I'm trying to get an accurate translation of:
'Your smile would persuade a sundial to work in the dark.' into Latin
The best I have managed is Tuus risus persuasit horologium - opus in tenebris.
This may be terrible but it makes more sense to me than the Google etc. translations I have had...
I would prefer to not use a hyphen and have 'to' in it's place, but as you will know only too well - it's not as easy as that.
I'm having a sundial engraved with the text for our 38th wedding anniversary. Left to my own devices it may be our 40th before I solve the problem. So, over to you!
Many thanks in anticipation.
@Hector H Taylor,
Subrisus tuus solarium in tenebris operari persuadeat.
Note that I'm not a professional Latin scholer, just a guy who does this for
fun. You should have someone else review this.
