"How do you pick up the threads of an old life. . . . . . how do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand, there is no going back."

Thanks in advance!

This isn't a translation, really, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me which one of these, if any, is the correct version of the phrase "Il ilya ya rana ier wanwa". As you can see they're both the same until the end, where I'm not sure which is the correct tengwa to use for "r" in "ier" and which "w" to use in "wanwa". Also, I'm uncertain about the placement of the vowels.
So does anyone know for certain what is correct?

Image
(I'm sorry the vowels are so hard to see, but I couldn't make them any clearer. Hopefully you'll be able to see where they're placed and which I've used. Over "r" in "ier" there's a dot and a line...)

Okay, I've been on CouncilOfElrond and I think that I can help some of you out. :)

Windth: Here's Raven Wolf in Sindarin: Craban Draug (or Garaf)

And Quenya: I couldn't find Raven, but Wolf is Narmo.

Beriadinelf: Here's Brotherhood of the Blade in Sindarin: Gwador en Hathol

My Sindarin isn't as great as other people's, but hopefully this helps.

Hi!
I am looking for a translation of the following phrases/quotes into either Quenya or Sindarin (the one that makes the most grammatical sense if it were to be spoken out loud).
I've found some sites that generate literal translations of English words but I am not sure if grammar is the same in English as it for either elvish language. Maybe elvish places the adjectives after the nouns, sort of like it is done in Spanish?

Anyhow, here they are:

"Focus on your goal and thou shall not derail from the path."

and...

"Find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest."

Thank you very much in advance and I hope somebody is able to help!

P.S. I saw some older post wondering about how to write in Tengwar on MS Word so here is a link to download the font,http://www.dafont.com/tengwar-annatar.font my research tells me it is the most accurate one (and it will be the one I will use to write the translation of the phrases listed above).

I want a sindarin tattoo. I'm thinking of something like 'Daughter of Michael' or 'Cathrine and Michael'
Can anyone help me with not only translations into elvish, but into the tengwar alphabet? I've researched and tried it on my own a few times, but a tattoo is forever so I want to be sure I've done it correctly!

There is a word in Etymologies: sell 'daughter' and later, in the King's Letter (part of the abandoned Epilogue to The Lord of the Rings) there is a plural sellath 'daughters'. Considering that Tolkien changed his mind a lot, I don't know if this was certainly superseded, or not, by something later, but what I can say at the moment is that it was once considered as the 'Noldorin' word for daughter, and may have been deemed so in later Sindarin.

I've seen sell used in Neo-sindarin compositions, but I couldn't find this word in Words, Phrases and Passages, which would be a post-Lord of the Rings source in any case -- the fact that it doesn't appear here may or may not tell us anything much, unless another word for 'daughter' appears. This also does not include a possible 'daughter of' as an ending, but whole words, as I would like to keep Michael but avoid adding a Sindarin ending to it. So maybe...

*sell Michael for 'daughter of Michael'


I don't think we need a genitival article here, considering Ennyn Durin Aran Moria 'Doors of Durin, Lord of Moria'. Some might try to translate the meaning of Michael and suggest a Sindarin form that might mean the same thing (I note that 'Durin' is not a Sindarin name in any case)...

... but this is not necessarily necessary in my opinion :-D

Although just looking at it in Roman letters, if Michael were considered a Sindarin name it would, in my opinion, be pronounced with: short i as in English sick (Sindarin short i has been debated a bit however, and some think it should be like that in English machine rather), -ch- as in German ach, and ae sort of like in English eye (like in Maedhros).



As I don't have the computer skills to do so, nor the desire to learn how, I can't show you how to write this with Elvish letters however -- but if you like it and no one disagrees with it, I could describe how to write it using the numbered chart in the books, as a last resort and if I can find the time.

that seems confusing! but i am interested in knowing how to write it using the chart.

also; for anyone who wants to translate into tengwar, here's a really nice website that provides you with not only the tengwar alphabet, but instructions on how to arrange the letters;

http://www.starchamber.com/paracelsus/e ... nutes.html

and this site has numerals;
http://www.omniglot.com/writing/tengwar.htm

here is a full translator, but you need a tengwar font(i found one on dafont.com) and i am not sure how accurate it is, but;

It would be a matter of me referring to the Elvish letter by referring to its name -- and number, on the chart, with some added description. This is one I already described for Quenya Ellóte for example, which in my opinion would start with...


e-tehta (looks like an acute accent) over a short carrier

Lambe (number 27 in the chart) with two curls above it, curls open to the right (double curl as the vowel o is long here), and a horizontal line beneath the baseline of the tengwa to represent -ll-.

Then Tinco (number 1 in the chart) with an e-tehta above it.


In other words, just find the basic letter next to the number in the chart. Vowel diacritics, if employed, are sort of described, like for examples: three dots, acute accent (or 'slash'), one dot, or a curl open to one side or the other.


If that seems too confusing or bothersome let me know, but as that's one I already did, it was easy to cut and paste here to give you an idea.

Ah, I found a couple things on the interweb!

The first example is actually sellath 'daughters' so you will need to shorten it. I can't seem to get a direct link, but from the first link below click on Calligraphy -- then Maendeithad Edhellen Elvish calligraphy by D. Daniel Andries -- then scroll down to Suilad Aran Edhelharn (or The King's Letter) and click on the picture. On the 4th line of writing from the bottom the first word is sellath -- but again, as you only want sell you will copy the first two characters and the vowel mark and the little line -- because the little line under Lambe (number 27 in the chart) doubles the consonant.


So it's Silme (29 in the chart) with acute accent (or 'slash') above Lambe (with the little line below the top line of Lambe for -ll)

http://www.elvish.org/gwaith/language.htm


As for Michael, Tolkien wrote this himself in an inscription. Skip the first word in the link below, as the writing begins 'For Michael...' and you'll note the name ends with Lambe (27).

http://pic6.picturetrail.com/VOL164/135 ... 019467.jpg


Hope that made it... easier!? And again that's just my opinion of how to write this!
