English to Latin help needef

I need some help to get an English line translated into Latin.

I want to make it part of a painting I m getting done for a band, but I don't really trust online translators such as Google and plenty more. I want to be sure it s done by someone with a strong Latin background.

A million thanks


The line is: I WILL NOT REPENT.

When I put this in google, it says I do not regret.

They give as option: "et non poenitebit eum:" or "et non egerunt paenitentiam"

But none of em actually say I will not repent when you reverse translate it. There s always a slight nuance. And apparently ":" makes a bit difference at the end of eum.

I m confused now haha

>> When I put this in google, it says I do not regret.

I would not rely too heavily on Google Translate. As automated translators
go, it's pretty good, but it is far from perfect. In this case though, it is on
the money. "Regret" and "repent" are alternate translations of the Latin paeniteo.

Go back and do it again. Then put the cursor over the English "I do not
regret". You get an option to click on the phrase for alternate
translations. The first alternate translation you get is "I do not repent".

I just noticed you used the future tense. I was using the present. I should
have written:

Non me paenitebit.

Sorry for the confusion.

My pleasure, but if you're going to use it for something permanent like an
engraving or a tattoo, be sure to have someone else review it.
