@George,
Thnx, George. Believe it or not, that's a typo not a grammatical slip. Laughing

Yeah, yeah, I know. They all say that.

@George,
ya same meaning pretty much, "seize the world" is definitely better wording
i want to make sure it means world and not day, unless they translate the same way

@steveyou,
Yes, it translates to "world", not "day".
They are distinct.

George,

You obviously have a command on the Latin translations. Would you translate "Slayer of the Beasts" and "Beast Slayer"

Thanks,
Tim

George,
I have received two translations from online translation tools. One that matches yours and one that was "Trucido of Beastia"
Can you tell me what Trucido of Beastia means? This makes me wish I had taken Latin.

@Ttim,
First of all, you should know that online translators take English words,
look up the Latin in some sort of dictionary database, and spit out the
result. No attention is paid to grammar. If the translator cannot find a
word, it just repeats the English.

Trucido --> I cut to pieces (or slaughter or massacre)
of --> Just the English word given back
Bestia (I think Beastia was a typo) --> beast

You got Interfector Bestiarum from an automated translator? Which one?

@George,
I got the following from Tranlate.google; " interfectorem bestiae" However, after closer examination, it is different. Is that due to the grammer you spoke of. You can see I know zero about Latin and really appreciate having someone such as yourself who knows a lot about it to share the correct grammer and definitions.

Best Regards,
Tim

George,
Can you tell me how to phonetically pronounce the following: I assume the Interfector is self explanatory. Im not sure where the accent marks go and how to pronounce the syllables.

Interfector Bestiarum

Ah, I should have known. The folks at Google have not only built a database
of definitions, but also of large bits of Latin literature.

@George,
george i must thank you for the contribution that you are giving to the world.i am from albania and i am saying this to remind you that what you are doing doesn't go unnoticed even in the smallest of places.
i believe that what i am going to ask is more than a small favor,but i am taking the risk to being refused:can you please translate me this little blessing that i have made for my family because i want to put it in a 3d photo crystal and it is something really special to me.so here it is:

blessed be the people of this family,
may fortune smile upon them,
may they have the light to shine in darkness,
may they have the power to banish evil,
love,wit,will.

p.s:can you please tell me how you learned latin?
i thank you and want you to know that even if you don't translate it,you have done more than enough even by just reading this comment of mine which in the end is from someone that you don't even know.
Gratias Wink

@eno,
blessed be the people of this family,
benedictus populus huius familiae,

may fortune smile upon them,
fortuna super eos sub subrideat,

may they have the light to shine in darkness,
lucem in tenebris lucere habeant,

may they have the power to banish evil,
virtutem malum depellere habeant,

love,wit,will.
amorem, facetiam, voluntatem

I first studied Latin in high school. Later, I entered a religious order
and continued to study Latin there. Back then it was required.
Many of our prayers and services were conducted in Latin as well.

Years afterward -- long after the order and I had parted company --
I saw a request online for a Latin translation, brushed the cobwebs off
my memory, and answered it. I've been doing that here ever since.

Hello, I have had so much trouble finding a good translation. I would love it if you could translate the following into latin for me.

' I am Everything and Nothing '
' Is this all you want to be '


Thank you.
George
