German attribution of source

How do I best translate into English the following German constructions: "SUBJECT, so SOURCE, PREDICATE" and "SUBJECT PREDICATE, so SOURCE"? An example sentence: "Und diese Bildungsrepublik, so Merkel vorige Woche im Parlament, sei der beste Sozialstaat."[1] I am looking for a translation that is as succinct as possible and yet sounds native. Sometimes I am inclined to use "SUBJECT PREDICATE, so SOURCE", as I have seen this in English, but I am afraid this does not sound perfectly native.

This could be documented at so#German. --Dan Polansky 08:54, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

In a newspaper article or the like, "SOURCE said" would be most idiomatic in English: "And this republic of education, Merkel said last week in Parliament, is the best social state". You could also use "according to SOURCE" at the end. —Angr 08:36, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

English to Persian

I'm trying to get a translation of "Nothing is true. Everything is permitted." but rather than trying to find an Arabic translation of it, I want it in Persian. I know that it's the same written language but the words themselves are different. I would like it written both in Persian/Arabic writing as well as an English transliteration for sounding it out.

Also, if I could get verification from a second source I'd appreciate it.

Perhaps Arabic is this, but I'm not sure: ليس هناك ما هو صحيح ، فكل شيء مباح (Laa shay'a waqi'a mutlaq bla kul'un mumkin). So you shouldn't tattoo it or something straight away. 16:31, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

This is confirming Arabic. --Kendah 20:26, 25 December 2011 (UTC)------ "Nothing is true, everything is permitted" Al Mualim (المُعلم). "La shay Waqe'on motlaq bal Kollon momken" Which is what Altair (الطاير) said after assassination of Al Mualim (المُعلم).

--Kendah 20:26, 25 December 2011 (UTC)------ The one used in game by (الطاير) Altair "لا شيءٌ واقِعٌ مُطلق، بل كلٌ مُمكِن" La shay Waqe'on motlaq bal Kollon momken --Kendah 20:26, 25 December 2011 (UTC)------ The correct should be "لا شَيءَ حقيقي، كل شيءٍ مُباح" La shay'a haqeeqey, kollu shay'en mobah

Help / Confirmation of Translations

Hi All,

I have recently been provided with translations of a phrase in a few different language scripts and would appreciate confirmation / help with these.

The phrase is originally Latin - Mea Gloria Fides, apparently meaning The Faith is My Glory (although some have said My Glorious Faith)

I am looking to have this translated into Greek and Hebrew (or written as they would have)

What I have so far is

האמונה היא כבודי

η πίστη είναι η δόξα μου

Are they correct??? If not what do they say? And does anybody know what they should read as???

I have provided the Latin as this may well be easier to translate from although I am unsure.....



They all say "Faith is my glory." They all look okay to me. The Greek is Modern Greek, of course. —Stephen (Talk) 16:31, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
Which sense of glory?​—msh210 (talk) 16:35, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi Guys, thanks for your help. Stephen - what would other Greek versions look like? I am thinking more along historical greek script.

Msh210 - not 100% sure the sense in which Glory is meant in this,the Latin phrase is a family motto. could be praise? or honour?

Are there any other historic scripts / languages this phrase would fit / translate into?

I think the Ancient Greek will go like this: ἡ πίστις ἐστίν ἡ ἐμή δόξα. —Stephen (Talk) 00:53, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Stephen - can you have a scan over the hebrew one? Possibly starting from english / Latin and working into Hebrew.....I have been told elsewhere this is not correct and am now concerned as this is for a headstone!

It looks good to me. There are many reasons why someone might want to say it differently...there is no way to know what elsewhere was talking about unless he explains it. Maybe he wants a different word for glory. See if he likes this one better. —Stephen (Talk) 14:03, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
If by "faith" you mean "religion" and by "glory" you mean "honor" then perhaps הדת היא כבודי. It's hard to translate polysemous words with no context.​—msh210 (talk) 17:08, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

- Hey, sorry to butt in like this but I'm a Lebanese young man and I do believe العيش لهذا اليوم ("Al-'aych lihadha lyaoum") is a Google Translation... it means "To live for that day", but in a grammatically useless way. When you wish to say 'live for the moment', meaning by that 'seize the day', you could say إغتنم اليوم ("ightanimil yaouma"), literally meaning, "make use of the day"; or you could say عش كل يومٍ بشكلٍ كاملٍ ("'ish kulla yaoumin bishaklin kamilin"), meaning "live each day fully".

I have been planning to get another tattoo and would like to have it in Arabic. Please translate from English to Arabic the phrase " My heart will never forget" again translate into Arabic.

Thank you.

قلبي لن ينسى أبدًا (since it is a tattoo, it is always a good idea to get a second opinion before you put it on) —Stephen (Talk) 01:04, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

-- Well, the translation of M. Stephen is quite decent, except for one slight detail: قلبي لن ينسى أبدًا is grammatically incorrect. A grammatically exact version would be قلبي لن ينسَ أبدًا ("Qalbi lan yansa' abadan") although it is more poetic in arabic to omit the "abadan" (ever). The translation I would go for is قلبي لن ينسَ ("Qalbi lan yansa'"). GeorgeSakr 07:12, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

English to Arabic

"if days didn't gather us together, memories will, and if my eyes couldn't see you, my heart will never forget you" into Arabic please.

إن لم تجمعنا الأيام تجمعنا الذكريات وإن حُجِبتِ يومًا عن نَظَراتي لن ينساكِ فؤادي Literally meaning "If days do not bring us together, memories do | And if you were ever masked (hidden) [if you ever came to be hidden] from my glances, my heart would not forget you" (It reads, "In lam tajma'nal ayyamou tajma'ounal dhikrayat | wa in houjibti yaouman 'an nadharati lan yansaki fouãdi"). Note that the harakaat (the small "diacritics" above and under the words) are not necessary, they're there to make reading the text easier.. But if you removed the "i" from "yansaki" (ينساكِ) or "houjibti" (حُجِبتِ) it would be read "yansaka" and "houjibta" (masculine). This version is for addressing a girl / woman. If you want to address a man, lose the kasra's ("i" diacritics):

إن لم تجمعنا الأيام تجمعنا الذكريات وإن حُجِبت يومًا عن نَظَراتي لن ينساك فؤادي "In lam tajma'nal ayyamou tajma'ounal dhikrayat | wa in houjibta yaouman 'an nadharati lan yansaka fouãdi"

Finally you can put "qalbi" (قلبي) instead of "fouãdi" (فؤادي) if you mean it less poetic, but both mean exactly the same thing - although "qalbi" is more frequently used among lovers, "fouãdi" is more frequent in traditional poetry.GeorgeSakr 07:12, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

hello everyone out there...i was wondering any anyone can help me with a couple of translations? I wanna get a tattoo the goes vertically down my spine say "ALWAYS AND FOREVER" im still unsure which language I want it in so maybe a few options would help me decide...ive narrowed it down a little...


thank you heaps....

Some of those languages are not designed to be written vertically. In particular, Aramaic, Hindi, and Arabic cannot be written vertically. Egyptian as a language is very ambiguous...there are Modern Egyptian Arabic, Coptic, Demotic, and Egyptian hieroglyphs (among others). The Oriental languages Japanese, Chinese, and Korean can be written vertically, and it is possible to write Latin and Cherokee vertically.
Cherokee (if you only see boxes or question marks, you have to install a Cherokee font):
ᎢᎪᎯᏛ ᎠᎴ ᏂᎪᎯᎸᎢ (i-go-hi-dv a-le ni-go-hi-lv-i)
(a) Semper æternumque
(b) Sæcula semperque
As with anything that you tattoo permanently onto your body, you should get at least a second opinion on the translations first. —Stephen (Talk) 09:31, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

thanx stephen for getting back to me so fast... just another question...if i wanted to get the "always and forever" horozontally written in aramaic,hindi or arabic how would they look? just trying a few options... or even in the oriental languages too if you dont mind.....sorry if im asking to much but thank you :)

Arabic is: دائمًا وإلى الأبد ... You first need to decide on what you want first, because each language has to be done by a different person and it really is an imposition to ask for so much work just to see some samples, most of which you will never use. —Stephen (Talk) 23:57, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi all. I want to request the English translation for the following sentence:

I know it is to do with the word-creating ability of hanja, but I'm not sure I can get the logic right. Can someone please help?


  • Translation: One may say that Hanja came effortlessly but how many new words will arise in our language about given that they may not be be written vertically?
  • Means: Hanja was rigid and prescibed, whereas the new form will increase the ability to make new words.

English to Irish Gaelic "Seeker" and "Wanderer"

Can any Gaelic speaker help me with these translations? Thanks.

I think wanderer is ruagaire. Seeker is more difficult. Asylum seeker is iarrthóir tearmainn. Or it could be a form of lorgaire (tracker) or cuardach (search). Depends on the meaning and context, but maybe this will help. Finder is aimsitheoir. —Stephen (Talk) 04:16, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you very much. The context I was thinking of for seeker was as in someone who is seeking for meaning or purpose, their place in life. So perhaps the closest would be a form of "cuardach" if there is not a word specific to "seek"..?

German: Jeder neue Anfang kommt vom Ende eines anderen Anfangs. ("Every new beggining comes from some other begginings end"). --Anatoli 02:06, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
¶ Is “beginning” misspelt in that phrase as well? --Pilcrow 02:08, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
In German? No, the first occurrence is in Nominativ, the 2nd (eines anderen Anfangs) is in Genitiv. --Anatoli 05:25, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
The entry for Anfang actually shows the genitive forms. --Anatoli 05:27, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

I'm assuming Zavia is a name, and it can't strictly be written in Sanskrit, but modern Devanagari (the writing most used for Sanskrit) can accommodate the "Z" sound which Sanskrit didn't have: ज़ाविया (Zāviyā). Not sure how to translate the other part, Sanskrit was rather... odd I guess. Lol. It'd probably be easier to translate that into some other language. — [ R·I·C ] Laurent — 05:51, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Serenity Prayer Request English to Dutch.

   Grant me the serenity;
   To accept the things I cannot change;
   The courage, to change the things I can;
   And the wisdom, to know the difference.
   Living one day at a time;
   Enjoying one moment at a time;
   Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
   Taking, as He did, this sinful world
   As it is, not as I would have it;
   Trusting that He will make all things right
   If I surrender to His Will;
   So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
   And supremely happy with Him
   Forever and ever in the next.

mind, body, soul

I hope this is close enough. I'm not religious so I am not sure if I understood all of the meaning correctly.

Verleen me de gemoedsrust;
De dingen die ik niet kan veranderen te accepteren;
De moed om te veranderen wat ik kan;
En de wijsheid om het verschil te herkennen.

Dag voor dag levend;
Genietend van één moment tegelijk;
De ellende aanvaardend als de weg naar de vrede;
Deze zondige wereld nemend, zoals Hij deed
Als zij is, niet als ik haar zou willen;
Erop vertrouwend dat Hij alles goed zal maken
Als ik mij onderwerp aan Zijn Wil;
Zodat ik redelijk gelukkig moge zijn in dit leven
En intens gelukkig met Hem
Voor eeuwig en altijd in het volgende.

No, not "readers": it's definitely singular. it's actually "(I/you/she) reads" or "(I/you/she) is reading". It's the feminine singular present-tense of the verb. That verb means "read" most commonly now, but can also mean "call out". For many verbs, the present tense is also used as a noun ("reader" (feminine) in this case), and while that sounds odd to me for this verb, I can't exclude the possibility.​—msh210 (talk) 18:35, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

No, śraddhā and chumnɨə are the pronunciations. The words are श्रद्धा (śraddhā) and ជំនឿ.

śraddhā and chumnɨə are a way to write them in our letters. Sanskrit uses the Devanagari alphabet, Khmer uses the Khmer alphabet, and English uses the Roman alphabet. To write श्रद्धा (śraddhā) in Roman letters, it’s śraddhā. —Stephen (Talk) 19:42, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

That's hardly true. Generally an adverb in a question like this indicates skill. To speak Latine in classical Latin would be to speak good Latin. This is a usage adopted from Greek.

This might be a lot to ask

But can you please translate this poem in Cyrillic alphabet?

Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush. Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.

Many languages use the Cyrillic alphabet. To be clear, do you want this translated into a specific language, or a simple transliteration into Cyrillic (i.e. the same English phonetic sounds, represented not by Latin but Cyrillic script)? Tempodivalse [talk] 18:01, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

@ Tempodivalse

I sort of wanted it to look like this. So I guess it's Romanian Cyrillic. I want it to be just the way it is so yes, maybe you can just transliterate it if that's possible. I wanted it tattooed on me. I'd really appreciate your help. :)

Hmm. Romanian Cyrillic hasn't been used since the 1860s, and that particular text you linked to employs the old, archaic alphabet, which hasn't been used for over 150 years. It's significantly different from modern Cyrillic, and I don't know if we have any editors who can do a reliable transliteration in it (although I'll ask around.) Would using the modern Cyrillic alphabet be suitable for your purposes?
(BTW: please add four tildes ~~~~ at the end of your messages so we can tell more easily which user wrote it. Also, you can type your reply directly under my reply instead of creating a new section each time.) Tempodivalse [talk] 20:00, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Can anyone do this quite quickly?? <3 English to Latin

Please can someone translate "Thank you for teaching me Latin" into Latin?? Yes, I know that I should know it, but the idiom has confused me here :S

In Classical Latin, there are no nouns to represent names of languages. Languages were indicated using adverbs, so you'd need to thank someone for teaching you "to write in Latin" or "to speak in Latin" or "to read in Latin". --EncycloPetey 20:02, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
What about 'lingua latina'? That's a noun... —CodeCat 20:38, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
That phrase is exceptionally rare in Classical Latin; it didn't become the norm until the medieval period. It's a description using an adjective and noun, and would have been understood literaaly as "language of the Latin(s)." It wasn't used as a proper name for the language until much later. You can also find rare instances of 'lingua Romana', but that's also not the norm. --EncycloPetey 20:44, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
I have to respectfully disagree ... lingua Latina shows up already for Latin in Varro and is all over Cicero. The idiom for thanks is the dative with a form of ago + the plural of gratia, for the reason one can append a noun clause introduced by quod. I would render this: tibi gratias ago, quod lingaum Latinam docere (or) docuisse. Salmoneus Aiolides Χαῖρε 20:39, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Gellius' Noctes Atticae is the only work where I've seen the phrase "lingua latina" (in various inflections) appear more than once, and I find it only once in the digitized works of Cicero that I have available (checking nom., gen., and acc. forms). It occurs with roughly the same frequency as "lingua romana" in the collected Classical texts I can search electronically. --EncycloPetey 20:52, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
I'm sorry to have butted in, EncycloPetey, without being on here enough to engage actively. Right now I have to go to bed, but will return to this so we can hash it out. Right now I'll just say that lingua + adj. is common and that Latinus predominates over Romanus, but the usage is most common in marking outthe difference between lingua Graeca and lingua Latina. For a collection of examples, the section of the lemma in Lewis and short is:
The tongue or language of a people: lingua Latina, Graeca, Cic. Fin. 1, 3, 10: Graeca et Latina lingua, Varr. R. R. 2, 1, 6: (Massilia) tam procul a Graecorum regionibus, disciplinis linguāque divisa, Cic. Fl. 26, 63: quod quidem Latina lingua sic observat, ut, etc., id. Or. 44, 150: Gallicae linguae scientiam habere, Caes. B. G. 1, 47: qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli, appellantur, id. ib. 1, 1: dissimili linguā, Sall. C. 6, 2: linguā utrāque, i. e. Greek and Latin, Hor. S. 1, 10, 23; so, auctores utriusque linguae, Quint. prooem. 1; 1, 1, 14: Mithridates, cui duas et viginti linguas notas fuisse, id. 11, 2, 50: haud rudis Graecae linguae, Curt. 5, 11, 4; 5, 4, 4; Nep. Milt. 3, 2: Syrus in Tiberim Orontes et linguam et mores vexit, Juv. 3, 63
I think I've seen more examples in Cicero (hence my comment above), but there's every chance that I'm dead wrong. I'll look into. Glad to see a pointed philological conversation on this page. Salmoneus Aiolides Χαῖρε 04:12, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

irish gaelic tanslation


I don't know if you can help me. Please can you tell me the correct translation for

Little great one

In gaelic irish please. Its the meaning of my other halfs name.

Many thanks


I suppose it could be "amháin iontach agus beag". It doesn’t make much sense to me, I’ve never heard of a name like that. —Stephen (Talk) 07:27, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Hi Stephen,

Thank you for the speedy reply :-) My other halfs name is Darren, according to all the naming sites its Gaelic meaning is Little Great One. I am looking at having this tattooed on me, rather than having Little Great One, i thought if it was in Gaelic translation it would be much better.


Amháin iontach agus beag would mean "only wonderful and small". "Great" in the sense of "a great man" is mór; cf. w:ga:Alastar Mór (Alexander the Great). The only way to say "one" in reference to a person is duine, so Duine mór beag would mean "a small (in stature), great (in quality) person". I have no idea who came up with the idea that Darren means "little great one" in any Gaelic language. —Angr 08:52, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

In this post there are links to 3 books on the Panchatantram by Vishnu Sarma.

1. Sanskrit commentary on Pancahtantra 2. Sanskrit text of Panchatantra with Hindi translation by JP Mishra 3. English translation of Panchatantra by AW Ryder

According to Indian tradition, the Panchatantra was written around 200 BCE by Pandit Vishnu Sarma, a sage. However, based as it is on older oral traditions, its antecedents among storytellers probably hark back to the origins of language. One of the most influential Sanskrit contributions to world literature, it is “certainly the most frequently translated literary product of India” and there are over 200 versions in more than 50 languages.

In the Indian tradition, the Panchatantra is a nitisastra, a treatise on political science and human conduct, or niti. It is said that Vishnu Sarma’s objective was to instruct three dull and ignorant princes in the principles of polity, by means of stories. Panchatantra consists of five books, which are called:

1. Mitra Bhedha (The Loss of Friends) 2. Mitra Laabha also called Mitra Samprapti (Gaining Friends) 3. Kakolukiyam (Crows and Owls) 4. Labdhapranasam (Loss Of Gains) 5. Aparikshitakaraka (Ill-Considered Action / Rash deeds)

It seems to be misspelled. For one, it’s not all one word, it needs spaces. The last part, hoʻomanawanui, means patience. Naneaika means different things depending on how you break it into words, such as "nanea i ka". Nanea i ka hoʻomanawanui could mean something like tranquility due to patience.

Thank you Stephen the translation i had for the first phrase was Nau ko'u aloha (that was for my love is yours) then child - keiki which i would assume i would have written as "Nau ko'u aloha ko'u keiki"? the second phrase was a tattoo i saw that said "desire or reason" which the guy actually put on his arm translated to a language i cant remember but the word in the middle was spelt "kai"

The Greek word for "and" is και. "Desire and reason" in Greek could be "επιθυμία και λόγος". The Hawaiian word nau means chew or munch. The word for "yours" is nāu. I’m not sure that "Nāu koʻu aloha koʻu keiki" makes much sense. It looks Anglicized.

/ɪt.min.ʃiz.ɪn.əˈgæŋ/ —Stephen (Talk) 12:58, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
I'd say /ɪt.mi:nz/, and I pronounce gang more like /gei̯ŋ/, but that's all I'd change. — [Ric Laurent] — 19:30, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
I think the following /ʃ/ swallows up the z of /minz/. It is possible to say /minz.ʃiz/ by emphasizing the z.ʃ with a hiatus between. I don’t think it is normal to do that. Of course, certain of the vowels can be lengthened at will, like /mi:n/, but it is not necessary and I think it is most commonly pronounced without the lengthening in /minz/. It is also possible to stress other words instead of gang, or in addition to gang, for different effects. —Stephen (Talk) 20:10, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
I think I just talk funny lol. Slowing myself down, though, I think I do say it more like /minʃiz/ or /minsʃiz/ more than what I originally said. — [Ric Laurent] — 14:44, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Need scottish gaelic translation for "Always beside you"

Hi all,

I need the translation for "Always beside you" into Scottish Gaelic. So far I got "Daonnan by sibh", "Daonnan ri taobh sibh" and "Daonnan dluth dhuibh" Which one is correct now??

Please help, Thx, Jay

From the viewpoint of Irish Gaelic, the first one is definitely wrong. I think they should be "Daonnan dlùth dhut" or "Daonnan ri taobh thu". Sibh is the formal word for you, not good for a close relationship. Leat/dhut/thu is the intimate word for you.

Love the beautiful life in hawaiian

I wanna get this tattooed on me please help. I was told its nani aloha kahanida can you tell me if this is rigjt? Thank you

nani means beauty. aloha means love. There is no such word as "kahanida". Hawaiian does not even have the letter d. Your phrase does not contain much meaning as far as I can tell. You have to translate meaning, and there is no meaning that I can make out of it.
"Long life" is ola loa or ola lōʻihi. "Happy life" is nohona hauʻoli. Breath of life is mauli ola. Source of life is kumulipo. Full of life can be any of ʻeuʻeu, hōʻeuʻeu, ʻeleʻeleu, ʻeu, hōʻeu, or hōʻeleʻeleu. May God grant me life is "e ola au i ke Akua". Life-bringing sun is ka lā hiki ola. Life is in Hawaii is aia ke ola i Hawaiʻi. —Stephen (Talk) 21:24, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

English to Aramaic pleeeeease!!


I am looking to translate 'Rise from the ashes' from English to Aramaic for a tattoo I have planned. The sentence will be tattooed down my spine starting from the top of my neck, down so the correct grammar is important.

Thanks for any help you can provide.


Rise the imperative ("Hey! You! Rise from the ashes!"), the present tense ("You/they/we/I rise from the ashes."), the infinitive (It's hard to rise from the ashes.), or what? And if it's not the infinitive, then also specify what person is doing the rising: first person (I, we), second (you), or third (he, she, it, they); plural (we, you, they) or singular (I, you, he, she, it); and masculine (I, we, you, he, it, they) or feminine (I, we, you, she, it, they). Then maybe someone can help you.​—msh210 (talk) 18:45, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Translate english to latin

forever his Forever her ---> for tattos! Thanks!

This won’t work very well in Latin. You could use sua in perpetuum and suus in perpetuum, but the first means something like "(I, a woman, am) that one’s forever", and the second means "(I, a man, am) that one’s forever". They show the sex of the person wearing the tattoo, but they don’t show the sex of the person you belong to. Or you could both wear Eius in sæcula, which means "That one’s forever." —Stephen (Talk) 03:30, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Very important Latin Translation confirmation/help please!

Hello to whoever reads this!

My purpose behind this translation (as well as giving you an understanding of the concept I'm trying to capture with it) is I am engaged to someone in the military who is currently doing some intense training for a very serous job/mission. We've planned to be wed a little while before he leaves for many months to (currently) one of the most dangerous places on earth =( ... (lol sorry so vague but I cannot give any more detail than that). We are both very strong Christian so I'm looking for something that will be our "half a world away" saying that we can carry with us through our lives. I'm hoping to put it on his wedding ring, and he may end up with it tattooed (but that is yet to be determined). So because of that I am checking many sources, it is something very important to me that it be correct and properly expressed.

What I'm trying to translate is essentially: Is in TWO parts. FIRST part: "Lord by/through your favor/will"

SECOND part: "I pray that God may protect you" -- I have been given "ut te Deus tueatur precor" meaning "I pray that Good may protect you" - I really like it and it seems pretty dead on for what I'm trying to say. If someone can just confirm for me that it is proper please <3!

Now Back to the FIRST section!: I am COMPLETELY stumped here =( ... I really want it to convey the message that I'm calling out to the Lord asing "by your favor!" (or "please through your will!").

Will a variation of "Domine propter voluntati" or "Domine tua voluntati" work? (I know the cases may very well be wrong). Is voluntati/voluntate/etc OK to use for the message I'm trying to convey or is favente the better choice?

The two will be tied together to look something like (just as an example of what I like): "Domine tua voluntati, ut te Deus tueatur precor"

I'm almost there just in time for my fiance to be able to contact me soon, so I'm trying to have it at that time. Thank you so much for the help, it's really important to me!

This is too complex, detailed and long to read. I’ll just hit a couple of things that jump out at me. That mess for the "first part" seems to be Deo volente. No, that’s about all that I can figure out easily that you are asking for. —Stephen (Talk) 05:40, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

thanks so much stephen! this is perfect i think. to be more descriptive on agape- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agape - "love that is divine, unconditional, self-sacrificing, active, volitional, and thoughtful". is អនុគ្រោះ still the most appropriate khmer equivalent Stephen ?


It is a bit difficult to imagine divine love except as worship. But I think parents everywhere love their children unconditionally and are self-sacrificing where they are concerned. I don’t know what active, volitional, or thoughtful love is. Is love ever volitional? This all seems to be something to do with philosophy, and I am not a philosopher. —Stephen (Talk) 04:37, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

HELP! English to Romaji & Hiragana

I've been self teaching Hiragana and Romaji, it's been rather difficult but I found a couple of pen friends in Japan. One of my friends sadly lost a couple of family members in the tsunami and will not be writing to me anymore. My other friend has not replied to me in a while, I am scared for her, but I also wonder if my Japanese is good enough. I know many words and phrases but I am unsure about sentence structure and correct punctuation. I think she may not be writing back because she does not understand me, or I do not make sense to her. I have came up with a translation from below but I would like a accurate translation, so that a native speaker will understand. I want to be able to compare and learn where I went wrong. If I could ask for a translation in romaji for my benefit and translation into Hiragana. This is what I would like to be translated:

"I have not received a reply from you, I have sent you three letters before this but I can understand if you did not receive the third. This is because I wrote your address from memory. I hope you and your family are safe and well. Can I ask if the Tsunami effected your town? I was so shocked and worried. My other Pen friend, Ami, lost her son and her aunt. She apologized because she could not write to me anymore. I have sympathy and grief for all the family's who lost their loved ones. I often wonder how she is, as I do you. I will understand if you must concentrate on other aspects of your life. Though if you could write me back just so I know you are alright. I would love to hear from you. I send you my love and care, your pen friend."

I don’t know how to say that. How about some of this instead:
ᎠᎾᎵᎮᎵᎬ ᎡᏚᏓ (analiheligv eduda = Thanks Grandfather)
ᎭᏅᏓᏗᎠᏍᎪ (hanvdadiasgo = Do you remember)
ᏙᎾᏓᎪᎲᎢ (donadagohvi = we will see each other again)
ᎣᏍᏓ ᎵᏍᏔᏯᏆᎵᏅ (osda listayaqualinv = It was great, but I have to get home soon)
Note that there are different words for grandfather and I don’t know which you use. Maternal Grandfather = ᎡᏚᏓ (eduda); Paternal Grandfather = ᎡᏂᏏ (enisi). —Stephen (Talk) 10:37, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

May I please be permitted to know what the term ѳеатрѣ means in modern English? --Pilcrow 21:34, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Just sounding it out, it sure looks like an old spelling of the English word theatre. -- Eiríkr Útlendi | Tala við mig 23:31, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
If it does mean theatre (which I find fantastically likely) it would probably refer to dramatic theater and not a cinema or something, it's important to note that. — [Ric Laurent] — 23:38, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
Except it is not the nominative case. It is in the locative (or prepositional) case: въ Россійскомъ Ѳеатрѣ ("in Russian Theatre"). It was a pre-1918 spelling. —Stephen (Talk) 03:51, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
The modern lemma spelling is театр (teátr). In the pre-1918 spelling it was ѳеатръ (teátr). Letters ѣ () (now completely out of use) and ъ () (not used in the final position any more) look similar but have very different usages. After the reform letter ѳ (f) has been replaced with ф (f) (f) or т (t) (t) depending on the pronunciation. --Anatoli 05:36, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello Oda --
When you're looking for a translation of a single term, you can often find it in the table of translations here on Wiktionary. For instance, the entry for daughter includes a translation table, which lists the Sanskrit term दुहितृ (duhitr̩). The entry for mother similarly lists the Sanskrit term मातृ (mā́tṛ). -- HTH, Eiríkr Útlendi | Tala við mig 16:40, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Seeking Sanskrit word - for serendipity, meant to be, fate

I have heard this word/phrase used before, I just can't remember it! My internet searches did not lead me onto the right path.

Thanks, Heather

serendipity is different from meant to be or fate. The word serendipity is a new word, and any Sanskrit equivalent can only be a translation of the meaning of serendipity. Perhaps क्षणवीर्यम् (kṣaṇavīryam), an auspicious moment. Or सौभाग्यम् (saubhāgyam), the good fortunateness in a man and woman securing favor and firm devotion with one other. Or विधि (vidhi), fate, destiny, luck. Or पताका (patākā), auspiciousness, good fortune.
As for meant to be, it could be अवश्यंभाविन् (avaśyambhāvin), destined to take place, inevitable. Or प्राप्त (prāpta), fated, destined. Or भवितव्यम् (bhavitavyam), what is destined to happen. Or भाविन् (bhāvin), what is predestined. —Stephen (Talk) 08:11, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Stephen, thank you!! The word I couldn't remember was bhavin, meant to happen. I appreciate your help.

Best regards, Heather

I would have said:
Salutem! Bene vales? Si valeas tam igitur valeo. —Stephen (Talk) 12:43, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
Si vales valeo is a stock phrase in Latin, a common greeting at the beginnings of the letters. "Are you well?" is a question, so it needs to take -ne: Valesne? In some common verbs, the -sne can be contracted to -n; if this is one of them, then it can be contracted to Valen?. But I don't know whether this is one of the verbs that does that. —Angr 08:59, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

English to Khmer (updated request)

Hi! Is it possible to let me know if the word "រស់នៅ [rʊəh nɨv]" suits better to the word "live" in Cambodian? Or maybe គង់នៅ [kʊəŋ nɨv]. The meaning I am looking for should be more like "exist" and not "reside". Thanks! K.

គង់នៅ (kʊəng nɨv) means to stay, remain, be located; also, survive.
រស់នៅ (rʊəh nɨv) means to live, dwell, inhabit; to exist; also, to survive.
ការរស់នៅ (kaa rʊəh nɨv) (the prefix ការ is like the English suffix [[-tion) means life, living conditions.
រស់ (rʊəh) means to live, exist, to be alive; survive.
មាន (mien) means to exist, there is/are.
ជីវន្ត (jiivoan) means to live, to exist.
ស្ថិត (stʰət) means to last, endure, exist, reside at; to reside at; be static.
Sometimes different words are used for such a meaning. For example, the word:
គ្រាន់ (kroan) means to be sufficient, be enough, be satisfactory...but in
គ្រាន់តែជាក្រដាសប៉ុណ្ណោះ (kroan tae jie krɑdaah ponnɑh), it translates as "to exist only on paper".
In a computer message, if a directory does not exist, the word to use is ​មាន (mien), to exist. —Stephen (Talk) 11:02, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Usually we don’t do such a large piece of text as this. I will take a brief moment to translate it, but I’m not going to go to any trouble to polish or refine it:
Ich denke, dass es heute viele jugendliche Probleme in der ganzen Welt gibt. Peer-Druck kann eine Ursache für diese Probleme sein, ebenso wie Stress und Veränderungen des Körpers. Drogen und Alkohol gehören zu den wichtigsten Ursachen der massiven Probleme. Schnelles Fahren und Rennsport geben noch andere Probleme bei jungen Menschen, und auch Mobbing.

In Irish Gaelic, "Watch over me" is Féach ar os cionn dom; and "Forever in our hearts" is Go deo i ár gcroí. Maybe you can find someone who can convert that to Scottish Gaelic. —Stephen (Talk) 08:37, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Hey, I was just wondering if anyone could please possibly clarify how to say 'remember' in Khmer. នៅចាំ or ចាំ

in the context of remembering the past? Thankyou!

នៅចាំ = to remember, to still remember; to wait (for)
ចាំ = to remember, think of again, recall with some effort, keep in mind; to retain in the memory; to memorize
ចាំជាតិ (to remember a past life).
In the context of remembering the past, ចាំ. —Stephen (Talk) 14:22, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Gandhi translation to sanskrit and hindi

"live as if tomorrow was your last day, learn as if you were to live forever"

Can i help translating this into sanskrit and hindi, as i am going to get a tatoo.

I can’t find the exact quote. I think he said it in English, which means that any Hindi version would have to be a translation. You might get the following Hindi double-checked to see if it is okay:
जीने के रूप में अगर कल अपने आखिरी दिन था, जानने के रूप में यदि आप हमेशा के लिए रहते थे. —Stephen (Talk) 15:20, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
Also, Gandhi's native language, and the language he usually wrote in, was Gujarati, so even if he didn't say it in English, he probably said it in Gujarati rather than Hindi. —Angr 21:42, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Ptolomy Hibernia

Many thanks for having a translation request. Hopefully you might be able to help. It seems that the name of the people and places may have been corrupted as it was transferred into Latin. Ουιδουα and Ουεννιχνιον are two of the words in question, usually written as Vidua and Vennicnium. Since the both have also the same beginning Ου, I would like to know if it implies a meaning, fire for example. Here is my first attempt towards this issue: http://unknownswilly.wordpress.com/2010/05/22/lost-in-translation/

In the hope you can shed some light on this problem. With much appreciation.

I can tell you that Ουεννιχνιον is not the spelling, it’s Οὐεννίκνιον, with a κ (Οὐιδούα and Οὐεννίκνιον). And no, there is no meaning. There are two words οὐ (not) and οὗ (where, when), but these aren’t those. The οὐ- here simply represents the sound of w. I don’t know anything about the compilation of this geography book, but possibly an Irish correspondent wrote the name of his place in Roman letters starting with the letter F, and then Ptolomei might have misunderstood it to be the old Greek digamma Ϝ, which is a w. —Stephen (Talk) 21:51, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
That seems unlikely, because Irish didn't develop the F phoneme until the 6th century, when the digamma was no longer in use and Latin was more common in Europe than Greek. On the other hand, F was originally W in Irish. —CodeCat 22:48, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

I hate and I love. Perhaps you're asking how I do this? I don't know, but I feel it happening, and it's torture.

Learn what you don't know: one work of (Domitius) Marsus or learned Pedo often stretches out over a doublesided page. A work isn't long if you can't take anything out of it, but you, Cosconius, write even a couplet too long.

Ptolemy Hibernia part2

Thank you for clearing this up. It was an idea which crossed my mind while looking through a greek version of his book and I noticed that a good few place names started with the same or similar letter combination, hence my conclusion that it may mean something. Can the words in question be translated? Many thanks.

They can be transliterated as Vidua and Vennicnium, but they can be translated only if you know the modern names. Vidua seems to be translatable to "Lough Swilly". Vennicnium is the name of a cape at the entrance of Donegall Bay, but I don’t know its modern name. The Latin and Greek names probably come from the native Ancient British (Celtic) names in use at the time, said to have been "Ven üic nüi" and "Ui dov" (meaning Deep River). —Stephen (Talk) 10:51, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Beautiful life....in khmer please

Thank you for responding. So putting the both together will create beautiful life? I am quite nervous about the writing, I want a tattoo of this. I love the writing I think it is very beautiful I have heard so many horror stories about wrong meanings.

You should have one or more native speakers check it before you commit to a permanent tattoo. But yes, Khmer doesn’t put spaces between words...Khmer words go right together with no spaces. Spaces are used between sentences. It is the same in Thai, Burmese, Laotian, Chinese and Japanese. No word spaces.
Just to make sure that you have a system that can handle Khmer fonts, this phrase should look like four letters; there is a sort of flattened teardrop over the first letter, and a similar one over the second letter; underneath the fourth letter, there is a sort of fancy H. But if you see more than four letters, and if you see little + marks, it means your system does not handle Khmer fonts correctly. Another way to check this is to click on ខ្ញុំ. An image on that page shows what you should see, which is one single letter, with a little circle on top, a ~ underneath, and a little straight mark underneath that. If you see more than one letter, or any + signs, your system doesn’t read Khmer right. —Stephen (Talk) 13:29, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

You are close.

Maybe it's one of those language gaps. There is actually a Mandarin counterpart for this word as well. JamesjiaoTC 22:05, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

From the look of fr:mettre le doigt sur I don't think this is a good translation of put one's finger on. Can anyone confirm or deny? Fugyoo 01:59, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

I think it’s okay. mettre le doigt sur might best be translated as pinpoint, identify, hit, or discover in various sentences, but I think that’s pretty much what put one's finger on means:
On a mis le doigt sur un os = it has hit a snag
Nous avons mis le doigt sur un effet collatéral inatendu = We’ve identified an unexpected side effect.

A few Filipino comments that I can't quite figure out

These may be using texting abbreviations. They are excerpted from a Facebook thread as a Filipina friend of mine is learning in real time that a close friend of hers in the military has been killed in an ambush.

Could someone please translate these to English for me?

Thank you.

Here are the phrases, I'm removing the speakers's names and replacing those with numbers, and have deleted huge portions of the thread and need to tell you that for context purposes:

1: Michael miguel bje..basi wla ka kaila ato..oh kabatch to nla. Luoy namatay og apil ghapon..kadtong uyab ni irenne gamil btw..kaila ka? October 19 at 11:45pm

and one final exchange (from which I earlier omitted the names of the writers and can't immediately reconstruct with numbers):

Mao lge pe..grabe na kau tension ari ba. In Jesus name lng intawon ipalayo ring lugara..c erwin pd gani gihagad pd cya sa opisyal iyaha clasm8 sfoc,nibalibad cya taz kron dghan patay..iyaha clasm8 naigo sa spinal cord kron..gikulbaan nko ari.

Thank you, Stephen, for trying. I spent hours at it and gave up. That's why I showed up here. Am wondering if you'd be so kind as to share your best guess of what you think is being said in this one paragraph:

di,,kadto naasign sya adto..2 years nami adto tyma ja naa man girl na nagflirt2 maong nakasila,,now 4 years napod mi hapit

Thanks, kwc

It looks like: ... it was ... she went ... 2 years ... man jeans ... girl ... now almost 4 years .... —Stephen (Talk) 02:28, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, Stephen. I was getting something close to that. And maybe because I have access to more context and backgroun and because I've since spoken with her and she said something to me somewhat similar, I think it may mean something like: "No, he'd already signed up to go there. [Into the military.]) For 2 years it was delicious, this available man who would nag and flirt with me -- this girl in jeans, and now it's been almost four years that we've been close."

Just curious, do you see that in there? I think the nakasila should be nako sila. I can't figure out the word 'tyma' at all.

I COULD be way off. But she said to me that "Yes, we had been really close for almost four years now" when we spoke and that has led me to believe that the way I pieced the rest of it together might be close.

(He was, I think, seven years older than her. She was a high school student four years ago.)

Yes, I can see some of that in there. To make matters worse, she mixes in English with Filipino grammar, or put together in funny ways, and it is very confusing. It is like her own personal secret language that no one else knows. —Stephen (Talk) 05:27, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Appreciate your help, Stephen.

Think my above use of "delicious" probably would be better translated in context as "delightful." And my use of "available" probably, in context, should connote "desirable," 'eligible-bachelor' types of meanings.

p.s. As I've been interacting a lot with Filipinos the last month or so, I've found they nearly all tend to intermingle English with their region's Filipino, as both are official languages in the country. Filipino English, though, is quite different from American or British English. Even though English is taught in the schools, it is not taught by people from traditional English speaking countries. So the Filipino English seems to be a Filipino hybrid that uses sentence constructions that work better in the Asiatic tongues. They use English words, but construct sentences as though they were using a different language. Combine that with the five or six different variations of the Filipino language(s) used on different islands and in different regions, colloquialisms, folk sayings, common SMS texting abbreviations, and, as you noted, misspellings, and it can get quite confusing. And the accents vary from region to region, too, in how they speak English. I'm finding it fascinating. Suppose that I'm learning a lot, but it feels like I've hardly scratched the surface. Am going to keep scratching though.

English Poem into German

Can anyone translate this poem into German. I need it urgently for a memorial.

When I die if you need to weep Cry for your brother or sister Walking the street beside you And when you need me put your arms around anyone And give them what you need to give me.

I want to leave you something Something better than words or sounds.

Look for me in the people I've known or loved And if you cannot give me away At least let me live in your eyes and not on your mind.

You can love me most by letting hands touch hands By letting bodies touch bodies And by letting go of children that need to be free.

Love doesn't die, people do So when all that's left of me is love Give me away.

Wenn ich sterbe, falls du weinen musst
Weine um deinen Bruder oder um deine Schwester
Neben dir auf der Straße
Und wenn du mich brauchst, umarme irgend jemanden
Und gib ihm, was du mir geben wolltest.

Ich will dir etwas vererben
was besser ist als Worte oder Laute.

Such mich in den Menschen, die ich gekannt und geliebt habe
Und wenn du mich nicht verschenken kannst
Lass mich wenigstens in deinen Augen leben und nicht in deinem Sinn.

Du kannst mich am besten lieben, indem du Hände andere Hände berühren lässt,
Körper andere Körper berühren lässt,
und Kinder loslässt, die frei sein müssen.

Die Liebe stirbt nicht, die Menschen aber schon.
Und wenn alles, was von mir übrig bleibt, die Liebe ist,
Verschenke mich.

A translation from English to Korean please?

How do you say, I don't even have the courage to tell you how I feel, in Korean?

내가 충분히 용기가 없습니다, 그래서 내 기분이 어떤지 말할 수 없습니다. (naega chungbunhi yong-giga eopsseumnida, geulaeseo nae gibun-i eotteonji malhal su eopsseumnida) —Stephen (Talk) 02:39, 27 October 2011 (UTC)
Amazing! I thought of having a go at this translation but gave up. I should brush up my Korean. I can only translate very basic sentences. Let me break it up a bit and give a more standard transliteration:
(nae) (ga) 충분히 (chungbunhi) 용기 (yonggi) (ga) 없습니다 (eopseumnida), 그래서 (geuraeseo) (nae) 기분 (gibun) (i) 어떤 (eotteon) (ji) (mal) (hal) (su) 없습니다 (eopseumnida).
My revised transliteration: Nae-ga chungbunhi yonggi-ga eopsseumnida, ​​geuraeseo nae gibun-i eotteon-ji marhal su eopsseumnida.
Not sure wiktionary covers the construct ... (su) 없다 (eopda) (...su eopda) "cannot do smth.". I don't quite understand why it has to follow the future determiner "할" (hal) of the verb 하다 (hada) (hada)
Doesn't 기분 (gibun) mean "mood" rather than courage? I thought it was an equivalent of the Japanese 気分.
There are other unclear things to me like 어떤지 but will try to figure out the usage. --Anatoli 03:23, 27 October 2011 (UTC)
Yes, 기분 (gibun) means mood. 용기 (yonggi) means courage. More literally, 그래서 (geuraeseo) (nae) 기분 (gibun) (i) 어떤 (eotteon) (ji) (mal) (hal) (su) 없습니다 (eopseumnida) means "so [how I feel] [cannot say]". —Stephen (Talk) 05:44, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Hmm, I would say [seɪnˈdʒeɪmzˌstɹiːt] and [juːˈlɪsiːzˌ ...] For words that end in [z] already you usually don't add another [əz] when pluralizing. — lexicógrafa | háblame — 00:45, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
I add it myself though, maybe others don't? —CodeCat 00:56, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
In American English, it is possible to pronounce them with the additional final [əz], but it sounds very colloquial and informal. In normal educated speech, the plain forms and the possessive forms are pronounced the same. In American English, these are [seɪntˈdʒeɪmzˌstɹiːt], [juˈlɪsiːzˌstɔːɹi], and [juˈlɪsiːzˌwaɪf]. —Stephen (Talk) 07:42, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
It might be a feature of Irish English, which is the variety I speak. A major hospital in Dublin is called St. James's Hospital with an extra 's instead of '. —CodeCat 12:22, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
For the first one, I'd say [sənˈdʒeɪmzɪzˌstɹiː], in Yorkshire we drop the final 't' in street, plus I say something a bit between [ɪz] and [əz] for the sound found in a lot of plurals, like houses. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:36, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
I bet you say [stɹiːʔ] with a glottal stop, not [stɹiː]. It doesn't rhyme with bee, does it? Anyway, the transcription of these phrases varies depending on which accent of English you're going for. I'd say it's [sənˈdʒeɪmz ˌstɹiːt], [juˌlɪsiːz ˈstɔːɹi], and [juˌlɪsiːz ˈwaɪf] in Received Pronunciation and [seɪnt ˈdʒeɪmz ˌstɹit], [juˌlɪsiz ˈstɔɹi], and [juˌlɪsiz ˈwaɪf] in General American. (General American doesn't have contrastive vowel length, so I'd omit the length marks from the transcription.) I'd only add an extra [ɪz/əz] in the pronunciation if the spelling were James's and Ulysses's. —Angr 14:15, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
Funnily enough, I pronounce the t if there's a word following 'street'. Mglovesfun (talk) 14:28, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

House of your dreams

words for house of your dreams in Portuguese

casa dos seus sonhos. —Angr 14:18, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
I think the definite article "a" should really be used here, regardless of the original text... "A casa dos seus sonhos" or "A casa dos teus sonhos". I believe the latter would be more commonly used in Portugal or countries whose dialects are based on European Portuguese. — [Ric Laurent] — 14:59, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
I hesitated between casa alone and a casa but finally went with the literal translation of the English without any article. Yes, teus is more common in Portugal than in Brazil. See for example the Portuguese title of the film You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger: In Brazil it was called Você vai conhecer o homem dos seus sonhos, while in Portugal it was called Vais conhecer o homem dos teus sonhos. —Angr 16:30, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

息子 > musuko > son(s), i.e. boy(s) (Japanese doesn't really have plurals)

greek words on william clark's tombstone (of Lewis and Clark fame)


These three words are on William Clark's tombstone in Bellefontaine cemetary in St. Louis, Missouri.

My best guess doesn't make much sense, something like Lia the close or Lia the narrow.

If it helps, his first wife's name was Julia but I could find no reference to Lia as a nickname.

I can't find any photos showing this inscription at Find-a-grave. Are we positive it's ΛΙΑ ΤΗΣ ΣΤΕΝΗΣ and not ΔΙΑ ΤΗΣ ΣΤΕΝΗΣ? That would mean "through the narrow strip of land". The phrase (using στενός as an adjective modifying a following noun) occurs in the Bible: Matthew 7:13 εισελθατε δια της στενης πυλης "enter through the narrow gate" and Luke 13:24 αγωνιζεσθε εισελθειν δια της στενης θυρας "strive to enter through the narrow door". —Angr 22:39, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Need to translate phrase into Sanskrit and Hebrew

I am trying to find a proper translation of "Blood of a slave, heart of a king." into Sanskrit and Hebrew.

Thank you,


Hebrew: דם עבד, לב מלך. I can't find the Sanskrit word for 'slave', but the rest is असृक्X, हृदयं राज्ञः (replace X with the word for 'slave' in the genitive case when someone finds it). —Angr 09:31, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
Slave is दासजनं (dāsjanaṁ), भुजिष्य (bhujiṣya), गोप्यक (gōpyak), गोप्य (gōpya). —Stephen (Talk) 10:17, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
Of those, bhujiṣya and gopya seem to be the most common, but bhujiṣya also means "freedman", so I'm going to go with gopya: असृग्गोप्यस्य, हृदयं राज्ञः (asṛg gopyasya, hṛdayaṃ rājñaḥ). (I forgot the external sandhi between -m and r- above, but I've corrected it now.) I know that word order is free in Sanskrit, but I don't know enough about Sanskrit to know how to alter word order for rhetorical effect. If I were translating this into Latin, I'd say sanguis servi, regis cor with the words for "slave" and "king" right next to each other to emphasize the contrast. That's certainly grammatically possible in Sanskrit too (असृग्गोप्यस्य, राज्ञो हृदयम् asṛg gopyasya, rājño hṛdayam), but I have no idea if it has the same rhetorical effect as in Latin. —Angr 10:43, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

Thank you...I really appreciate the translation help.

Dear Choukri,

Dear Choukri,

How have you been doing? Hope every thing is okay with you. I hope you had a safe arrival back home. It was really a pleasure for me to meet a beautiful Djiboutian lady who made me feel at home though there was a language barrier and no sufficient time to chat personal matters. Back home, I have been damn busy. That is why I didn't email you earlier as I intended. By the way, did you get the Forum's documents? If not, let me know and I'll email you including photos taken by the IISD team. I hope this will be our first, not last correspondence. Pleased do stay in touch!

Cheers and best wishes, Tewodros

I was able to confirm most of the phrase but please seek a second opinion. Stephen, are you there? What do you think? --Anatoli 05:52, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
I think I would use الله ملجإي، ليبارك الله عائلتي وثروتي (with no final punctuation) —Stephen (Talk) 06:33, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
(corrected) This would be allāh malja'i, li-yubaarik allāh 3aa'ilati wa-'tharwati. What's the meaning of لي in ليبارك? I've seen it used but don't understand it, although the phrase "God bless you" is just بارك الله فيك. --Anatoli 11:30, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
ليبارك is the jussive mood = may he bless. It forms the imperative for the 1st-person and 3rd-person, as well as the negative imperative for the 2nd-person. اُكتُبْ = write!; لِيَكتُبْ = let him write! لا تَكتُبْ = do not write; لا يَكتُبْ = let him not write. As the positive imperative, the jussive always takes the prefix لِ. After و and ف, the ل loses its vowel: وَلْيَكتُبْ = and let him write. —Stephen (Talk) 12:15, 10 November 2011 (UTC)
Great, thank you for the detailed explanation. Fixing my romanisation above. ليبارك is prounounced li-yubaarik (form II verb), not libaarak. --Anatoli 12:47, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

She doesn't know the romaji; I have a sketch of it here but I don't really know enough about stroke indices to look it up.

光栄 refers more to the thing that is bringing the honor, rather than the person being so honored. As such, it's a bit awkward using 光栄 without knowing more about the context of the phrase here. Using a more generic construction to get around this, we might have:
Taihen kōei de ari, kandō shite imasu.
[Whatever it is] is a great honor, and I am touched / moved.

Mr Y: Wow! Not too much longer, hey? I'll be there in a month.. are you really gonna go do language research again??
Mr X: Yeah.. but I haven't got a room yet.. you said your boyfriend is coming the end of the year?
Mr Y: He's become a little busy at work so we'll see... Wow.. are you going for a rehearsal? Well then, when'll you go to France again?
MR X: Umm.. so you will be in France January 11th?? When you're away, I'm going to France...hahaha
MR Y: That's pretty quick for when you're coming back, ain't it? Barely get to know each other... haha.. I'm not for sure what all my plans'll be..If you come to Paris we could up perhaps.. I'll leave on the 20th.
This is not really a dialogue for beginner... so I would say learn some easier phrases first, bud.

私は誰を信用していない (watashi wa dare o shin'yō shite inai) —Stephen (Talk) 07:45, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
Minor fix -- swap the を (o) for も (mo) to say "anybody":
私は誰も信用していない (watashi wa dare mo shin'yō shite inai) -- Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 17:35, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
If you want to sound like a tough guy you might want to use (ore) instead of watashi. Fugyoo 23:00, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
This brings up a good, though sticky, point -- Japanese is very dependent on social context. Examples of different forms:
  • 私は誰も信用していません (watashi wa dare mo shin'yō shite imasen) -- you're either gender, and saying this to someone like your boss or a relative stranger
  • あたしは誰も信用していませんわ (atashi wa dare mo shin'yō shite imasen wa) -- you're female, and saying this to a close friend or family member, and you're emphatic about it
  • 俺は誰も信用していないんだよ (dare mo shin'yō shite inai n da yo) -- you're male, and saying this to a close friend or family member, and you're emphatic about it
  • 誰も信用していないのね (dare mo shin'yō shite inai no ne) -- you're female, and saying this to a close friend or family member, and you're resigned about it or otherwise don't feel too upset about it
  • 誰も信用していないんだな (dare mo shin'yō shite inai n da na) -- you're male, and saying this to a close friend or family member, and you're resigned about it or otherwise don't feel too upset about it
Probably the safest, if somewhat lukewarm, version would be:
  • 誰も信用していません (dare mo shin'yō shite imasen)
This leaves out the personal pronoun (which is still perfectly grammatical in Japanese, and avoids the problem of choosing which gender- and context-specific pronoun to use), and uses the masen ending that is most neutral and least likely to offend, especially when coming from a foreigner (native Japanese speakers are usually willing to cut foreigners some slack when it comes to proper Japanese, so long as the word forms used are not too glaringly rude). -- HTH, Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 23:55, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

how would you write "Death becomes her" in ancient greek

What does not kill me makes me stronger.

You have been my brother

"Death becomes her" = ὁ θάνατος ἁρμόζει αὐτῇ. "What does not kill me makes me stronger" = ὅ τι οὐ ἀποκτείνει με, κρατύνει με. "You have been my brother" is difficult to translate without knowing what the speaker means by that. If he's speaking to his literal brother, why "have been" and not "are"? If his brother is dead, why "have been" and not "were"? If he's talking to a friend and means "You have been like a brother to me", then maybe the best thing to say is ἠδέλφικά σε, literally "I have adopted you as a brother" or "I have called you brother". —Angr 22:37, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Literal translation of "Fast is now beautiful" into various languages

Please literally translate "Fast is now beautiful" into the following languages:

  1. French: Maintenant, mon Internet va plus vite !
  2. Hawaiian: ʻĀnō, nani kēia wikiwiki (get more opinions, because it is quite an odd thing to say)
    • Alternate: Ua nani ka wikiwiki (subsuming sense of "now" into perfective aspect particle ua)
  3. Japanese (Kanji and Latin transcription)
    速いことは美しい (hayai koto wa utsukushii) Haplology 14:37, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
  4. Korean: 빠른 것은 아름다운 (ppareun geoseun areumdaun)
  5. Thai: ความเร็วเป็นสิ่งที่สวยงาม (kwaam reo pen sĭng têe sŭay ngaam)
  6. Spanish: La velocidad nunca fue tan bella
  7. Turkish: Şimdi hızı güzel
  8. Traditional and Simplified Chinese (with Latin transcriptions)
    (kuài jí shì měi) (both traditional and simplified). --Anatoli 22:52, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
  9. Latin: Celeritas nunc pulchra est
This is difficult to translate literally into many languages, because fast is an adjective, not a noun, and so cannot actually function as the subject of a sentence. English lets you play around some with your parts of speech, but other languages don't. In fact, in many languages, if you use an adjective as a noun it's interpreted as meaning "a person/thing who is X". For example, in Latin, if I say Celer nunc pulcher est it would mean "The fast man is now beautiful". You have to say Celeritas nunc pulchra est, literally "Speed is now beautiful". I see that whoever translated the slogan into French did not translate it literally, but wrote "Now my Internet is faster!". —Angr 15:19, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
On that note, I cheated and moved "now" to the front. I checked it with a native speaker who said it was OK but actually recommended dropping ima ("now") altogether. Using koto nominalizes "fast" and makes it OK to use an adjective as the subject, but that's just Japanese. Haplology 15:32, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
I'm puzzled -- why is the request for a literal translation? As Angr notes, some things just don't translate literally. And even if something like a literal translation is possible, the rendered text may well come across quite differently. Literal translations rarely make for good product descriptions or marketing material. For that matter, the English source text here has shades of meaning that go beyond any literal interpretation, especially once we know the context of having to do with Internet Explorer 9. (Incidentally, why was that quite salient fact hidden in the wikicode instead of being explicitly mentioned?)
If you're looking for ad copy, for instance, an alternate Japanese rendering might be 高速度は、もういかがですが? (Kōsokudo wa, mō ikaga desu ka?), which is more like a polite suggestion of wouldn't you like high speed already? (trust me, this English sounds odder than the Japanese) rather than literally "fast is now beautiful", but it comes across as more the kind of thing a Japanese speaker might expect for a product pitch. When it comes to anything in marketing, you're much better off getting a localization, which incorporates target cultural expectations, than any literal translation that just gives you a word-to-word (or phrase-to-phrase) transformation. -- Curious, Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 17:13, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
NB: The French seems to be Microsoft's own ad copy: google:"internet+explorer+9"+"Maintenant,+mon+Internet+va+plus+vite"
And, FWIW, Haplogy's Japanese looks fine by me -- I gave my alternate solely as an illustration of how different localization can be from literal translation. -- Cheers, Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 17:24, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
Russian translation wasn't sought but this is how this slogan can be translated into Russian: быстро (bystro) () это (eto) уже (uže) красиво (krasivo) (býstro - éto užé krasívo). --Anatoli 22:59, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Translate 'nothing' to hebrew

Translate 'nothing' to hebrew—This comment was unsigned.

In Modern Hebrew, you typically use a negative word plus a word for "anything". The latter can be שום דבר‎. The negative word will often not be adjacent to the word for "anything", depending on the sentence.​—msh210 (talk) 21:42, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Gustamos? You sure? See [[gustar#Usage notes]].​—msh210 (talk) 21:39, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
Some English speakers use 'love' very flippantly. If 'all of these things' were to refer to e.g. popcorn, the Harry Potter movies, and snow days, gustar might be more appropriate. Unless amar is in fact correct in which case lordy I don't even want to know — lexicógrafa | háblame — 21:47, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
That wasn't the point lol, gustar isn't used in the same way. It'd be nos gusta(n). Gostamos would be right in Portuguese, but not in Spanish.
Anyway, if it were me, I'd translate it as "Nos gusta todo" (we like it all), or "nos gustan todos estos" (we like all these) .— [Ric Laurent] — 22:18, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

"Nos gusta todo" is good, but it’s more like "we like it all." For "we love it all," I would use "nos encanta todo". But it sort of depends on what "it" means: foods, customs, travel destinations, or what. —Stephen (Talk) 06:53, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Would you mind first translating that into English? It's a bit difficult to translate something when the meaning of the source text isn't clear.

"stand and be true" in japanese kanji

Hello stranger. There is a phrase from Stephen King's "Dark Tower Series" that has a particular resonance with me and my belief system. "Stand and be true". I would like to tattoo this somewhere on my body to remind me to do just that. I have always felt the japanese kanji to be a very eloquent medium of expressing language and would very much like to find if there are symbols that express this phrase with the meaning that it holds in the series of books. I hope that there is one symbol for "stand" and a separate one for "be true" so that I may have one symbol tattooed on each of my forearms. If there is any way you can facilitate this desire, i would be eternally grateful.

I do not know anything about "Dark Tower" or this phrase, but Japanese is going to need multiple characters. Japanese might be something like あなたの足の上に立つ (anata no ashi no ue ni tatsu) on one arm, and 真実にコミットする (shinjitsu ni komitto suru) on the other. Maybe something shorter like 騰貴 (Tōki, rising) and 真実 (Shinjitsu, truth). I’m sure there are better choices than these though. —Stephen (Talk) 11:27, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
At the risk of being pedantic, it's important to point out that kanji are only part of how Japanese is written. These are used for most nouns, and for the roots of most verbs, with the verb endings (like the "-ing" in "dancing" in English) spelled using hiragana, or more rarely in modern Japanese, katakana. Kanji are essentially Chinese characters (called hanzi in Chinese), and therefore can mostly be read to some extent by anyone who can read Chinese (only "mostly" since some characters are Japanese-only, and since some meanings have changed over time).
That said, there are multiple possible translations here depending on the senses meant.
  • Stand could just mean "to stand up, to stand on one's feet", in which case 立つ (tatsu) or more appropriately the -te form 立って (tatte) might work. Given what I remember of The Gunslinger, the first book in the series, this alone probably won't get the right meaning across -- I don't think 立って on its own carries the same senses of confidence, resolution, and resistance as implied by King's use here. Instead, I'd use 立ち向かう (tachimukau, to confront, to stand up to, to face a challenge or opponent), either in the -te form 立ち向かって (tachimukatte) or the rougher and more direct command form 立ち向かえ (tachimukae).
  • For be true, King's intended meaning in the context of the books is probably more like have integrity than be faithful or be genuine, in which case I'd use 誠実に (seijitsu ni). (NB: the 誠実 entry here at Wiktionary needs reworking, and doesn't currently convey the range of meanings for this term.)
So: 立ち向かえ、誠実に (tachimukae, seijitsu ni). -- HTH, Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 04:05, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

Shouldn't it be: "amat toto corde sua" (her heart, not his)? —AugPi 15:35, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
No, "suo" is correct: "First, like any adjective, suus, -a, -um, must agree with the noun it modifies in number, gender, and case." according to Wheelock. However, in the Latin translation, the fact that the one loving is a 'her' is missing. This could be filled in (if desired) by saying: "Ea amat (cum) toto corde suo." —AugPi 15:48, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
The gender agreement is with the thing possessed, not the possessor. Cor is neuter, and suo is ablative neuter singular. It means with his/her/its/their heart. —Stephen (Talk) 15:48, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

This Google search (google:abtiaf resi setur) pops up a number of hits in what I think is Czech, where someone else seems to be asking the same thing. No one's answered, as best I can tell. FWIW, that last word looks like "Setul" to me; comparing against the Fraktur font sample image on the lower right of the w:Blackletter page, I can't see how that last letter could be an "r", but a slightly goofy lower-case "L" might fit. And since none of what look like "i" letters have the tittle, I tried searching using the dotless Turkish "ı" just to see, but I didn't find anything promising.

From English to Khmer script / English to Old Khmer

Could you please translate for me these names to khmer script and to old khmer script AMEER (Amir) AMNAY Is it possible to write a name vertically ?

Can’t do Old Khmer.
Ameer = អាមៀរ៍
Amnay = អាម្នៃ
I don’t think it looks good to write it vertically. If you do, you get (for example):
(1) អា
(2) មៀ
(3) រ៍
On line (1), the vowel cannot be separated from the consonant. On line (2), the vowel surrounds the consonant (the consonant M has part of the vowel i in front, the rest in back. On line (3), it is an R, but it is silent. It just doesn’t work if you try to stack it vertically. —Stephen (Talk) 06:24, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

The phrase was something along the lines of... "May the Light protect us." or "Let the Light shield us."

If it was Greek, it could have been Μπορεί το φως να μας προστατεύσει or Μπορεί το φως να είναι ασπίδα μας. If Latin, then perhaps Lumen ergo protegat nos or Sit lux scutum nostrum. —Stephen (Talk) 04:13, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

I'd be happy to do the Japanese, except I'm not sure I understand your English -- am I correct in assuming that "lie to me" is one sentence, and "dead to me" is a separate one? If so:
  1. lie to me:
    • 私を騙してください (watashi o damashite kudasai): sounds kind of formal, gender-neutral; damashite is literally "deceive" or "fool someone", but this could fit the mood just fine
    • 騙して (damashite): informal and gender-neutral, but this relies the most on context to make it clear who is deceiving whom
    • 騙してくれ (damashite kure): quite informal, and the speaker is male
    • 嘘ついて (uso tsuite): informal and gender-neutral, also quite context-dependent; more literally like "tell me a lie"
  2. dead to me:
    • 自分にとってもう死んでいる (jibun ni totte mō shinde iru): "as far as I'm concerned, [they are // he / she / it is] already dead."
    • 死んだも同然だ (shinda mo dōzen da): "[they are // he / she / it is] as good as dead"
If these are intended to be song lyrics or poetic or something, you really should sit down with a native speaker. Japanese and English are wildly different languages and things that are short and pithy in one can be long and convoluted in the other. -- Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 00:45, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

-- Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 00:45, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

I understand it as, "If you lie to me, you are dead to me". Maybe something like:
私をだますなら、私に死んでいる (watashi o damasunara, watashi ni shinde iru)
Latin: Si mentiri me, tunc mortuus es mihi —Stephen (Talk) 07:38, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
For this interpretation, the Japanese would be:

name de - what does this word mean?

name de

In what language? Can you link to/copy out the original source text? Mglovesfun (talk) 11:35, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
If it’s Dutch, it could be translated as particular:
Dit artikel behandelt met name de taal.
This article deals with the particular language. —Stephen (Talk) 11:51, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
No that's not quite correct. met name is a fixed phrase, 'de' is just the definite article. So it would be translated as: This article considers/deals with, in particular, the language. —CodeCat 20:13, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

I'm doing some research into my Lenape history for a tattoo that I would like to create. I want to know what "Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself" would translate into in Unami, the Lenape language. Thanks!

Tomorrow is alappa and take care of is genachgiton, but proverbs are difficult and never straightforward. How about something that is not so hard. What about this:
Tëtantahkukwehëliewakàn (shake of the head). Could also be spelled like this: Tatandachgoqueheliewagan. —Stephen (Talk) 01:40, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Translate into khmer

I want to get a tattoo to remember my experiences in cambodia. Pleas can you help me to translate "happy soul" in khmer script. I already asked friends from cambodia but i need a second opinion just to be on the safe side...

Do you have an idea how to get it written in nice letters, because copy and paste doesn't look that nice on my skin i guess ;)

What translation did your friends from Cambodia give you? There are many ways to say something like that.
I don’t know anything about tattooing. I suppose that if the artist has a computer and printer, you can copy the phrase to a CD, along with the Cambodian font that you prefer (if you don’t like the fonts that the artist has). I imagine that the tattoo artist then prints it out as a decal which he uses as a guide. But I’m guessing, I’ve never been in a tattoo parlour. —Stephen (Talk) 00:10, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

I know it's quite a long time ago now, but thanks for your answer :) My friend from Cambodia gave me this translation: proling sabbay (I can't type in Khmer on my Computer I just have it as a picture, but this is the way they would say it) Do you think this is an appropriate translation? Thanks a lot Tanja

Hagakure quote translation: English to Japanese(Kanji)

"One should make his decisions within the space of seven breaths...With an intense, fresh and undelaying spirit, one will make his judgments within the space of seven breaths. It is a matter of being determined and having the spirit to break right through to the other side."


This needs some work, but here is a rough draft. It is only a translation, not the original quote. Someone can make it better.

how do i write "Love It" and "Eat It" in latin? this may seem like an odd request but its genuine :)

Ama id and Ede id. If the "it" is clear enough from context, you may omit the id in both cases, and just write Ama and Ede. If you're addressing two or more people, it's Amate id and Edete id (again, you can delete the id if it's clear from context). —Angr 23:24, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
