English to Farsi - alphabet and pronounciation ASAP

I'm hoping to have "this too shall pass" translated into English, as well as the Farsi alphabet. I'm hoping to have it tattooed on me, so I want to know how to pronounce it, as well as be certain it's the correct translation. I've done some research and come up with a couple of different results. Therefore, a breakdown of what the characters represent would be much appreciated. Thanks so much!

Origin Ritu is a season in the Hindu calendar and there are six ritus or Indian seasons. The word is derived from the Vedic Sanskrit word Ruru a fixed or appointed time especially the proper time for sacrifice(yajna) or rituall in vedic religion. This in turn comes from the word Ritu as used in vedic Sanskrit literally means the “order or course of things” In Sanskrit Vasanta means spring and Panchami is the fifth day of the fortnight of waxing moon(Shukla Paksha) in the Hindu month of Magh, January- February of English calendar.

In Ferozepur(Punjab, India) Vasant is celebrated as most auspicious festival than any other. People from all over India gathered here to feel the purity of this spring season. Vasant Panchami has its own joy and pleasure. Every year Kite festival is celcebrated in many states of India. But the border city(Ferozepur) marks the occasion on huge level of its seasonal significance.

Basant Ritu: This season is commonly known as spring season in common language. In this season, breeze flows from south to north direction. Sun is not having intense heat. Hence sun appears in reddish colour. New leaves originate from trees. Old bark of trees gets replaced by new one. Environment is clear and non dusty. Flowers blossom on trees and there is fragrance in environment. In this ritu, shlesham (mucous) which had got accumulated in winter season melts off due to initiation of increase in temperature. According to modern day calendar it falls in the season of March and April.

Grishma Ritu: This season in commonly known as summer season. In Indian calendar it is Jyestha- ashadha. Sun is hot and penetrating, sun heat is maximum, environment is hot and sky remains clear.Win is in direct North West direction. Air is dry, light, hot, unpleasant day. Moonlight is pleasant. Atmosphere is bright and hot. Land becomes hot and dry especially during day time. Water becomes hot and light very little water in rivers. Ritu is a Division of the year reflecting the change of seasons. The concept of ritu occurs in Rigveda also, where only three ritus are, mentioned. Hemant ritu comes after winterI.e in January till mid march. With the extreme cold, hail and snow of winter left behind hemant ritu represents the spring of India. A variety of new blooming flowers in the clear morning sun welcome us to a symphony of colours.

Varsha, Shishira corresponds to winter season in India i.e around December and January. This is the time when colour of leaves change. This change is captured here in the leaf which is at one time green, then red followed by light brown and finally brown. Toward the end of the shishir season flowers begin to bloom.

I want to get the Robert Frost Poem 'Fire & Ice' tattooed.

This may be a lot to ask, but I was hoping that someone could translate it into Aramaic, Latin and Greek for me?

The poem is;

"Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice".

Kind regards,


Poems and songs do not translate very well between languages. What sounds great in English will sound terrible when translated into another language. It won’t rhyme, the meter will be completely off, the number of syllables and words will be different. Even so, nobody would attempt to translate a poem like that for free. It would cost quite a lot and the result would probably not be very nice. —Stephen (Talk) 17:21, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

English to Bangali

Hi! Im looking to have a portion of a Mother Teresa poem translated into bengali. It goes as follows:

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God; It was never between you and them anyway.

If anyone could help me I'd really appreciate it! :)

Poems do not translate well from one language to another. Don’t expect much.
আপনি কি কাটাতে বছর বিল্ড, কেউ রাতারাতি ধ্বংস পারে; তবুও বিল্ড.
আপনি যদি প্রশান্তি ও সুখ পেতে, তারা কুচুটে হতে পারে; সুখী তাহলেও হবে.
ভাল ক্রিয়াকাণ্ড যে আপনি আজকের করবেন, প্রায়ই এটা আগামীকাল ভুলে হবে; ভাল ক্রিয়াকাণ্ড তবুও করবেন.
ভাল যে আপনি দিতে বিশ্ব, এবং এটা যথেষ্ট হতে না পারে; ভাল যে আপনি দিতে বিশ্বের সকল অবস্থাতেই.
চূড়ান্ত বিশ্লেষণ এ তাই, এটা আপনি এবং আপনার ঈশ্বরের মধ্যে একটি ব্যাপার;
এটা কখনও ছিল আপনি তাদের মধ্যে না. —Stephen (Talk) 11:09, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Here is the complete poem I came across several months ago. Do It Anyway

"People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."


'তবুও নাহয় করুন'

"মানুষ অনেকসময়ই অযৌক্তিক, বিচারবুদ্ধিহীন এবং আত্ম কেন্দ্রিক আচরণ করে। যাই হোক না কেন, ওদেরকে নাহয় ক্ষমা করে দেন।

"আপনি দয়ালু হলে মানুষ বলতে পারে আপনি আসলে কোন স্বার্থপর গোপন অভিলাষে অমন ভাব দেখাচ্ছেন। তারপরও নাহয় দয়া বর্ষণ করে যান।

  1. This assumes that the speaker is female (or at least feminine). For a male / masculine speaker, swap the anata for kimi, and the watashi for boku (somewhat informal) or ore (more informal / intimate).

i have a tattoo with a cross that says forever blessed and love on it in english but also has boog,por,verdi in a language i dont know. need to know what they mean please. was told they all meant love in several different languages.

You need to look more carefully. You probably have copied something incorrectly. In any case, "boog, por, verdi" doesn’t mean love in any language. boog means arc in Dutch and Afrikaans. por means by in several languages such as Spanish and Portuguese. Verdi looks like an Italian name. It could means "arc by Verdi", except it should all be in the same language (like "boog van Verdi"). —Stephen (Talk) 14:18, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
verdi is also "green" in Italian, right? Verdi is also "he gave" (or she gave, or it gave) in Turkish. — [Ric Laurent] — 14:31, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
boog means bow or arc in Dutch, but I think it's just an alias of an artist: --Pereant antiburchius (talk) 15:10, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Second, the translation to did for me above is being put in my sleeve tattoo. So i need to get it spot on. Can i ask if the phrase would have the comma in or would it just be wrote as "Universi omnes habemus"



No, I don’t think any comma is required. If it’s going to be a tattoo, you should get at least a second opinion or two before doing it. I think it’s good, but there are lot of people who know Latin better than I do. —Stephen (Talk) 08:35, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

We are trying to come up with a hawaiian name for a group of friends who are all gay, and fans of 1950's tiki culture. Something along the line of gay tribe or family. It's easy to find the word for tribe (lahui) and family ('ohana), but the gay part is a bit of a challenge. Some of the words we have discovered would include "aikane", "hau'oli", "'oli'oli" and "mahu", but we're not sure if these words are nouns or adjectives, or if they might be offensive, clinical, or just completely off the mark. The next question would be if the adjective is placed before noun (mahu lahui) or noun before adjective (lahui mahu) in the Hawaiian language. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

The adjective follows the noun. lāhui can be a noun or adjective. ʻohana can be a noun or adjective. aikāne is a noun or an adjective that means friendly, but it also refers to people in a same-sex relationship. It’s a good word to use. Maybe ka hale aikāne (the house of friends). He aikāne, he pūnana na ke onaona (a friend is a haven of loveliness). hauʻoli is a noun or adjective that means happy, happiness, gay (but in the sense of happy, merry). ʻoliʻoli means joy, as in ʻEha malakia ka ʻili i ka ʻoliʻoli (the skin is sore with joy). māhū is a noun that means a homosexual of either sex. None of them are offensive. —Stephen (Talk) 01:48, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Black is the colour of my true love's hair, His lips are like some roses fair, he's the sweetest smile, And the gentlest hands, I love the ground, Whereon he stands. I love my love and well he knows, I love the ground, whereon he goes, I wish the day, it soon would come, When he & I could be as one. Black is the colour of my true love's hair, His lips are like some roses fair, he's the sweetest smile, And the gentlest hands, I love the ground, Whereon he stands. I go to the Clyde and I mourn and weep, For satisfied, I ne'er can be, I write him a letter, just a few short lines, And suffer death, a thousand times. Black is the colour of my true love's hair, His lips are like some roses fair, he's the sweetest smile, And the gentlest hands, I love the ground, Whereon he stands.

English to Latin - Serenity Prayer

Hi there,

I was hoping you would be able to provide me with and acurate translation of The Serenity Prayer in Latin. I would like to get it as a tattoo:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; 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; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.

Many thanks

The full paragraph is too long to mess with. The first sentence is:
Deus, mihi dona serenitatem ut accipiam res quas mutare non possum; virtutem ut mutem eas quas possum, et prudentiam ut discernam differentiam.
For a more Classical Latin sound, this would be better:
Concede nobis, Domine, serenitatem necessariam ea quae mutare non possumus accipiendi, fortitudinem ea quae possumus mutandi, sapientiam utrasque discernendi. —Stephen (Talk) 04:12, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Just go with "Erin go bragh". The meaning is very similar and it's much less likely that you or the tattoo artist will get it wrong. If you do want it more literal, then Éireannach go dtí mo bhás is better. Literally it's "Irish until my death", but in Irish it's more idiomatic to use nouns instead of verbs in constructions like this. —Angr 11:04, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

yes 'PARTH' is a name , a noun , and the other name of Arjuna.
and about 'PURVA' it is also a name , a noun , which means wind.

so this both are basically name and i want to have a tattoo of it so i wanted to know how wolud they be written in Hebrew correctly

thnk you...reply soon

It seems like Devanagari would be better than Hebrew, but if you want Hebrew, then:
Parth = פרט
Purva = פורבה
I can’t find these in any dictionary, so they are my best guess. —Stephen (Talk) 08:53, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

thanks a lot.. stephen.. i really appreciate you for helping me but i dont know any person in India who can help me i am relying on you i dont want my tattoo to go wrong it has my GF name in it. plz Sir give me confirm answer sir please.....

You might wait a while to see if someone else replies here with a different suggestion, but in my opinion, this should be good. But I can’t find any dictionary or article to confirm it. There is a city in Australia called Perth, which is פרת׳‎ (पर्थ). So I am not sure which is better, פרת׳‎ or פרט. Wait to see if anyone else replies. —Stephen (Talk) 11:20, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

I am aware of city named Perth, but my name is not pronounced like perth. पार्थ this is how my name is is. though abroad Paarth is used to pronounce my name properly but in India Parth is used. but i would prefer proper pronounciation in hebrew. So my name is पार्थ. And what about the name Purva ???? THNKS A TONS FOR TRYING TO HELP ME evrytim ....

I already put Purva up above. Hebrew usually does not write the vowels, so פרט is only PRT. If you write it with the vowel, then it is פארט. The question is the last consonant, TH. Hebrew has two t letters, ט and ת. My feeling is that ט is better for थ. It is also possible to write it ת׳‎, but that is for the sound of Greek θ (th). But as I said, I can’t find it in any dictionaries, so I’m not sure. —Stephen (Talk) 17:40, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

I am making an all together new request now Translate "Parth" & "Purva" in Doric greek with how to pronounce them also..... i hope you know my previous request in hebrew. Thank you.....

Doric was a dialect of Ancient Greek. I don’t think they were aware of these two names 2400 years ago. I would write them Πάρθ and Πούρβα (or Πούρϝα in Early Doric). —Stephen (Talk) 14:16, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
Πάρθ (/partʰ/)
Πούρβα (/púrba/, /ˈpurva/, the letter β gradually shifted from /b/ to /v/ between 400 BC and 200 AD)
Πούρϝα (/púrwa/) —Stephen (Talk) 14:16, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

thanks a lot Stephen :: I asked one of the experts , she said, that you cannot translate it in Doric Greek at all...!! y did she said that, whereas you framed it ???????? Thanks for helping i can now continue with my tattoo.... :) and i also want you to translate " Vishwaa " which is also a noun, name of a person ..which means world. thankss :D

The spoken dialect cannot be distinguished in the written form. Doric Greek, Byzantine Greek, Ancient Greek, they would all write it like that, except for the letter ϝ, which disappeared from the language more than 2000 years ago. Vishwaa is more difficult because Greek does not have those consonants. Modern Greek has a V for the last 2000 years, but not much before that. The W can be made with an U sound. But no period or dialect had an SH sound. The best I can do is this:
Βισουά (/biswá/), or in Modern Greek (/viswá/) —Stephen (Talk) 10:36, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

thanks stephen d last name is correct but my freind my friends are tellin wen translated on google it shows erroe for name parth" "purva" y is it so ??????????

i am tensed help me...:(

I don’t understand what you mean. What did they try to translate? From what language into what language? What do they mean by "error"? If you try to translate parth and purva using google translate, from English into Greek, it will not translate it. That is because parth and purva are not recognized as English words, and also not as Greek words, so Google does not know what to do with them. But if you try to translate Parth and Purva into Hindi, you will get पार्थ and पूर्वा, because they are recognized as Hindi words. It’s logical. But you must be more clear for me, from what language into what language, and what do they mean by "error"? —Stephen (Talk) 21:30, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Emily Dickinson Poem to Arabic and/or Thai

Hi, I am a seventh grade English teacher, and I have two ESL students in my class, one who speaks Arabic and one who speaks Thai. I want the students to partake in some literary analysis, without their language limitations interfering. I was wondering if anyone might be able to translate the following Emily Dickinson poem into either Arabic or Thai, so that they could read the poems in their native languages. It does not need to be a poetic translation- a literal translation will do, but I am distrustful of online translators and would prefer to be able to provide a more accurate translation.

Thank you!

Here's the poem:

Will there really be a morning? Is there such a thing as day? Could I see it from the mountains If I were as tall as they?

Has it feet like water-lilies? Has it feathers like a bird? Is it brought from famous countries Of which I have never heard?

Oh, some scholar! Oh, some sailor! Oh, some wise man from the skies! Please to tell a little pilgrim Where the place called morning lies!

هل هناك حقا شيء من هذا القبيل كما الصباح؟
هل هناك شيء من هذا القبيل كما اليوم؟
أستطيع أن أرى أنه من الجبال
إذا أنا طويل القامة مثل لهم؟
لا توجد لديها مثل قدم على زنبق الماء؟
لا توجد لديها مثل الريش على الطيور؟
يتم إحضارها من دول الشهيرة
التي لم يسبق لي أن سمعت عنهم؟
يا العالِم! يا بحار!

It is Swahili or a Bantu language related to Swahili. It is misspelled, or you have not copied it faithfully, so I can’t read it. Uonal can’t be right. The parts that seem to be spelled correctly say something like: _ _ speakers also say this. —Stephen (Talk) 01:51, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Dude, you're asking for like a half-hour's translation work here for free. Short of going through the whole thing for you, what you've got there is a letter from Ælfthryth, wife of Edgar to Ælfric of Abingdon about a land dispute over the estate of Taunton in (now) Somerset. She says her husband gave up his rights to the land in accordance with the bishop's wishes, and ordered his thegns to do the same. There follow some details about a claimant in the land dispute called Leofric. That's as much as you're getting right now, perhaps someone else can be bothered to do a word-for-word translation. Ƿidsiþ 17:17, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
    Also, most Old English literature already has published translations. If you snoop around some on the Net, you can probably find an existing translation of the letter from Ælfthryth to Ælfric. Here, for example, is a translation up to "mid mannum eal swa hit stode". —Angr 17:26, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

English to LATIN

Could you please translate "some legends are written in blood" to Latin. Thanks, you guys are great!

Aliquae fabulae scriptae sunt in sanguinem. —Stephen (Talk) 17:28, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
That is in the perfect tense; I think a more literal translation would be in the present tense like the English original, thus Aliquae fabulae scribuntur in sanguinem. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 23:53, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
Also in sanguinem means "into blood". When we say "written in blood" we really mean "written with blood", so I would use the bare ablative in Latin: Aliquae fabulae scribuntur sanguine. —Angr 20:53, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
Well, I didn't notice that, and I agree the ablative is more appropriate, but such a bare ablative must be interpreted as the ablative of means. Instead, I would argue that, in terms of Latin grammar, it is written by means of a pen, but written in blood. Thus I would say, with wording altered to give a slightly more classical feel: Aliquae fabulae in sanguine scribuntur. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:49, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Yiddish I guess, since Hebrew is already up there. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:09, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
In Latin, tree of life would literally be arbor vitae (as opposed to lignum (wood)). My Hebrew grammar is awful, but I think עץ חיים would be better (maybe it's a biblical thing, but it just sounds right). --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 23:33, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
If by "Greek" the OP meant Ancient Greek rather than Modern Greek, it's δένδρον (déndron) τῆς (tês) ζωῆς (zōês) /déndron tɛ̂ːs zɔːɛ̂ːs/. —Angr 06:01, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
BTW, Latin lignum was probably pronounced /ˈlɪŋnʊm/ rather than /ˈliːɡnʊm/. —Angr 07:32, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

English to Farsi (Poetic)

I want to get "Nothing is true, all is permitted" in Farsi. "True" in the sense that it is being used here, doesn't refer to generic truth (like true false) but the kind of truth which there is no way to view from other angles, or to perceive in a different way. "Nothing is true, all is permitted" might mean "Nothing is indisputable, all perceptions are valid"... however, I want it to clearly say "Nothing is true, all is permitted", I just want to make sure that the usage of the words conveys my perception of it rather than just the surface meanings of the words.


Also, I'd like, if possible, to have a pronunciation guide for the Farsi, as well as an literal translation of each part of the sentence so I know what each word means individually.

Not sure I understand all of that very well. This is how I would write it. Get other opinions to see if it is what you wanted.
هیچ‌چیز درست نیست، همه‌چیز مجاز است (hich-chiz dorost nist, hame-chiz mojāz ast = no-thing correct/true is-not, all-thing allowed is) —Stephen (Talk) 06:31, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
Or: هیچ‌چیز حق نیست، همه‌چیز جایز است (hich chiz haq nist, hame chiz jâyez ast) (that مجاز should be transliterated as mojâz, majâz has a different meaning) --Z 12:14, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
I thought the first translation originally had a space between
هیچ چیز and همه چیز
and I notice that there's no space in the second translation between those words either. Is that more correct than with spaces?
With that 2nd bit of Farsi up above... is there any correct way to have it so that rather than saying 'every thing' it just said 'all'? I know 'all' isn't a noun, but is there a way have it use 'all' and still make sense (and by make sense I mean something that is clear and effective as opposed to being something you could understand but looked like very poorly spoken Farsi)
درست seems best for 'true', but if people want to suggest other words that also mean true, I'd be happy to check them out. That word seems to convey a lot of different meanings of the word true though, so it looks like the winner. Mostly I'm looking for 'true' to be the kind of truth that is indisputable, unquestionable, and unchanging.
Thanks for the help so far.
A lot of people put the space in words such as همه چیز because if you remove the space, the two letters automatically connect: همهچیز. If you don’t put the space (and you should not put the space), then you have to use an invisible no-connect letter: همه‌چیز. Of course, when it is written by hand, nobody puts a space there. The space is only a bad shortcut used in typing.
If you leave out the "thing" and just say "all", then it means "everybody" (but you’d also need to use a different verb for that). —Stephen (Talk) 02:15, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
Some other words that mean true are: اصل‎, حقیقت‎, اصل عمومی‎, بدیهیات‎, اصل موضوعه‎, حقیقت اشکار‎, حقیقت متعارفه‎, واقعی‎, صحیح‎, راستین‎, راست‎, ثابت‎, راستگو‎, فریور‎.

english to cherokee


When the land darkens I close my eyes
and dream of a world of my own making
Visions of druids, stars,
trees that whisper ancient secrets

I dream into existence a universe
without hatred,
where no one betrays me

In sun's warm light, I care about Cuba,
South Africa, Jemez Pueblo, Navajo,
Bosnia and Jay, Oklahoma
Some would say
not womanly things to care about

In sleep I refresh myself and dream
of a time when thunder spoke to me
the moon smiled on me and
told me I was one of them

Or maybe I will just listen to
the message of long ago
sent along the pathways of the wind

The wind will have stories to tell
and when I wake up
I won't really know whether I dreamed the stories or they are real
but then
I never could tell the difference anyway.

To paraphrase Stephen in the previous thread, we'll try to translate a word or a phrase for you, but not an entire poem. For that you would have to use a commercial translator, who will charge you money for the many hours of work required.

English to Egyptian Hieretics, help!!!

Hi, I would like to translate:

Love is forever, Death cannot part us.

from English (exactly as above)into Egyptian Hieratic. There is translation sites for Hieroglyphs everywhere but none for the Hieratics.

Any help much appreciated!

The hieratic script is structurally the same as the hieroglyphic, and Unicode treats hieratic script as a font variant of hieroglyphic. So if you can get the translation in hieroglyphics, and if you can obtain a hieratic font, then you should be able to output the hieratic translation with a simple font change. —Stephen (Talk) 00:30, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

No, mea means thing. Kai means sea, ocean. It’s hard to explain idioms. Since this is for a permanent tattoo, you should get the opinions of other people who speak Hawaiian. There are usually many ways to say something, and not every way is the best way. —Stephen (Talk) 06:19, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

I have one more question, last one! I really like the way "Kai ala mea nui e" sounds but would it be horrible to omit the "e" at the end, or is it truly needed. Thanx again!

Hmm, "Is breá liom thú" is more "I like you". There is no one usual way of saying "I love you" in Irish, and it's more common to say literally "You're my love" than "I love you". Some ways are Tusa mo ghrá and Tusa mo stór, but I'm not sure how to modify them to reflect the "deeply" of the English. You could add go deo to mean "forever", but that's not quite the same as it implies longevity rather than intensity. —Angr 19:51, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Can someone please translate the following verse into Samoan?

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.

And you know the way to the place where I am going.”


That's way too long. Sorry. Get a second opinion, but I would say that "believe in God" is "fa'atuatua 'i le Atua". I don't know of any non-ambiguous way to make an imperative, but you can use the pronoun of your choice to put in front of the statement; Samoan pronouns are here. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 18:23, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
My Samoan is very elementary but I found this in a Samoan translation of the bible:
"1Aua le atuatuvale o outou loto; ia outou faatuatua i le Atua, ia faatuatua mai foi ia te au. 2E tele mea e nonofo ai i le maota o lo'u Tamā; ana leai, po ua au fai atu ia te outou; ou te alu e sauni se mea e nonofo ai outou. 3Afai foi ou te alu ma sauni se mea e nonofo ai outou, ou te toe sau, ou te talia foi outou ia faatasi ma au, ina ia i ai outou i le mea ou te i ai au. 4Ua outou iloa le mea ou te alu i ai, ua outou iloa foi le ala." - Ioane 14:1-4 (John 14:1-4)

It appears to hail from the old tradition of "don't mark glottal stops or long vowels unless it would be extremely ambiguous otherwise". That makes it untrustworthy for pronunciation, but it looks good for content (it assumes "you" is plural, but otherwise seems to make no major assumptions not present in the English). --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 01:23, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Also it's not in so I'm guessing it's still perceived as a Russian word?
    Here's some photos of Australian ones. (I'm having trouble finding photos of European/Georgian/Indian ones.) 1, 2
  • tap water -- water from the tap/faucet at the kitchen sink etc, as opposed to bottled water. For instance what to ask for in a cafe or restaurant when you want water that you don't have to pay for (Georgian tapwater is very clean and tastes great). It could just be ონკანის წყალი (onḳanis c̣q̇ali) but I'm not positive.
  • athlete's foot, dermatophytosis, ringworm, tinea - the same fungal conditional that infects mainly between the toes of the feet has various names in English. How should I ask for powder/medication for this at a pharmacy in Georgia?

hippietrail (talk) 10:39, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

In Russian, a double adapter is двухместный адаптер, which would translate literally into Georgian as ორმაგი ადაპტერი (ormagi adaṗṭeri). I’m not familiar with the word ტრაინიკი, so I can’t help with that. But I think that ორმაგი ადაპტერი (ormagi adaṗṭeri) should be an understandable translation, even if it isn’t the standard term. Or better yet, ორმაგი ელექტრო ადაპტერი (double power adapter) or ორმაგი ელექტროენერგიის ადაპტერი (double electrical adapter).
As for tapwater, I’m not sure either. ონკანის წყალი (onḳanis c̣q̇ali) seems like an understandable choice, it means "faucet water".
Ringworm (tinea) is მკრეჭი სირსველი. Dermatophytosis is ტერფის დერმატოფიტია, and athlete's foot is ათლეტის ტერფი. Some medications that you could ask for are: ტერბონილი ტაბლეტები (made in Turkey) and ლამიზილ უნო (same thing, but from Switzerland), or მუსიტროლი (made in Georgia). Also, ტერბონილი კანის სპრეი 1% (spray), and ტერბიზილი კრემი (from Hungary), —Stephen (Talk) 21:12, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the help! I ended up with "нітрофунгін нео" from Ukraine, whose directions I'm trying to type into Google Translate, and "ЛИНЕКС капсулы" which I guess is Russian and didn't come with directions. — hippietrail (talk) 10:52, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
Линекс should be fine to take, but I don’t think it will help athlete’s foot. It is a probiotic, like yogurt. It contains various beneficial intestinal flora. Adults should take two Линекс capsules three times a day after meals with a small amount of liquid.
Нітрофунгін нео is an antifungal topical spray. Adults should spray the affected area at intervals of 8 or 12 hours (i.e., 2 or 3 times a day) until the fungus disappears. To prevent a recurrence, continue for several more weeks at the rate of 2–3 times a week. —Stephen (Talk) 10:55, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
Hi, I missed this discussion. ტრაინიკი (ṭrainiḳi) does indeed sound very much like a Russian word тройник (trojník) (plural: тройники (trojnikí)), which has many meanings and among them - originally an adapter with three places. The unstressed "о" is reduced to "a" (so, it becomes "trajník") and Georgian adds an "i" to the end of nouns. --Anatoli (обсудить) 00:51, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
In Russian too, тройник (trojník) may mean a pipe with three ends, a triple hook for fishing, basically many things with three ends, so I'm not surprised a guy went to the plumbing section when you asked for ტრაინიკი (ṭrainiḳi). --Anatoli (обсудить) 00:57, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Sylvain can be a person’s name in French, but as far as I know it is not a word in English at all. If it’s a word, tell me its meaning. You have to translate meanings, not words, and I’ve never heard of "sylvain". How do you use it in a sentence? —Stephen (Talk) 01:56, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

What is the Irish Gaelic translation for "I Serve"? Thanks!

Freastalaím. —Stephen (Talk) 06:12, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Would that be the equivalent to "Ich Dien" in German? I also found this: Táim i seirbhís an Rí Rua. Rí Rua I'm under the assumption means Red King because the person was looking for a translation of "I serve the Red King". That's what I'm looking for too. Thoughts?

That would mean "I am in service of the Red King". —CodeCat 17:55, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Ok, what would be the difference between "Freastalaím" and "Táim i seirbhís an"? Is there a difference between the two? Basically I'm trying to say that "I serve" in the sense that I serve/play for these teams.

I don’t know anything about the Red King. Freastalaím means "I serve"; táim i seirbhís an means "I am in the service of". —Stephen (Talk) 06:32, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

Aramaic and sanskrit -Sylvain-

Oh, so sorry about that, I wasn't clear enough, my mistake..:)

Sylvain is a name. Can it be translated letter by letter?... Or the closest..

Thank you!

You mean "transliterated". For Sanskrit, I suppose सिल्वें (transliterated back into Latin letters as silveṃ) comes closest. Aramaic is written in more than one script: Jewish Aramaic is written in the Hebrew alphabet, and Christian Aramaic is written in the Syriac alphabet. Which would you like? —Angr 18:39, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

Hebrew alphabet please.... Thank you very much!

I guess סלון, though without vowel points readers might pronounce it more like "saloon" than like "Sylvain"! —Angr 19:22, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

English to Latin...

Hey, I am trying to translate 'Precious Child' into latin. My best guess is 'Puer Pretiosa' (pretiosa being the feminine derivative... Is this correct?

Unfortunately, that's a little messy. Puer means "boy", but pretiosa is feminine, so that doesn't work. If the child is a girl, you could say Puella pretiosa ("precious girl"). If the child is male, you'd want Puer pretiosus. Alternatively, if the child is yours, you can use filius (son) or filia (daughter). By the way, in Latin, pretiosus carries a connotation of precious in the sense of being expensive. You might want a different way of saying it, like Puella quam amo ("girl whom I love") or the masculine form Puer quem amo ("boy whom I love"). --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:03, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
By the way, if the child is very young, you can use infans for "child". It can be masculine or feminine. It's usually only used for children who cannot speak yet (or who cannot speak coherently yet). --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:06, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
I would use dilectissimus for "precious" in reference to a child. The feminine, of course, is dilectissima. —Angr 20:08, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
Hmmm... that also carries different connotations, but I guess "very much loved" beats "whom I love" (my suggestion above). --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 20:18, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
I like it cuz it's reminiscent of O best beloved from the Just So Stories. —Angr 13:44, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Romanian to English

Here in Romania besides the familiar dairy products and kefir / chefir, there is also something similar named ro:w:sana.

I can't find much information on what sana is and what makes it different to yoghurt and kefir, not in English and not even in Romanian.

Is there a word for sana in English? Is there a word for it in any other language or is it purely romanian? What is its etymology?

hippietrail (talk) 12:01, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Sana is a thin, sweet, drinkable yogurt. It has a higher fat content than most yogurts, 3.6%–4%. It is said to be like lapte bătut, but sweeter. Maybe it is related to Latin sanus. Another possibility is that it is related to German Sahne (cream), which is from Old French saime (cream), related to Latin sagino —Stephen (Talk) 13:36, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
I'm more inclined to believe the etymology from Sahne. —Angr 14:57, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Stephen: Hmm I started wondering about lapte batut too! I thought it might be whipped cream but apparently though batut means whipped, it's maybe some kind of milk rather than some kind of cream \-: Bulgaria shares a lot of culturaly similarites with Romania - any idea if there are Bulgarian words for either sana or lapte batut? — hippietrail (talk) 20:14, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
lapte bătut is a fermented, clabbered milk, or buttermilk. Bătut means beaten, but it’s beaten with large wooden paddles, not whipped with a whisk...this is how milk is clabbered. In Bulgarian, мътеница or Bulgarian buttermilk. The lapte bătut is like sana, containing 3.6%–4% milkfat, but where sana is sweet, lapte bătut is sour (and may have salt added). They are made from whole milk, not cream, with with bacteria cultures. For souring, lapte bătut has citric acid added as well, such as lemon juice. I don’t know of a Bulgarian counterpart to sana, but they might have imported Romanian sana (such as "Sana Mea", or "My Sana"). User:Bogorm would probably know about this, but he is on a wikibreak...maybe he would respond to an email. —Stephen (Talk) 22:14, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

てめえも すっこんでろ! --Daniel 20:42, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

てめえも すっこんでろ! ("temē mo sukkondero!") I think it means "you too, go away!" (rude). てめえ (temē) is the distorted/dialect form of 手前 (てまえ, temae) - "you", which sounds rude in this form and すっこんでろ is the abbreviated imperative of -te form + いる (iru): すっこむ (sukkomu) (to leave, to draw back) -> すっこんでいる -> すっこんでいろ -> すっこんでろ. --Anatoli (обсудить) 23:31, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

"for those I love I will sacrifice"

Do you mean "I will perform a sacrifice on behalf of those I love" or "for that reason, I will sacrifice those I love"? —Angr 22:53, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Clarification on previous request.

I apologize for not being clear. The translation that best suits my needs is " I will preform a sacrifice on behalf of those I love"

"for those I love I will sacrifice"

Do you mean "I will perform a sacrifice on behalf of those I love" or "for that reason, I will sacrifice those I love"? —Angr 22:53, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Assuming the former option, I would say Pro eis quos amo sacrificabo. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:29, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
Yes, although in Latin that sounds like a very literal meaning of sacrifice. It sounds like you're going to kill an animal on an altar on behalf of those whom you love. Condonabo expresses a more figurative sacrifice, but it requires a direct object; you have to say what you're going to sacrifice. —Angr 06:04, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
When you suggested condonabo, I mentally replaced sacrificabo with it in the sentence, and I ended up thinking, "what the hell did the OP do to his/her loved ones that the (s)he needs to beg their pardon?" Perhaps an SOP translation like sacrificium dabo would be better? (All my Latin practice was with faux Classical texts, so the characters made a lot of sacrifices on the altar but not so many figurative ones.) --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 15:33, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

By French orthographical standards, shouldn't this entry be at tʻes? --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 21:28, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

No. French doesn't use the open single quotation mark as an apostrophe. Its apostrophes are the same as in English: either straight up and down ' or close single quotation mark .

It's just struck me that the te es interpretation is also valid: consider tu t'es promené (you went walking, you took yourself walking). At least I think so. Equinox 21:35, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Oh yeah, you're right! However, that meaning is probably considered sum-of-parts as t' + es. But now I see that the "tu" meaning of t' is listed there too, making even the "tu es" meaning of t'es sum of parts. I really don't think we want entries for all possible clitic pronouns + vowel-initial verbs in French, do we? We also have s'est, but not m'ai, l'aime, etc.? I think t'es and s'est should be nominated for deletion. —Angr 21:42, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
In fact, there are a lot of things at Category:French contractions that should probably be deleted. —Angr 21:46, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
Anyway, to answer AE&OE's question, t'es in the sense of te + es means something like "you have done" or "you did" (to yourself). It's reflexive. Equinox 21:44, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
@Angr, I brought this up once before and there was no real appetite to delete them so I never even nominated them. Also consider t'as (tu as). Mglovesfun (talk) 21:49, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
It's also just t' (defn. 2) + as. I don't really see any point in these, and I really don't want to see j'aime, m'aime, t'aime, s'aime, m'aimes, t'aimes, t'aimons, m'aimez, m'aiment, t'aiment, s'aiment, etc., at least not for French where the boundary between the clitic and the verb is so clear. There are other languages where clitic pronouns are really like affixes, and then it might make sense to include forms with those affixes. But not for French. —Angr 22:27, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Translate this paragraph from English into French, please

Hello Banjamin and Julie,

We are writing to you in French in the hopes of avoiding any misunderstandings:

When we agreed to return the deposit, we were operating under the assumption that you (Benjamin and Julie) had given $500 to Elisa. However, reviewing bank statements, that is NOT the case. Benjamin's check was deposited and therefore, we rightfully returned the remaining portion of the $250 to Benjamin, so that is not an issue. As for Julie, however, her check bounced as a non-sufficient funds check, and both parties were fined $12. A NSF means that the deposit was NOT made into Elisa's account and was ultimately not charged to Julie's bank account because Julie did not have adequate funds in her bank account at that time. You can verify this in your bank statements as needed. On June 12, Elisa deposited Julie's check, and on June 14, she received a $12 fine and a $250 withdrawal of the deposit, which returned the $250 to Julie because of the non-sufficient funds. In conclusion, Julie's demand of $250 was unwarranted seeing we never received her $250 to begin with. Therefore, it is only right that you return the $250 to Marina (who returned your deposit). If you need verification, feel free to look at your bank statement. You will notice that there is NO WITHDRAWAL of $250 from Julie's account, only a mutual fine of $12 for both Elisa and for Julie. Attached is a copy of Elisa's bank statement history with sensitive material censored for her protection.

If you have any questions, feel free to call Marina, but this matter is very simple. There was no $250 in Elisa's bank account to begin with, and therefore, it is only right that Marina receives the $250 back.

Sincerely, Marina

My translation follows. I think you should check the names in the text to be sure you had them all correct. Some of them seemed confused to me (such as "Marina receives the $250 back"). —Stephen (Talk) 04:36, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
Bonjour, Benjamin et Julie,
Nous vous écrivons en français dans l’espoir d’éviter tout malentendu :
Lorsque nous avons décidé de revenir au dépôt, nous étions sous l’hypothèse que vous (Benjamin et Julie) aviez donné 500 $ à Elisa. Cependant, après avoir examiné les relevés bancaires, ce n’est pas le cas. Le chèque de Benjamin a été déposé et, par conséquent, nous avons juste titre retourné la portion restante de 250 $ à Benjamin, ce n’est donc pas un problème.
Quant à Julie, cependant, son chèque a été refusé pour insuffisance de fonds, et les deux parties ont reçu une amende de 12 $. Un NSF (chèque sans provision) signifie que le dépôt n’a pas été fait en compte d’Elisa et n’a finalement pas été imputé au compte bancaire de Julie parce que Julie n’avait pas de fonds suffisants dans son compte bancaire à ce moment-là. Vous pouvez le vérifier dans vos relevés bancaires si nécessaire.
Le 12 juin, Elisa a déposé le chèque de Julie, et le 14 juin, elle a reçu une amende de 12 $ et un retrait de 250 $ de dépôt, qui est revenu de 250 $ à Julie en raison des fonds insuffisants.
En conclusion, la demande de Julie de 250 $ n’était pas justifiée, étant donné que nous n’avons jamais reçu son 250 $. Par conséquent, il n’est que juste que vous revenez de 250 $ à Marina (qui a retourné votre dépôt). Si vous avez besoin de vérification, n’hésitez pas à consulter votre relevé bancaire. Vous remarquerez qu’il N’Y A PAS retrait de 250 $ du compte de Julie, seules des amendes communs de placement de 12 $ pour les deux Elisa et Julie. Trouverez ci-joint une copie de l’histoire de relevé bancaire d’Elisa avec des matériaux sensibles censurés pour sa protection.
Si vous avez des questions, n’hésitez pas à téléphoner Marina, mais cette question est très simple. Il n’y avait pas 250 $ dans le compte bancaire d’Elisa, pour commencer, et, par conséquent, il n’est que juste que Marina récupère les 250 $.
Je vous prie d’agréer l’expression de mes respectueux hommages.
I've made some corrections to the above text. —Angr 11:00, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Please translate from english to tibetan sanskirt

"The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go" - this is a quote from Buddhist teacher Atiśa Dipankara Shrijnana. This is the original written language of the quote and I'd like to have it as so.

There's no such language as "Tibetan Sanskrit". Tibetan and Sanskrit are two different, completely unrelated, languages. Atisha translated a lot of works from Sanskrit into Tibetan, though his native language was probably an early form of Bengali. Since most of his writing was in Tibetan, I assume that's the language you're looking for, but it's probably better to research out the original form of the quote rather than asking other people to translate the English back into Tibetan in hopes of getting to the original that way. It's very unlikely to work. —Angr 22:42, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

I believe my original source was not accurate. Reliable research tells me that Atisha translated Sanskrit into Tibetan in his original writings.

Funny request.

Also, пока (poka) is bye (casual) and до свидания (do svidanija) (goodbye) and прощайте (proščajte) (farewell) are formal. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 00:18, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, no problem. I just wanted to clarify, anyway. I thought that sayonara in English is used in the sense of "farewell" and "goodbye", in which case прощайте (proščájte)/прощай (proščáj) matches more than the others, especially пока (poká), which is closer to "see you later", "bye".

I don't know, there are many noun patterns. It only becomes confusing when translated into English ("-ий" becomes "-y" or "-i", "-iy" is uncommon). Russian native singular nouns seldom end in и, if they do, they are borrowed, usually neuters, и is often used as a plural marker (again, there are a few plural forming patterns). --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 02:38, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
Women’s given names often end in -а or -я (Анна, Елена), while men’s names end in a consonant. Just remember that и is a vowel (in fact, -и in the nominative usually indicates a plural form), but й is a consonant. I can’t think of any native Russian masculine name that ends in -и in the nominative singular. If the English transliteration ends in -i or -y, then the Russian masculine name almost certainly ends in -й. Of course, transliterated foreign names such as American names (Johnny, Larry, Gary) and Japanese names (Yamaguchi, Suzuki) will end in the vowel -и, but not so with native Russian masculine names. —Stephen (Talk) 02:52, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
Yes, that's right. There are many exceptions, of course. Masculine petnames or diminutives can end in -а or -я: Петя, Алёша, Дима, Вова/Володя, etc. There are full names, which end in -а/-я: Данила, Никита, etc. If feminine names end in a consonant (but not consonant + ь - Любовь) , they become indeclinable. Also see Appendix:Russian given names. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 03:04, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Your acute accents need to be grave since they're on the last syllable of a word followed by another stressed word: μετὰ Θεοῦ ἢ χωρὶς Θεοῦ. It would also be possible to use ἄνευ instead of χωρὶς. —Angr 09:06, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Spanish to English

Hi, I met a hot Spanish girl on holiday. She wrote me something, but I don't speak Spanish. What does she say? T'escric xk aixi, tot i que no ho vulguis hem recordanos, em veuros aqui. Gracies per estes magnifiques setmanes. Et trabaré molt a falter. M'agrades NAME PD Com se que també hem trabares a faltar (+0034) PHONE NUMBER

It’s Catalan. It has some misspellings that I can’t figure out.
I’m writing you xk well, although we do not want to be reminded, I would be here. Thanks for these wonderful weeks. And I'll miss you a lot. I like you
PS—How we have also missed (+0034) PHONE NUMBER —Stephen (Talk) 11:26, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
Maybe "trabares"/"trabaré" are meant to be "trobares" or "trobaràs"/"trobaré" which mean "you found/met" or "you will find/meet"/"I will find/meet" from trobar (to find, to meet). BigDom (tc) 12:06, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
Is "miss/be missed" the only meaning of faltar? It seems odd for someone to say "I'll be greatly missed" and "how we have also missed [a phone number]". Could that also be a typo for something else? —Angr 12:59, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
When people write casually, they make all manner of typos, misspellings, ad hoc abbreviations, and other things. There are clearly mistakes here, and probably some that I don’t even notice. This is simply the best I can do with the text provided. Also, you can’t rely on the punctuation. Just because there is no punctuation placed before the phone number, that does not mean that it should be as written. The phone number is probably not part of the sentence. —Stephen (Talk) 13:42, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
trobar a faltar is an idiomatic expression in Catalan; "Et trobaré molt a faltar" means "I'll miss you a lot". Also, the combination of present tense of haver + infinitive is used as a substitute for the preterite tense, which is probably very strange if you're not familiar with it. —CodeCat 23:29, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
It seems a linguistic experiment :) One possible correct way of writting it in Catalan would be "T'escric perquè així, tot i que no ho vulguis, hem de recordar-nos, en veure´ns aquí. Gràcies per aquestes magnífiques setmanes. Et trobaré molt a faltar. M'agrades. NAME. PD Com sé que també em trobarás a faltar: (...)" My free translation: "I’m writing to you because, you want or not, we have to remember each other, when we met here. Thanks for these wonderful weeks. I'll miss you a lot. I like you. NAME. PS—I know you'll also miss me, so [I give you my phone number] (...)".
-"Estes" is the Valencian way for "aquestes", but the Valencian form for "així" is "ací". Strange mixture. "ací" is "aquí" (here). You see, I don't speak Valencian :S
-"xk" is a SMS/IRC form for "perquè", as "bkoz" is for "because".
Good luck ;D -Aleator (talk) 12:46, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Which of these is the best translation?

They are the same translation. The only difference is that he added pronunciation in English letters for the second pair. Otherwise, the two pairs of translations are the same. The Arabic translation is كل يوم بيومه. The part that says "kull yawm bi-yawmi-h" or "kol youm be Youmouh" are not translations, they are just different ways that someone might try to write it in English letters. There are many other ways besides these. But the part in English letters is NOT the translation, the translation is the part in Arabic letters or Russian letters. You should ignore the English letters. —Stephen (Talk) 01:47, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Hey, can anyone please translate this sentence into khmer ? i want to get it tattoed on my arms, thanks Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.

thanks for your reply Stephen :) it sounds funny tho how you say live your life then die

It means to live out your life fully and completely, and do not give up or stop until the full measure of your life has been lived. Then and only then will you die, as it should be. —Stephen (Talk) 21:21, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

English to Latin Translation

Could I have someone translate "Adventure team" into Latin right now we have some saying its "In Mirificus Catervae" and I like catervae S an option since its more like "company" but I'm not sure for mirificus plays in. Thank you

The translation you currently have is unfortunately totally ungrammatical nonsense. I would translate it as grex adventurorum (it essentially means "the group of people belonging to events which are about to come"). --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 20:14, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

English to latin translation

Hello, could I have a translation of the phrase "Love from within" into Latin please?

English to Irish Gaelic

I'm looking for a translation to use for our homebrew club's annual St. Patrick's Day tasting event. On our event logo, one caption will read "kiss me, I'm Irish" and the one below (the one that I need translated is "F&ck me, I brew [beer]!" I understand that swearing in Gaelic doesn't quite translate well, so if it helps, I'm looking for "have sex with me" in the vulgar context (the closest thing I've found is "Bualadh craicinn ", which I understand literally translates into "skin hitting!")

If anyone can help me with this, I would be very appreciative!

Dutch 'gunnen' to English

Dutch to English. Currently defined as "to think someone deserves something, to derive satisfaction from someone else's success", but I think we can do better. :-)   (Previously defined as "to grant, indulge", but an anon changed it, with the edit summary "To grant or to indulge don't even come close to the true meaning of this verb so I've tried my best to describe it as accurately and briefly as I can"). —RuakhTALK 12:16, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

It is tricky because it works sort of backwards from English. Ik gun je dit = I think you deserve this. So it doesn’t simply mean deserve. Or: hij gunt je geen ogenblik rust = he thinks you deserve not a moment’s rest. —Stephen (Talk) 04:33, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
It is indeed pretty hard to translate to English. As another example, in the sentence "het is hem niet gegund", gunnen (here in past participle form) makes it mean something like "for him, it is not meant to be". Thayts (talk) 19:32, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Or literally, "it is to him not thought deserved". —Stephen (Talk) 21:42, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
I think that is closest. Gunnen means to think someone should have something. It is often used to explain the difference between envy and jealousy. —CodeCat 21:59, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

English to Japanese

God is Love. Does anyone know how to write that in Japanese?

神は愛です。 (kami wa ai desu) —Stephen (Talk) 21:45, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
My two cents. As a catch phrase なり (kami wa ai nari) is more common. There is also a song called so. Use です (desu) as a statement in a polite speech, である (dearu) in informative and (da) in plain styles. No ending is OK in the plain speech as well, especially when spoken by women. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 22:50, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank You Stephen

I need three phrases translated from English to Hawaiian, please.

All three phrases have the same first and last words, the only change is the middle word. Thank you in advance.

'The strong one' I have seen on some websites that 'kanunu' means both this phrase and 'uncle'. So I'm unclear on that.

'The fast one' or 'The quick one'

'The clever one'

These are for a story where Superboy from DC comics (who has lived in Hawaii) is telling his friends Robin and Impulse what they would be called in the Hawaiian language. He is called by the locals 'The strong one'.

kanunu means the physically large one; the tall and stout one; the husky one. It doesn’t mean uncle, but someone might nickname his uncle kanunu.
ikaika (another word for the strong one, this one means strong, powerful, sturdy, stalwart, potent, force, energy, might)
koke, ulele (there are many words for fast, these are just two of them)
akamai (one of several words for clever) —Stephen (Talk) 21:45, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank you Stephen for answering my questions. :D

Though how would I directly translate the words you provided into the phrases? Would it be like this-

The strong one = Ka ikaika haki

The fast one = Ka koke/ulele haki

The clever one = Ka akamai haki

I'm much better at Spanish, French and Irish Gaelic. :D

It depends on how you’re going to use them. If they are to be sobriquets, then I don’t think you need ka. What is this "haki"? Are you thinking of kahi? You wouldn’t use that. When you need the definite article, it is
ke kanunu (the husky, strong)
ka ikaika (the strong)
ke koke, ka ulele (the fast, quick)
ke akamai (the clever) —Stephen (Talk) 22:38, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks again. :D

And that makes sense I guess. I know some languages do that where a word is implied by the others.

Also I found haki at this dictionary page it is the fourth down.

I try to do as much research as I can, even if it's only a little short story. My best friend/editor say's I go overboard on researching. I'm just a curious person, who likes to learn new things. :D

English to Esperanto

Can someone translate/transliterate the names of the following characters from the film Wreck-It Ralph into Esperanto?

  • Wreck-It Ralph
  • Vanellope von Schweetz
  • Fix-It Felix, Jr.
  • Sergeant Tamora Jean Calhoun
  • King Candy

Much thanks in advance!

  • Wreck-it Ralph = Malkreanta-ĝin Ralf
    Vanellope von Schweetz = Vanélopi von Ŝǔic
    Fix-It Felix = Fiksanta-ĝin Filiks
    Tamora Jean Calhoun = Tamora Ĝin Kalhún
    King Candy = Reĝo Dolĉaĵo

I have followed Zamenhof, the creator of Esperanto, in transliterating names by putting an accent on the stressed syllable if the stress is not penultimate, and otherwise leaving the names as untouched as possible. The names that are titles ("wreck-it" etc.) I have translated. Please note that I have not seen the movie and I am just guessing the pronunciation of the characters' names based on experience. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:58, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Thank you! And now, I can start to learn Esperanto and then talk about these characters in Esperanto. I have two questions though. Would Sergeant translate into Serĝento? And, would Jr. translate into Junulo? - 03:29, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
Well, I speak Latin but my Esperanto is somewhat weak. I can understand a lot more than I can write. Given this, I asked an Esperantist to check my translations a few days ago, and he disagreed with them. For one, we confirmed that King Candy appears to be made of candy in the movie by asking a friend, and that lets us conclude that the awkward noun cluster I gave you would be better expressed as Reĝo Dolĉaĵa. Secondly, he confirmed that modern Esperantists do not usually transliterate names or use stress accents — they either leave them alone (like saying "Calhoun") or occasionally fully Esperantize them (like saying "Kalhuno"). Thirdly, he showed that it would be more usual to use the verb destrui rather than the synonymous but rarer malkrei, so Wreck-it would be Destruanta-ĝin.
I think something like Sarĝento and junula (as an adjective) would work well. If you are interested in learning Esperanto or just asking more questions, I would strongly recommend that you try out Lernu! where Esperantists of all levels discuss la lingvo. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 03:49, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

Unfortunately, neither of those is correct. The second one is closer grammatically, but it makes the serious error of getting stranger (as in "strange, stranger, strangest") confused with stranger (as in "don't talk to strangers").

request for english to aramaic

hi there i am requesting a translation of "four seasons forgotten" in aramaic thank you

Amharic, Czech, Hebrew, Ukrainian(?) Russian to English

The album - I got some pretty cool foreign language books from volunteering at a local library and I'm curious about the title of this Amharic book (just so I know what it's about), the note in this Czech book apparently titled November Hurricane by Bohumil Hrabal, what's on the cover of this Hebrew fashion book, and the note in this Ukrainian(?) book, Преподобный Серафимъ Саровскїй. Ultimateria (talk) 04:46, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

The note is not Ukrainian, it's Russian. "Преподобный Серафимъ Саровскїй" is pre-1918 reform spelling of "Преподо́бный Серафи́м Саро́вский" (the Reverend Serafim Sarovsky) (I've marked the word stresses). --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 05:12, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Oh, that's odd. It says it was published in 1971, but there are also many instances of the letter yat. Any ideas of why it still uses old spellings?
Also, can you read the note? Ultimateria (talk) 05:40, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
I don't know where the Russian title appears on the link. I only translated what you posted. As for the note, it's cursive in red ink, rght? It says: "1972 г. Моему любимому мальчику на память от мамы." - "(Year) 1972. To my dear boy for memory from mum." --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 05:49, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

The Hebrew at the top is הסיפורים המותחים ביותר בעולם‎ (hasipurím hamot'khím b'yotér ba'olám) which means "The most thrilling/suspensful tales in the world" at the bottom, it is the three words מְרַתֵּק(m'raték, fascinating), מַפְתִּיעַ(maftía', surprising), מַדְהִים(madhím, amazing). --WikiTiki89 06:36, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Disclaimer: I do not know a word of Amharic. The text looks like "የዳበሳ ጉዞ ከፈቃደ ልመንህ" (transliteration: "yädabäsa guzo käfäqadä ləmänəhə") to me. Hope this helps, πr2 (talk • changes) 15:30, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Some quick research showed me the second word ጉዞ means journey, so thank you for transcribing the words for me! Ultimateria (talk) 17:04, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
According to a native speaker of Amharic, the Amharic text can be translated literally as "[walking blindly] by Feqade Limenih" or "Aimless wanderings by Feqade Limenih". I guess "wanderings" / "walking" isn't far from what "journey" (I personally found a website which said it meant "tourism", which is relatively similar as well) and the "käfäqadä ləmänəhə" part must mean that it is by Feqade Limenih, so I have been able to track the book down to →ISBN! Apparently the name of the book is "Yedabesa guzo" which is pretty close to my transliteration "yädabäsa guzo". ;) πr2 (talk • changes) 01:09, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Latin to English from deviantART

I came across the phrase "Tempora fugit" at this deviantART page; and I'm assuming it means "times fly". Is that true or does it mean something else? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 03:44, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

More like "times, it flies". The subject is plural, the verb singular, and the whole ungrammatical. If the only change desired were to put the subject into the plural, it should be tempora fugiunt", "the times fly"... but I don't know how that makes much sense.
I suspect simple confusion between Cicero's o tempora, o mores! "Oh times, oh morals!" and Virgil's (paraphrased) tempus fugit "time flies". Catsidhe (talk) 04:32, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, I notified the creator, Kamikaye. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 04:40, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
By the way, Catsidhe. You can translate one of Aung San Suu Kyi's quotes into Latin if you want: "It is not power that corrupts but fear." --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 05:32, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
@Catsidhe: yes, it's ungrammatical, but there's a problem with your translation, too. fugio does not mean "fly" in the modern sense; that's volo. Instead, it means "flee" or "run away".
@LX: The quote is: Non potestas sed timor corrumpit. (Literally: Not power, but fear, corrupts. The grammar of the original does not suit Latin.) —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:38, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
"Time flies" is the canonical translation, in the archaic sense of "fly" = "flee". (fly etymology 2, verb sense 2.) It is also the only way the joke "Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana" can work. (With three shifts of meaning for "flies" in one sentence, if you think about it.)
On a tangential note, is there a way to link to a given etymology of a lemma, as there is to a given language for it? Catsidhe (talk) 05:55, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Damn canonicity! With the possible exception of "Fly, Fleance, fly!" which I seem to remember from Macbeth, fly is but rarely heard with that meaning from modern lips. To translate for the likes of a 17th-century Englishman is not going to convey meaning accurately.
But don't mind me, I'm just grouchy. As for your other question, do you mean like volo#Etymology 2 or something like that? if so, that's the only way I know of. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 06:01, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
Isn't this a modern use of that sense: "I can't talk right now. I gotta fly!" --WikiTiki89 07:03, 20 December 2012 (UTC)
@Catsidhe and Metaknowledge: you could also create an anchor (which won't change if e.g. another language is put in before volo#Latin that also has two etymology sections), either by inserting <span id="Latin_etymology_2"></span> and linking to volo#Latin_etymology_2 (as I did on WT:ANDS), or by something similar to {{senseid}}. That's if you need to link from one entry to another; I don't think it's worth it to put such an anchor in just to link to an entry from a discussion. - -sche (discuss) 07:21, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

English to Khmer

Can someone please tell me how to write HOPE in Khmer?

(Disclaimer: I don't speak Khmer) សង្ឃឹម (sɑngkʰɨm) means "hope" (both the noun sense and the verb sense). If it's for something important (or permanent, like a tattoo), please wait until someone else confirms this. Thanks, πr2 (talk • changes) 03:43, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

English to Dutch for Dutch Wikipedia breakdance move article

Here's the article I have in mind.

Subject/headline: Article Translation into English, please?

Body: Hello, I just came across this article via Caudex Rax (talkcontribs) and I thought I would like it in English. Thanks in the future.

Any opinions? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 15:34, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

"The sin of reading" in French? (Maybe Arabic, Persian, Khmer and a few others, too...)

In case you're wondering about where I got that phrase from, it's Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. Here's an empty list that anyone can fill out with a signature. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 12:23, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
