Looking

How would you express something like "she looks scared" or "he looks nice" or something? Without using an adjective like pulchrus est. Would you say like videtur timere or something? Can you always use videri like that? My dictionary says something about using facies, but that seems a bit awkward to me.

Small translation... "Partus"

Hello! I am attempting to translate "The Bill/Invoice of Birth” from German into Latin and have at the moment arrived at "Parti factura".

I was wondering if anyone here in the forum had any other ideas? I'm aware that this could be quite boring compared with the other texts discussed here, but would be very glad for any short constructive replies.

Thanks!

A Problem in Martialis

Salvete, omnes.

I have had som trouble with this epigram by Martialis.

Cum sitis similes paresque vita,
Uxor pessima, pessimus maritus,
Miror, non bene convenire vobis.

My somewhat liberal translation goes as follows:

As you are alike and similar in lust for life,
you worst wife, you worst husband,

translation project - my supplication for assistance

Hello all,

For the rather informal Latin course I am currently taking at my university, I am required to translate a substantial (~200 words) passage from English into Latin.

Latin audio

If you know of any websites that host spoken Latin audio clips, other than those I have listed, please include them so I can try to compile a complete list. I used to know several more but many of the sites have shut down. I do not claim that they are all great :] I am also not restricting this to Classical reconstructed pronunciation.
