English to Latin won't be that easy. I studied Latin in high school but we only translated from Latin. Translating to Latin was only for university-level, and I'm not even sure if they still do that there either.

Exactly. It can be done if it's simple sentences, with more colourful expressions it's doomed to fail in a miserable way.

Don't think there are any "Latin speakers" left, bro.

I studied Latin and Greek for eight years and I still don't think I could compose a solid, nunanced bit of prose in either language - and that would be with the aid of about five reference books.

Both languages are incredibly rich; Attic Greek and early dialects is one of the most plastic and metaphorical languages ever created. Try translating some of Plato's more challenging dialogues, i.e. Parmenides. Ugh.

Latin, too, can really bust some balls. Juvenal. Horace. Some of Cicero's syntax is so chisled translating it is like excavating a pyramid.

I completely understand, I've studied ancient history and classical studies at university...pretty much hoping that Veris Hostilis makes grammatical sense (I used an online translator), I would like True Enemy or Adversary to be translated..nothing too elaborate.

ANY HELP APPRECIATED.

I am fortunate enough to have our bassist for such things. he could/can do that and surprises me alot with all his ideas/corrections/know-how about that. I myself is only able to steal comeplete sentences from books, haha. but I would love to speak/understand it 100%, even just 10% would be great...

i toally agree, my favourite stays Tacite, stories about Britannicus and Neron are amazingly written. Remember indeed i translated some part of "De oratore" of Cicero, it was damn hard.

As opposed to you whom gets their NS ideologies from Wikipedia? Razz Hahaha, nah I picked up a Classical Studies and Ancient History paper at Uni and I remember them saying if you want to major in either you'll have to learn Greek, Latin or Egyptian/Hieroglyphs (depending on which culture you were interested in obviously) as a major also.

Only the mentally fit could sustain such a fuckload of taxing mental labour...although it seemed everybody that majored in it is either working at the university or doing retail.

Sounds about right, cool thing to learn but about as useful today as a degree in photography and religious studies.
