Hebrew or Arabic translation for tattoo

Hebrew or Arabic translation for tattoo of the words "Live life without regret" (request unsigned by

Arabic: عيش حياتك دون أسف ‎(3iish Hiyaatak duuna 'asaf) (change to Hiyaatik if you speak to a female but live as is as a general statement or when speaking to a man) (Words used: عاش to live, حياة life, دون without, أسف regret.

english to Irish(celtic).

one love

believe in love

trust God

only God can judge me

have faith

translate the phrases: believe in love, only god can judge me, trust, have faith, faith, love to hebrew.

love of my life

Latin help please

How do you translate:

Propter periculum sacra deorum ad portam portabamus, et Anchisae dabamus.

I make that out as (roughly): "Because of the risk, we were carrying [sacra] of god toward the gate and giving (it) to Anchisae (the father of Aeneas)." I'm not quite sure how best to translate the word "sacra", but it means "holy things" or maybe "relics"? We had this very same question in 2006. --EncycloPetey 19:41, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Translate a song from english to hawaiian...

I need to translate this song into hawaiian again, Translated it to english to have a friend help add lines so...

Listen to me Small rose, come Come here to me

If I could I would, gentle moon Oh, gentle moon. Let me be.

Here I am Calling to you, listen to me It is exciting

Sweet sound, lift me up Breathe me in.

The sound Of your fearless voice, two of us lost in the mist O my beloved

I shall clear the way, Sailing forward on a Endless sea.

Tell the refrain Of you and I Lost in desire

Never let it end, Our vermillion hearts. Beating as one.

English to Dari

I am alergic to bread.

I am alergic to penicillin.

how do you say these two sentences in Dari. Thank you.

english to hebrew or aramaic

1) "carpe diem" 2) "strength"

It's for a tattoo, though some other ideas i had were:

3) "only God can judge me" 4) "notw" I'm trying to find as many options as there can be, in VARIOUS languages.


1) "carpe diem" = "תפוס את היום" or "אכול ושתו כי מחר נמות" or "קרפה דיאם"...since it's Latin we can just use transliteration into Hebrew characters of the same phrase
2) "strength" = "כוח" or "עוצמה"
3) "only God can judge me" = "יש אלוקים בשמים" means "there is God in the sky"
4) I don't understand what notw it means
notw = "Not Of This World". Something that some Christians like to say. —Stephen 14:54, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi, please, can someone tell me what is заплепку in the following sentence and what is its singular uninflected form? Thanks.

— Треснуло копыто! Это ничего. Я вас научу, покажу, заплепку какую положить. (unsigned by User:Rosswood40)

A small correction: Треснуло копыто! Это ничего. Я вас научу, покажу, заклепку какую положить.
singular uninflected form - заклёпка f (ё is usually written as е) - rivet, the letter "ё" is stressed in most cases.
Happy reading! English: "The hoof's cracked! That's nothing. I'll teach you what to do and show you what kind of rivet to use." L. Tolstoy, War and peace. Read this part online: [1]
Please sign your requests with four tildes (~)
