Greetings! Does anyone on here know how to translate phrases from English to Scottish Gaelic? I'd like to know how to spell:
"Stephen, the Pure of Heart"
Much obliged for any help you can offer!
This is what I came up with. Stephen an glan de cridhe.. here is where I got it.. lol
Many, many thanks! xx
I hope that it is right? Anyone? lol.. I know that the Irish Gaelic is different. is what I heard at least.. but the above is Scottish.. got it from the translator.. lol
Hmm. "de" is not used in many circumstances where "of" would be used in English, because most such usages are replaced by the use of the genitive case. I can't find any Gaelic equivalent of "Stephen", and the usage of the definite article in Gaelic is not what English speakers would expect.
I would express this as "Stephen, Glan an Cridhe" as a better literal translation of the English, but a native speaker might very well come up with something completely different - Gaelic has many idioms of expression which get an idea across in a way that is very different from the way English speakers would do it.
Would like to translate "The fork that shall not be named" into Scottish Gaelic, if anyone has suggestions. I have looked up all of the words, but not sure if they are assembled correctly.
quickfind:bigscot > " "The fork that shall not be named""
Now that one is downright weird. I Would translate that as "an fhorca, 's cha bhi ainm oirre" or "an fhorca", 's chan urrainear ainm a chuir oirre"
i was wondering what the translation for fiercer than fierceness itself would be. Thank you so much
hi just wondering if anyone can translate "The hardest thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to burn" into scottish gaelic ? i have used google translate but i want it as a tattoo so need to be 100% its right . thanks .
Hello! I have been trying to find a Gaelic translation for "Don't Tread On Me", and also confirmation that "Mac na h'Alba" is the correct form for "Son of Scotland". I would greatly appreciate any translation help or advice!
I recently was reminded of a children's show called Dragon Tales that use to be shown on BBC Two Scotland in Gaelic as Dragon Sgeul.
I've searched for it everywhere to watch it again but cannot seem find it so I was wondering if anyone would be able to translate the intro theme as well as possible so that I could record a cover, as I have a few friends interested in hearing one of their favourite Television show in a different language.
To the educated.
I am looking for the Scotish Gaelic translation for Dark Warrior.
If anyone can help please let me know.
Does anyone know the Gaelic spelling for "Richmond"?
I'd also love to know the gaelic word for family (meaning extended family like grandparents etc, not immediate family)
Does anybody know what the translation would be for "chase the wind and touch the sky"?
Thank you for any help you can provide!
I'm looking to translate " The Young Boy's " to Scottish Gaelic.
This is the name of my football team, and I'm currently designing a new badge.
The name was choosen as we are all young in comparison to the other players within teams in our league, having not long left school.
Thanks in advance.
" The Young Boys " -> "Na Gillean Òga"
Getting a tattoo so want all spelling etc to be correct. Would anybody be able to tell me what 'Love, Laugh, Dream' is in Gaelic.
quickfind:becca > " 'Love, Laugh, Dream'"
"Gràdhaich, Gàir, Bruadair"
I wouldn't guarantee that "bruadair" has the same connotations in Gaelic that "dream" has in English.
It could be done as nouns:
"Gràdh, Gàire, Aislinnean" - "love, laughter, dreams/visions"
Thank you. I was also wondering if you could translate 'mean speak, do weil' for me, it is off of a clan Urquhart's kilt pin.
Can anyone tell me what 'mean speak, do weil' is in scots gaelic please :)
That might be a bit condensed to fit the small size of a kilt pin. I have seen the full motto as something like "Meane weil speak weil and doe weil". There are several variations of that.
This could be translated as "rùnaich gu math, bruidhinn gu math, dèan gu math"
Can anyone help me with a translation of, Trust and Go Forward.
Looking for a translation for a tattoo, having done some rudimentary study of irish gaelic and scots gaelic I understand that a word for word translation is unlikely and that there could be different ways to express the phrase in scottish depending on the translator. That being said, the phrase I want translated, is: "Every man dies, not every man truly lives." Also, if I am fortunate, if someone could also translate "Races with spirits," and "dweller of two worlds," for a story I am writing I would be grateful.
I have been asking every Scottish person I know and all of my family and even asked a couple of Irish fellas at my football club if someone/anyone can translate a phrase for me from English to Scottish Gaelic. The phrase is "I refuse to sink", meaning never give up.
Is anyone able to help?
Thank you in advance.
Hi. I'm sorry to bother people on this website, but I need a quick translation of a phrase for a "Harry Potter" fan fiction story I'm currently writing. Said phrase:
"Friend of Dragons"
To explain the context, the person so called this is a young woman from Japan who pops in and out of places to save magical creatures - mostly dragon hatchlings and clutches - from poachers. The nickname came about because of the "HP" character of Rubeus Hagrid.
I note the above since I'm unaware of gender-specific terms in Scots Gaelic which might change the spelling of words as it does in languages such as German.
My thanks for your assistance in this matter.
