    I'd like to translate this sentence 'Through adversity, there is redemption' but it's been a really long time since I studied latin so I could do with some help.
    The best I've come up with is 'per adversitatem est redemptionis' but I'm stuggling with the grammar. If anyone has any suggestions i'd really appreciate it.

    You are almost correct, it should be redemptio rather than redemptionis.

    On the other hand, I don't know how much sense it makes in this form.

    What about something like redemptio per adversitatem invenitur?

    Redemption is found through adversity.

    or perhaps in adversitate invenitur redemptio?

    Redemption is found in adversity.

    or if you are looking for something terser per adversitatem redemptio

    Through adversity, redemption.
