"Live as if you'll die today." Can someone help me with this. Please

This doesn't translate to Mandarin.

It does not seem to have a good meaning. If you are going to die today, you would be very sad and very afraid. You would be crying uncontrollably and begging for someone to save you. I guess it would be:

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)

english to scottish gaelic

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.

I spoke with her and it's "hey girl, try to hang in there, I was busy with the kids" or words to that effect. Does that make sense?

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)

That's right. The English sentence seems strange to me. Converting romaji to kanji, just in case: 彼の血、無実と賢明. --Anatoli (обсудить) 23:07, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

"2012" in Chinese

--Daniel 19:18, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Do you mean the year 2012? Usually it's "2012年", can also be written as 二〇一二年, both pronounced as "èr líng yī èr nián". Transcribing numbers in Chinese is become less common, especially long numbers. 二〇一二年 would also appear in the vertical writing (still used in Taiwan). --Anatoli (обсудить) 23:03, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

English to Hawaiian Translation

Please translate: "My lovely sweetheart, Kaina" where Kaina is the name of a person. My best guess would be "Ku'u ipo a nohea, Kaina" though I'm not sure if it's grammatically correct and if the name is placed after with a comma as it is in English. Thanks!

It is something said in English, but not really in Hawaiian, I think, addressing her with both her name and an epithet. I guess it could be: ē kuʻu ipo nohea, ē Kaina. —Stephen (Talk) 08:38, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

"Irish til I die"

Éireannach go dtí mé bás. (should always get a second opinion or two before tattooing a foreign saying) —Stephen (Talk) 01:07, 24 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)

Preserving meaning and tune. Note: Translate the English lyrics, not the phrase. 10:49, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

You cannot preserve the meaning and the tune when translating a song or poem from one language to another. One or the other must be sacrificed. Preserving the tune is a most difficult proposition and the people who do it (and do it well) charge a pretty penny for the work. —Stephen (Talk) 12:08, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

What are you talking about? By Parth, do you mean Arjuna, the hero of the Hindu epic Mahābhārata, scholar student and son of Prutha? And by Purva, do you mean the 14 Purvas of Jain scripture? —Stephen (Talk) 06:36, 28 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)
