Quick Translation

Postby Javen » Fri Sep 10, 2004 2:31 pm

Hey guys, just wanted to know a quick translation for something.

"Raise Up My Brother"

i think it is something along the lines of:

"suscipio meus frater "

?? Can anybody help me with the exact grammar?

do you mean "raise up, my brother" i.e. asking your brother to raise up (=rise up?), which could be translated as 'surge, mi frater'
or "raise up my brother" i.e. asking someone to lift your brother up, which could be translated as 'attolle fratrem meum'?

It would be more "I am going to raise up my brother"

So how would that be written then?

I'm trying to sort out a motto for something you see, and I want to make sure its correct.
