    I'm so glad I finally found this forum, because I've been fruitlessly trying to have this phrase translated for a long time.
    Wondering if anyone can translate "hammer down" from English to Latin for me? Like the phrase a trucker will use over CB.

    • Civis Illustris
    As in 'hurry up'?

    Yep, that's essentially the meaning I'm going for!

    • Civis
    Age or Agite (depending on the number being addressed).

    But wait for a latinist to offer a better option.

    • Civis Illustris
    Yes, that works very well - it's an especially common and colloquial way of saying it. Also cf. properā / properāte, fēstīnā / fēstīnāte. Take your pick. The first of each pair is addressed to a single addressee, the second to a plural one.
