Your Questions About Google Translate
Can someone translate a sentence to Latin for me?
I’m trying to figure out what the Latin translation of “The hands of the past shape the future” would be… I spent 15 minutes of so with Google translate finding the best translation of each word, but obviously that doesn’t help much with grammar.
Closest I got was “Manus praeteritum praemonstro futurum” – but I know that’s not grammatically accurate all.
Anyone know the language well enough to tell me what it would really be?
Thanks in advance!
Well, that time with Google was 15 minutes lost.
A literal translation:
Manus praeteritorum futura fingunt.
Both past (praeteritorum) and future (futura) are plural forms. Romans looked on the past and the future as series of events, not as a single thing.
