Warhammer 40k | Imperial Language Imperium | High Gothic ( Latin )

http://s-and-j.co.uk/warhammer/latin/index.html

These are Latin phrases I consider particularly suitable for use in Warhammer 40,000.

I had been lurking in the newsgroup alt.language.latin for some time when I realised many of the requests for translations were actually from Warhammer 40,000 players.   Also, the same requests were coming up time and time again.  Furthermore, I was seeing translations that, while not related to Warhammer 40K, would be suitable.

There are already many websites on the InterNet for Latin translations, so what makes this one different?

– the translations are those I feel suitable for use on Warhammer 40K models and buildings;
– they are generally short;
– they have been translated by people who are confident in their use of Latin;
– there are few of the humourous translations (‘eat my shorts’) as they are covered on other websites.

Where you see more than one Latin phrase for an English phrase, just choose the one you like the sound of.

Tips and suggestions for use:

– ALL CAPITALS ARE OK;
– A Mix Of Capitals And Lower Case Is OK Too;
– or just lower case;
– Games Workshop use the letter ‘u’ in Latin, you may svbstitvte ‘v’ if yov wish;
– it is YOUR inscription.  I am a great believer that they’re YOUR models to be painted as YOU see fit.  If the tech-marine / grot / grunt / ratling / whatever in the unit is not much of an artist then your models’ paint jobs won’t be either – it ain’t your fault!   (That’s the excuse I use anyway.)

Suggestions, comments, corrections, donations – in English, please – to: Latin@s-and-j.co.uk

***  To make it easier of authors, and so for checking reasons, this list is currently sorted by: a) author contact made; b) permission to quote and citation details received; c) author ***

*** This will be prettified and go live at the end of July 2002 to, well, here. ***

 

I have accumulated a few hundred Latin / English phrases suitable for use on Warhammer 40,000 figures, buildings, etc.  This will go on-line in the next few weeks (I am aiming for the end of July 2002) once I am happy with the translations and if the authors are happy with me publishing them.

These are Latin phrases I consider particularly suitable for use in Warhammer 40,000.

Please note, I do not know Latin myself.  I have merely trawled the ‘net to get these.  The majority of these have been requests for translations in the newsgroup alt.language.latin, either Latin to English or English to Latin.  While lurking in that newsgroup for the last few years I have been recording translations I thought suitable.  I had been lurking in the newsgroup alt.language.latin for some time when I realised many of the requests for translations were actually from Warhammer 40,000 players.   Also, the same requests were coming up time and time again.  Furthermore, I was seeing translations that, while not related to Warhammer 40,000, would be suitable.
