    Re: Translation Please

    Do you mean automatic translators? Those often/always border on terrible.

    I've never bought a translation online so I cannot suggest you anything unfortunately.

    Did you mean this as imperative (i.e., telling someone to remember)?

    In this case here's my attempt: memora amplius quam oblivisci vis.

    The (automatic?) translation you got was terrible #-o

    I've looked at the same things as well. Here are two sites I found and am thinking about trying, but haven't yet.

    This one is $18 for a translation of less than 25 words (I think), and they claim Angelina Jolie used their translation service for her tattoo:

    I can't remember how much this one is, but I think they will send you a quote for what you want translated. You can send a quote request via email. I sent mine 02/20/06 but haven't received an answer as of today:

    Good luck! If you use either of these, let us know how they work. :lol:

    hee hee. Well, if they are certified translators it should turn out ok. But I'd like to know how they translate this phrase too.
