寿 (“long life, longevity”).
  • The last one is clearest, and it looks like (“to go”).

  • Looks like another contributor on the linked site guessed right, for characters 3, 4, and 5: 堺 孝行, or Sakai Takayuki. The ‎(sakai) character in the image is a bit warped, but just about recognizable -- if you know what you're looking at. The ‎(taka) character is a real mess in the image, with stray marks on the knife that look like character strokes.

I think it would be "an icon of the Novgorod recension". I’m not sure of this, because I don’t know much about Slavic icons or the language used to describe them. Recension is rarely used in English, and most people would not understand it. It might be better to say "an icon of the Novgorod variant" or "an icon (Novgorod recension)". —Stephen (Talk) 10:40, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
The term извод is rarely used in Russian as well in this sense, and like English "recension", most Russians won't understand this sense either. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 11:24, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Henry Thomas Riley (1912) translates it thus (I omit the stage directions he inserted): "To you, blooming one, I give this blooming wreath. You shall be our governess here." —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:16, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Japanese word "engu"?[edit]

I was watching GameCenter CX and somebody said engu instead of ending (meaning the final winning message of a video game). The audience seemed to find this very funny. Does engu mean something in Japanese? Equinox 02:16, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

I don’t know anything about video games, but there is the name エング (Engu, Eng). I think there are a couple of Anime characters with this name. —Stephen (Talk) 22:58, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

English to Afrikaans[edit]

Have a wonderful day and an even more beautiful life with me my gorgeous princess. You are the strongest part of me and I will never change that my source of happiness!

what does this sentence mean[edit]

I trust you because you are the epitome of everything that I admire in a man.
It means: I trust you because you are the embodiment of everything that I admire in a man. Or: I trust you because you represent everything that I want in a man. —Stephen (Talk) 06:02, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

English to Latin[edit]

Where You go, I'll go
Where You stay, I'll stay
When You move, I'll move
I will follow you
Ubi is, eo
Ubi stas, sto
Quando moves, moveo
Sequar te.
(Get it checked before you get it tattooed anywhere. --Catsidhe (verba, facta) 00:16, 9 August 2015 (UTC))
I think the first line should be "Quo is, eo" ("to what place you go") or "Qua is, eo" ("through what place you go"). "Ubi" means "in what place". 193.86.19.35 08:02, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

French translation[edit]

I have already given them to you

Je vous les ai déjà donnés.
Je te les ai déjà donnés. (if you are friendly with this person) —Stephen (Talk) 08:43, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Not exactly. In French, the past participle agrees with the direct object ("les" in this sentence) when this one occurs before the past participle. In this sentence it will be always in the plural "donnés" (masculine) or "données" (feminine) since "les" can be either masculine or feminine. We would also have:
Je te/vous les ai déjà donnés. ("les" being masculine plural)
Je te/vous les ai déjà données. ("les" being feminine plural)
Furthermore, "tu" refers to only one person you are quite familiar with, whereas "vous" can refer to several people and also to only one person you are not familiar with and/or you respectfully speak to. Such distinction has been lost in English (see thou). 86.69.154.164 07:38, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Stephen wasn't wrong he just assumed the masculine case as it's what you do when no specific noun is actually given. Renard Migrant (talk) 18:59, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

Video Game Terms (English to Swedish)[edit]

I need the following words translated:

  • Matchmaking Noun "The act or process of locating suitable players to take part in a multiplayer game session."
  • Replaying Verb "Watching a replay/demo of a previously completed match/game."
  • Casual Gamemode Noun "A gamemode that is not serious in the sense that it does not count towards a players rank, does not penalise players for leaving, and allows players to be more relaxed whilst playing."

Cheers --Markkozlov (talk) 23:36, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Swedish is easy, but I don’t know much about video games. This is my best guess:
  • matchdanande
  • uppspelning
  • avslappnade spelläge —Stephen (Talk) 11:35, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the help. I was discussing with a native Swede earlier and he couldn't think of good words in Swedish for these. I was looking for the verb, so I believe it'd be spelar upp. Also, avslappnade is wrong I think because it's conjugated for a definite noun even though I want spelläge to be indefinite. I think it should be avslappnat spelläge. The Swede told me avslappnat instead of avslappnad. Apparently the entry for läge in Wiktionary may be incorrect in saying that it is of the common gender. I was also told that matchdanade was wrong. --Markkozlov (talk) 20:17, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

1. Also possible: "What is it all about?" "What is the topic?" "What are you guys talking about?"
2. "Talking about two/three things."
3. "It's not even that." "That's not even what the problem is."
Translations would really depend on the context. Hope this helps. Yurivict (talk) 18:37, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Translating from English to French using masculine noun[edit]

Please can someone give an accurate translation from English to French (in the masculine noun) "I hope you have a lovely evening with your Mother and Sarah."

Thank you

I think you mean with a male subject rather than a masculine noun (unless you want a masculine noun for 'evening' and 'mother', and I don't think it's that you want) Anyway « J'espère que vous passerez une bonne soirée avec votre mère et Sarah » or « J'espère que tu passeras une bonne soirée avec ta mère et Sarah » (tu form). How's that? Renard Migrant (talk) 18:56, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

Depending how close you are to this person,
Not close: « J'espère que vous passerez une bonne soirée avec votre mère et Sarah »
