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.

Latin to English[edit]

Do hanc tibi florentem florenti: tu
hic eris dictatrix nobis. --Romanophile (talk) 22:48, 6 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)

Quem vocet divum populus ruentis imperi rebus? --Romanophile (talk) 15:56, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

I googled Ode 1.2 for a translation, but they were all rather lacking, or even outright inaccurate. That said, I found it impossible to express elegantly and poetically, but here is my rendering: "What god might the people call upon for matters of authority as it tumbles down?" —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 16:36, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
@Metaknowledge L&S's entry for imperium list the meaning of imperi as empire in this quote. So maybe “What god may the people invoke for the benefit of a collapsing empire.” John Conington translates it as “What god shall Rome invoke to stay / Her fall?” which is a little far afield for my taste. —JohnC5 17:30, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
@JohnC5: I always interpreted this ode to refer to the time before Augustus, when the term "empire" would be inaccurate from a modern perspective; from the propagandist's view, Augustus restored the authority of Rome in the known world. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 20:27, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
@Metaknowledge How about “What god may the people invoke for the benefit of a collapsing state.” then?
@Metaknowledge Derp, redo. —JohnC5 20:33, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
@JohnC5 That would be good, I think. I like using "benefit", and my only problem left with your rendering is that ruō is more akin to rushing downward rather than falling apart, which "collapsing" would suggest. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 20:56, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
@Metaknowledge “What god may the people invoke for the benefit of a state tumbling to ruin.”
This is also one of those wonderful examples where res has some nondescript positive and/or legal meaning. —JohnC5 21:24, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
@JohnC5 Nice. And yes, I couldn't suss it out, so I rather cowardly avoided the problem of translating res, but I reckon you're right about that. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 00:36, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
@Metaknowledge The one alternative I might suggest would be “…in the matters of a state tumbling to ruin.” It really is a matter of valence, for which res has always been a difficult subject as it can be either very out-and-out positive (wealth, fortune) or very cut-and-dry legal (issue, suit). Up to Romanophile, I suppose. —JohnC5 01:53, 29 September 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)
  • There's also the noun 煙具 ‎(engu), which refers to devices used for smoking, such as a pipe. Dunno if that might be relevant to the context of GameCenter CX. ‑‑ Eiríkr Útlendi │Tala við mig 23:48, 21 September 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!

Het jy ’n wonderlike dag en ’n nog mooier lewe saam met my, my pragtige prinses. Jy is die sterkste deel van my, en ek sal nooit verander nie. Jy is my bron van geluk! —Stephen (Talk) 05:59, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

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". 08:02, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

vandalism --Romanophile (talk) 18:29, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

There is probably a better term for this, but it eludes me. This is all I could think of:
lascīvus interitus. —Stephen (Talk) 16:11, 1 September 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). 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)

  • Но дело даже не в этом. (This is in any circumstances.)
Please check my translations. --KoreanQuoter (talk) 04:19, 31 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)

  • Dutch: Wie de waarheid vertelt, heeft veel vijanden.
  • French: Qui est trop franc n'a pas d'amis.
  • French: Un homme trop franc n'a pas d'amis.
    • Something like « qui dit la vérité n'a pas d'amis ». It's pretty open to interpretation, unless a set phrase already exists. Renard Migrant (talk) 16:53, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
  • German: Wer die Wahrheit sagt, braucht ein schnelles Pferd.

Hallo, Wula, ich kann es nicht warten, um dich im April wiederzusehen, so Gott will! —Stephen (Talk) 04:33, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
The translation of Stephen is not correct in 2 ways: 1. He used the wrong verb for "wait" in this context and 2. the construction with "um" is grammatically wrong. As a native speaker I would rather say: "Hallo Wula, ich kann es kaum erwarten dich im April wiederzusehen, so Gott will!" — Best wishes, Caligari ƆɐƀïиϠ 19:58, 9 October 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 »

My memory’s unclear. I was viewing a Portuguese documentary, and the narrator mentioned bread, accompanied (get it?) by footage of somebody baking bread. Voilà: [1]. Maybe I was wondering what the ancient Iberians called their bread before the Romans arrived. (Presumably, the Iberians didn’t need a loanword word for it.) I’d also like to know if there’re any cognates in Latin, to give me ideas on more entries to fabricate. But as I’ve said, my memory is unclear. --Romanophile (talk) 06:02, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

To reload (a firearm). --Romanophile (talk) 17:22, 26 September 2015 (UTC)

I have no idea what people said, nor can I find it. I might try the literalist reonerō if I had to use something. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 17:54, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
I think reload would be redonerō. —Stephen (Talk) 06:40, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Is that even a word? I cannot find any evidence of redonerō existing, and I think making up a word would be considerably more difficult to understand than using a real word in an unexpected manner. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 07:05, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
As far as I recall, the prefix re-/red- is productive and can be affixed to many verbs, even if there was previously no need for it. I think it’s a good translation of reload, but using it in a sentence would probably need more words to make it understandable (e.g., re-charge a rifle of bullets, glāndibus sclopetum redonerō. —Stephen (Talk) 23:32, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Not as far as I know. There are a couple of synonyms, tribadă and gay. Homosexuality was very illegal under the communists, so gays and lesbians were careful to remain hidden. Twenty-five years ago, Russians, Romanians, and other people of the Soviet-bloc countries firmly believed that gay Russians, gay Romanians, etc., did not exist. They were certain that homosexuality was a thing of the West. After the fall of communism, homosexuality began to appear in these countries and people were astonished. The Russian Ministry of Healthcare decided to deal with their new homosexual problem by welcoming the introduction of AIDS and by turning a blind eye to its spread. It was widely believed that HIV would eradicate the gay people and then, with nothing else to feed on, it would simply vanish.

      • I checked several Latin dictionaries on "sustinere" vs. "sustentare," and "sustinere" seems closer to the Modern English definition of "sustain" (in the sense of environmental or social sustainability, i.e. closer to "maintain, preserve" than "uphold" or "endure"). "Sustainability" has recently become an important buzzword for environmental movements; my university even requires a Sustainability Studies course now for students. I would be surprised if it has not been used already in a Neo-Latin publication, perhaps by the Vatican. There seems to less literature in Ido though than Latin, due to the popularity of "unimproved" Esperanto. Nicole Sharp (talk) 17:32, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Translate into Italian - 2 song titles[edit]

Oddly enough, I know these in Latin, but not Italian.

"Dear God, Please Help Me" & "There is a Light that Never Goes Out"

And yes, I'm trying to choose between them for a tattoo

Grazie Mille.

If these are well-known songs, there might already be an accepted translation of them. I don’t know the songs and these are simply my own translations.

Gelukkige verjaarsdag! Ek is lief vir jou en ek wil dankie sê vir die feit dat jy altyd daar vir my is. Saam het ons deur die beste en die ergste, en ek sal altyd die herinneringe wat jy gemaak het te koester. Jy het my nooit misluk, en soms voel ek asof ek nie verdien nie die liefde wat julle bring, want ek het nooit kan betaal dit terug. Gelukkige verjaarsdag, Chantelle —Stephen (Talk) 06:26, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
This is pidgin Afrikaans. Ek wil om te sê "dankie" vir die feit dat altyd hier vir my. You don't use "om te" after wil, and the rest of the sentence lacks both a subject and a verb. If you add such a translation, at least tell the person that you hardly speak the language... Kolmiel (talk) 22:38, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Or were you trying to keep the Afrikaans just as bad as the English of the original question? Anyway... Kolmiel (talk) 22:39, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

She behaves like she's on fire

I find myself just staring at the computer, doing nothing smart.

Ich finde mich dabei den Computer zu glotzen und nichts Sinnvolles tue. —Stephen (Talk) 00:19, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
"Ich finde mich dabei" for English "I find myself doing something" sounds rather odd. I would say: Ich ertappe mich dabei. And you can't use "glotzen" with a direct object (except maybe Fernsehen, Film). Thus: Ich ertappe mich dabei, dass ich auf den Computer glotze (/starre) und nichts Sinnvolles tue. Kolmiel (talk) 22:27, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

scharf in Bavarian[edit]

Is the German word "scharf" (English "sharp") the same in Bavarian (ISO 639-3 bar) as it is in Standard High German (ISO 639-3 deu)? Nicole Sharp (talk) 06:48, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

scharf is used in Bavarian in some sense, but the more common Bavarian translation of scharf is rass. rass means sharp or tangy, as a quality of some foods. scharf is used to mean keen: Madl, i bin scharf auf di! (Girl, I am keen on you!) —Stephen (Talk) 15:26, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
