  • Need latin help

    Hey guys,
    Need a little help with a Latin translation. I want to get the phrase "Always guide home" inscribed in Latin on a compass as a gift for my brother. I never learned the language so I could use a little help.

    The closest I've come is:
    "Semper plumbum domum" which I think is "Always lead to home" though I think plumbum is the mineral?
    or
    "Usquequaque rector domum" which may be "Always guide to home" but I think rector refers to a person?

    Any help would be appreciated!
    So you call this your free country

        "Always guide home" Not a good phrase in English! A better phrase would be "Will always guide you home". Literal translation from one language to another don't often work, because of differences in grammar.

        Maybe try these people, who knows, they may have access to a Latin scholar who would be willing to help you. Good luck, I think it's a great idea!

          Go to your local university, they more than likely have a Latin person there. Or maybe get some of the Latin Americans........

              As Vol pointed out.. my original quote wasn't very good, which probably made the translation difficult.. Garbage In-Garbage out.

              Settled in on "Mos usquequaque rector vos domus" which literally translated is "Will always guide you home"

              Thanks!

                  Has anyone worked out the Latin phrase in my signature? Well, the sort-of Latin phrase. Maybe a phsase with some Latin in it?

                      And that used to be our national catch-phrase. Unfortunately our own home grown slang is disappearing
