Here is Randy Seaver’s (Genea-Musings) latest Saturday Night Genealogy Fun:
1) Find some of your favorite sayings, aphorisms, jokes, etc. They can be genealogy-related, or not.
2) Translate them into Latin using Google Translate (http://translate.google.com/?hl=en&tab=wT).
3) Share them with us in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or in a Facebook status line or Google Plus Stream post (impress your non-genealogy friends with your Latin skills!).
I decided to translate a saying that I learned in a Czech class. The teacher was actually Moravian, and said that this was a typical Moravian saying (“You can tell it’s Moravian because it’s super-correct Czech”). I took the English saying and had Google Translate put it into Latin, Czech (it didn't come out quite the same as the original saying I remember), and Georgian. None of the translations seems to get the last part right, but here goes:
This is something you would say about a person you do not trust:
Si verba ponte ire nolim eam.
Pokud se jeho slova most, nechtěl bych jít na to.
თუ მის სიტყვებს იყო ხიდი, მე არ მინდა სიარული იგი.
