The purpose of this forum is to provide a place for people who are interested in the Irish language and various Celtic languages to discuss them, to practice them, and to share information about them, particularly (but not exclusively) in the context of traditional music and culture.

This is not a "translation forum," per se, though translation requests may occasionally be honored at the discretion of the moderators. If you're seeking a one-time translation for something like a tattoo, engraving, wedding vow, or other such purpose, we strongly recommend that you visit our friends at ILF: http://irishlearner.awyr.com

Och, dearie! Is that better, Denny? :-)

Actually, I think that's a pretty good translation of the request. A universal cry of optimism, masquerading as angst.

Remind me, Red ... Did we agree not to do tattoos here?

Hmm, good question. While Red's told many's the sordid tale of such irritation and woe visited upon other language enthusiast websites, I don't recall a specific policy for here; we've been blessedly able to dodge that sort of thing so far. But if this is the beginning of a new trend, I'll vote for a "NO DRIVE-BY TRANSLATIONS FOR TATTOOS OR BODHRÁN DECOR. NOPE. NUH-UH. DON'T EVEN ASK." policy, myself.

Do you know where I can find someone who can?

Thank you very much!

And by the way MTGuru, is it so difficult to say: I dont wanna help you! without insulting my request? You dont know anything about me and the reason why I want this tattoo so don't judge it (its a sign of hope for people like you). And its not my fault if translation requests are allowed on this forum ok, I was only asking for help damn it! Thank you! And never mind!!
