    See, the reason I posted up is because I know no latin, yet you are replying in latin!

    Anyhow, according to Google Translate it says that X-13 may help me - can you read/write latin then or was that a translate?

    That was a translate. Google translate is pretty good with latin.

    @Hightower:

    @X-13: Roughly translated means "I may be able to help you"

    @tech_guy: Roughly says something about "eating fish as he demands work" I could be wrong as it is years since I was forced to do Latin.

    @Hightower:

    I have just located a pretty decent Latin translator for you to use its here:

    Latin to English Translation

    You have to work out the words a little but is very good.

    Google translate is pretty close to what I have, which means mine is either correct or not too far wrong. Thing is, when I'm inking myself up with it it really needs to be right so would be chuffed if someone could help me.

    I can't speak/read/write latin at all, however you might have more luck getting a response if you said what it was you want translating?

    Shame I didn't see this before I scarpered for 1/2 term. Providing it isn't TOO rude, I could have asked one of our Latin teachers. Too late now, unless you can wait a week.

    My daughter is doing A Level Latin and is one of the top students - I can ask her for you if you PM the phrase.
