    Greetings to all Latin D members,

    Today I would like the phrase "Write it down" to be translated into Modern Latin if possible. This phrase emphasises that under any circumstances, you cannot trust/rely on your memory and therefore you must write everything down because 'what is written isn't lost'

    Thank you,

    I suppose there are many ways to translate this into Modern Latin.

    How about
    ea litteris manda.

    Maybe you can even go without the ea ("it") ... depending on what purpose you need it for.
    (other suggestions are welcome of course)
