Thank you so much. What made the difference? Latin is quite the language to try and translate!

@George,
I could really use your help. I want to get a tattoo in latin for "always be strong." every translation site is saying that the proper translation is semper valēbit." is this right? or is there another way to make this vocative? Thank you!

Hi there,

I just want to verify which phrase is correct, that is 'In somnis veritas' or 'In somniis veritas'? The first one seems to be more commonly used, however I have read somewhere that the latter phrase is the more accurate one as 'somniis' is the plural of somnium, which means dreams. I'm not sure whether the phrase 'in somnis veritas' is accurate in Latin meaning in dreams, there is truth.
As I will be getting this phrase tattooed, I'd like expert opinion on this phrase and whether the phrase is appropriate for a female (I know some Latin words have male and female nouns...?)

Thanks~~

@missreina187,
In somnis literally means "in sleep", but may be used figuratively to mean "in dreams".
In somnis literally means "in dreams".

The phrase (either one) is appropriate for a female or a male.

@George,
Hi is " Sola fide, alis volat propriis" the correct way to say "By faith alone, she flies with her own wings"

And if it's not what would be the correct way to word that? I wanted to get it as a tattoo

@kendoll,
Yes both phrases are correct and of long standing.
Sola fide refers to the doctrine of justification by faith alone.
Alis volat propriis is the motto of the state of Oregon.

@George,
Wow, you really are the Latin guru around here!
Could you translate 'learning for its own sake' or 'knowledge for its own sake' into Latin for me?

@George,
My goodness, you are helpful. Mind if I ask for a short translation as well?

I need to translate "And finally, the morning lion may sleep, his mind quiet, his heart still" into Latin.

The words somnus for sleep and placidum for placid/still look nice and are preferred if they can be used accurately, but I don't know if they can. My understanding of Latin is rudimentary at best and different translation sites give vastly different answers.

@Luna M,
Here's how I would translate it:

"And finally, the morning lion may sleep, his mind quiet, his heart still"
Et tandem leoni matutino mente placida corde silente somniare licet

Hi, I was wondering if you can assist me. Can I email you my medical diploma for a translation?

George, would you mind taking a crack at this ? It's an old favorite.
