latin translation for tattoo

Postby w_ille » Sun Aug 21, 2011 3:22 pm

hello

Would anyone be kind and help me to translate this into Latin

"Family means everything in the end"

I will have it as a text on the chest, if you have any suggestions for similar text please say that to me.

"Familia demum omnia est"
or say it in English. This isn't helping you to translate it. This is translating it.
Vel anglicè scribas. Te non adjuvo ut id in sermones latinos vertas. Ego verto.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

Mi Adriane, cur dicis "omnia"? Nonne omne?

I'm asking why he's chosen "omnia" over "omne".

To me anyway,—maybe I'm wrong,—"omne" means "every thing" or "each thing" but "omnia" means "everything" or "all things", so "Familia est omne" means, as I imagine, "Family is every thing" but "Familia est omnia" means "Family is all things" or "Family is everything".

Fortassè erro at mihi equidem "every thing" anglicè "omne" significat, "everything" omnia significat, ut mihi videtur.
