Important translation confirmation needed.

Took me a little while to do this. I just want a confirmation on my Latin to English translation, see if I did it right. Needs to be done by Sunday night, quite important also.

Graecī et Trōiānī bellum longum pugnant. tandem aliī Graecōrum
ad īnsulam Tenedum nāvigant et aliī in ligneō equō latent. ignārī dolī
Trōiānī in Trōiam equum portant. laetī sunt et multa convīvia multō
cum vīnō parant. tum somnus Trōiānōs habet. Graecī ...

Sequence of tenses

i work in IT and have been studying latin for about 3 years. I use an ancient textbook which was published in 1964 and I am confused about how to translate these sentences for with regards to sequence of tenses:

1. We do not know how many girls there were
2.I was wondering why you feared us
3. Tell me why you are afraid

I would much appreciate if somebody could both translate them ...

I have translated one sentence from latin to english and two from english to latin.

This is quote of Cicero, for poet Arches:
"Literarum studia adulescentiam alunt, senectutem oblectant, secundas res ornant, adversis rebus perfugium ac solacium praebent."

My translation:
Literature wishes to feed youth, rejoy oldage, adorn happiness, and proffer
haven and comfort in adversity.

Sentences from english to latin:

1) Golden equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius has been on Capitol.
In Capitalio Marcii ...

sunt pueri pueri

saluete omnes

I remember a former teacher of mine quoting this in Latin:

sunt pueri pueri pueri puerilia tractant

I am just wondering if the conditional clause does not need a subordinating conjunction. Any thoughts?

gratias uobis ago et diem bonum opto

super alta vectus Attis celeri rate maria

Nuper Benissimus noster et nescioquis inter se disputabant num antiquii usus sint forma plurali verbi maris. Non tantum huic verbo est forma pluralis sed etiam Catullus noster illa usus est. Ecce

super alta vectus Attis celeri rate maria
Phrygium ut nemus citato cupide pede tetegit
adiitque opaca silvis redimita loca deae
stimulatus ibi furenti rabie, vagus animis,
devolsit ile acuto sibi pondera silicis.

Eunuchus Terenti Afri

Hey all! Welcome to the new Eunuchus topic. I'm reading this work for an online free course with a leading European latinist and philologist. That's not my characterization but I do know that noster magister is very well thought of in GLL where he was once a member. The course, of course, is being given in latin.

Anyhoos, I'm glad to have found textkit because it is someplace that I can bring translation problems to. ...

Ovid and Fabia

I was reading a quick bio of Ovid (I think the preface of something I downloaded from this site) which mentioned Ovid and his 3rd wife, Fabia had a daughter who 'inherited something of his litarary ability' I assume that means there are writings attributed to her. Does anyone know her name, or if her writings still exist?

Caelambulatorem Lucum patrem olim cupere, Puto.

Hi, there's probably a post about this already, but I couldn't find it if there is. Anyway, I've been advancing in Wheelock's at a reasonable rate and I'm satisfied with my progress so far, considering the fact that I am teaching myself and discipline has never been a strong point of mine, I don't have much time to study undistractedly (you'd be suprised how hard it is to study with a girlfriend hanging on you ...
