    Good evening to all! I am new to the forum and still figuring out how to use this app but have looked up information on here a few times.
    I am having trouble translating an English expression into Latin and was wondering of I could get some help from you.
    The phrase is "old sins cast long shadows".
    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    Also possible:

    Longas umbras faciunt peccata vetera.

    = "Old sins cast (make) long shadows."

    The second proposition is more correct.
