    As part of a creative universe I want to extend through a movie and a TV series, I intend to use this translation as motto of a fictitious sleep clinic that allegedly records dreams into video, so the phrase to be translated can also be "dreams to reality" (instead of into).

    By "dreams" I mean the noun, not the verb, but perhaps the verb can bring an interesting concept?

    The idea is to have a solemn, convincing motto.

    Thank you all so much in advance.

    somnia in res (veras)

    casus may also work in res's place (and veras would then change to veros).

    thank YOU!!
    but I don't understand how could veras change to veros, "somnios in veros"?

    thanks again!

    So you have these two options:

    somnia in res (veras) - 'dreams into (true) matters'
    somnia in casus veros - 'dreams into true events'

    I think veras may be optional in the first one (res is the Latin word for reality, a thing in actuality), but it may be better to include it. Wait around to see what others are thinking.

    That should be somnia, shouldn't it? (somnium is neuter)
    ivan.kireev and AoM like this.

    Thanks for catching that. I think I had somnus in my head. Edited.
