vīsne canēs ariēnās edentēs vidēre?

Post by Siegfried Zaytsev » Sun Jan 12, 2020 11:11 am

I want to write in Latin "Do you want to see dogs eating bananas?"

Here is my translation: "Vīsne canēs ariēnās edentēs vidēre?"

And then I want to write "follow this link" or "click this link", but I don't know how to translate it into Latin. Could someone please help me?

Hello!

I'll throw another translation out there, though I don't think there's anything wrong with yours.

Visne videre canes qui arienas edunt.

Preme (or premite, depending on who you want your audience to be) nexum would work for click the link

Thank you, whsiv! It's actually opposums, but I couldn't find what they are called in Latin.

"Didelphis virginiana" seems to be the scientific name of the 'possum.
