Doelago Well, thanks for adding it, even if this thread was kind of... Dead... But what ever... I guess I will add a few later today...

arturslv There's this one sentence - Liberate Tutame Ex Inferis
As much as I know, it means 'save yourself from hell'

V.Valorum Um... Dark Angel, there's only one 'G' in the word above to which you are referring, pronounced "nee-GAIR" and has nothing to do with race or rascist speech, its the latin name for the color black (like the background color of this message board). The word you are thinking of has two G's and no other definition.

As for translator software, you could, but it inevitably will not be right. There are conjugation issues that arise with Latin that are rarely built into such programs.

dark angel Its alright....But couldn't someone just use a translator? Anyway onto the point im actually posting for, Doelago you might want to remove the N word from your list on the black translation, racism is not allowed afterall.

V.Valorum There's a few ... hundred or so. I won't copy and past the whole PDF. But, here's a few odder Latin phrases to play with -

Consilium habemus. -We have a plan.
Consilium callidum est. -It is a clever plan.
Est tam callidum ut vinci bis. -It is too clever to fail twice.
Si caudatum, mustela sit. -It is so clever, you could slap a tail on it
and call it a weasel.
Hoc est consilium farcimen. -This is a weinie plan.

Te mortuo, heres tibi sim? -When you die, can I have your stuff?
