Need Help Translating My Bachelor Thesis Annotation

Postby bioluminescence » Fri Jun 01, 2018 11:31 am

Hello!

In the name of good old times I would really like to add an annotation in Latin to my bachelor thesis.
As I study engineering, it might be quite a tricky task, but I would be eternally grateful if someone could translate this to Latin:

Annotation
This bachelor thesis examines the working principles of smart antennas and their uses in modern communication and sensing systems. An overview is given of the underlying principles of classical electrodynamics and antenna theory. As a proof of concept a 4-element linear antenna array was built and its parametres measured and compared to theoretical model.

The bachelor thesis consists of 1 pages, 2 images, 3 tables, 4 formulas and 5 sources.


Thank you very much in advance,
JS

Yep looks good enough to me. There are a few slightly questionable choices made by Google, but the people reading your paper aren't likely to make a fuss.

What should I correct in Google's version to not look like a complete barbarian? :D

I guess, "Overview" and "Classical", for starters?to make a fuss.

In modern Latin there are some loanwords, so don't fret... You could always latinize the words: Overviewum and Classicalis, for example.

Nesrad is makng fun. The Google version is completely unintelligible, not Latin at all. Autotranslation programs have a way to go before they can handle a language like Latin. But his point is really that it’s silly to use a language neither you nor your potential readers understand.

That's what I thought.

I have a rudimentary knowledge of Latin since I had to take a course back when I was majoring in biology. Obviously, not enough to translate this annotation.

But I don't think it is silly at all. I wish people were more helpful.

I wouldn't have let you use it...

This would take considerable work to translate, especially to find equivalents of so many modern terms. I suggest trying your luck on reddit.com/r/latin, but remember you get what you pay for.
