    Hi All,

    Hoping you friendly people can help me with some latin translation.
    I did Latin for a year and all i remember at high school was a character called Caecilius who we used to read about..


    I need the translation for:

    They came, They saw, They conquered.

    I know the translation for the terms below in the 'I' and 'He' form but not sure on the 'they' form.
    Venni Vetti Vecci - he came he saw he conquered
    Vēnī, vīdī, vīcī - i came i saw i conquered

    In latin is 'he' and 'they' the same?

    Please and thanks in advance!

    • Civis Illustris
    It goes: venErunt, vidErunt, vicErunt (capital letter indicates stress).
  3. Bitmap Civis Illustris

    • Civis Illustris
    Cygnea, Gena
    That's not correct. "He came, he saw, he conquered" should be Venit vidit vicit

    No. They came, saw and conquered would be:
    Vēnērunt, vīdērunt, vīcērunt

    Thanks for that, much appreciated.

    Let's hope that Manchester United can now win the Champions league and complete the double then i can get,

    Vēnērunt, vīdērunt, vīcērunt
