:) Hey, guys, I'm writing a HUGE piece of literature, and I needed a good subtitle, so I got the idea to write a phrase that sounds good, and translate it in Latin, then use it (Better yet, use some latin throughout the whole thing) Problem is, I can't find an English to Latin translator, possibly because Latin is very hard to translate. But, since this is due in the next WEEK, I'm gonna need some help on getting some of this done! So, any suggestions you could ...suggest? I really need the help, you don't know how much. Thanks :)

I don't think you will find a halfway decent translator for this kind of stuff anywhere. What you need is someone who knows a little Latin to translate for you. If you post what you need translated, I can take a crack at it, but I make no promises as my Latin will be very rusty.

Pleased to be of service. ;)

I am very proficient in Latin and will be glad to help you. I can assure you this, as I've translated many ancient writings and have even began speaking latin over the summer.

I'll tell you what; as long as it's not a lot to translate (a simple subtitle will take me no time at all) I will do it. PM me, or post here, with the details.

A english to latin translator? Good luck finding that, Latin isn't quite the easiest language to translate. I would help, but there are volunteers apparently. :p

I'm in my 3rd year of Latin right now, so i guess the best you are going to get is me or a Latin-English dictionary. :p

Even if you found one it wouldn't translate correctly, however there is a program called quicklatin. (google it) Its free for a month or something like that. It works to get the words, but it can't do endings correctly. You need to have knowledge of latin to use QL to its full extent.

I can help a bit with latin, I've had 3 years of it and will be taking a fourth next semester.
