    Miau is right…a couple of the others are also not correct. Beautiful as they are…people really must check translations!

      @Rebecca or Miau, what’s the correct translation for “All men must die” and “We are all sinners”.
      Looking it up for a friend, any help would be appreciated :)

    Hi all, I see some of you have spotted some incorrect spellings. I am looking to get a Latin tattoo, and really want the words and spelling tone correct.

    The word in English I want are “what is meant for you, won’t pass you” would really appreciate if you help translate.
