    Hi: Help would be greatly appreciated
    I am in the process of setting up a new consultancy specialising in profit proection and security in the retail industry. Coming from a police background I quite fancy having a one word Latin name that reflects the business interests.

    I'd greatly apprciate any help available to translate a few English words to Latin:

    Security: Secure: Protection: Protector; All seeing: Discipline; Investigator

    Many thanks

    • Consularis
    All-seeing is perhaps the easiest: omnividens, -ntis. This is an epithet of God.

    Tutela, -ae (f) can mean protection, or the protector, or the person or thing protected. It is probably closer to the English "guardianship", though, than to "protection".

    Secure might be tutus, -a, -um or securus, -a, -um; security would likely be securitas, securitatis (f).

    For "discipline" you probably want disciplina, -ae. "Investigator" is harder-- there are nuances in both tongues. Scrutator, -oris is probably the word you want.

    Up to this point I have been serious. WHAT FOLLOWS, while it is indeed Latin, IS INTENDED AS A JOKE. I AM KIDDING. I wish to propose a company motto: Scrutinium et Securitas Securi Maxima which means (more or less) "Investigation and Security Employing a Great Big Axe". END OF ATTEMPT AT HUMOR.

    Hope this helps.
