Isildilmë,

Please may you transcript me the saying "a man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it" in the Tengwar Annatar italic font please? The translation in Quenya is "Nér lelya i ambar sácala ya merissë ar nanwenë marenna tuvitas".

Cheers!

Hello Isildilmë,

Thank you again for your previous transcription – they came out great!

I was hoping you could do a few more as time allows:

Phrases I would like transcribed: “No matter what, you keep finding something to fight for.” and “It’s got everything to do with that little girl.”
Language: English
Font: TA-I and TC-I

Please let me know if you need any other information from me.

Thanks,

Hos

Would these be correct transcriptions of the phrases I previously requested?

I apologize for my rush, I really don't mean to be annoying, it's just that these are for my engagement rings and I super excited and anxious about this.
Thank you in advance.

Hello,I'm sorry if these names have already been mentioned but I'm looking for the most correct version of Arwen (in elvish not English) to use as a tattoo. my daughter's name is Arwen! Also could you show me the name Vincent in tengwar please? My son's name. I'm thinking of having both names tattooed :) . Thanks so much in advance x oh and the sindarin font please x

Sorry folks, everybody here has been sick at a moment in the last week, so it was a nightmare most of the time !

Thanks to those who took a minute to come back with comments and feedback on their transcriptions ! I’m happy you like them :)

evarist : I try to respect the order of the requests, and I have to live too. Your transcriptions will be posted as soon as your turn comes, thank you for understanding.

bancho100 : I noted the change.

elvish15 : I’m happy you found me :) haha… but you might choose a font from the list in the introduction maybe ? Follow the link in my signature.

Isaac Dale : so you want the English and the Quenya versions transcribed ? Or just the Quenya ?

Hos : perfect, as usual :)

barbara.coelho : The transcriptions are WRONG ! Please email me with "Tengwar" in the subject.

Chenlie : you forgot to tell me in what language you consider Vincent name is, so that I can choose the transcribing mode.

I thought I could do a few transcriptions this morning, but there were more new posts to answer than I thought and my son is waking up… I’ll try very hard to come back tomorrow with a few ones.

Hello Isildilmë! :)

I wanted to ask for a transcription, here the information:

1. Quote: " Tomorrow will take it away, the fear of today. "
2. English like here
3. TA-I ; TC-I ; TEmar-I
4. ---


It is a lyrics-verse of the "Bard's song" by Blind Guardian (they don't seldom sing about tales and fantasy and also about Lord of the Rings).
--> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoYjtAX7w1M || This is a live version of the Wacken Open Air 2011 (my first one, I was 14) and the feeling is overwhelming...
I want to tattoo it in September, that's why I don't transcribe it myself - you simply have more skill and I want to make sure it is 100% right :).

I also wanted to request this one:

1. Quote: "And woe to all who stop at the horizon."
2. Again English
3. TA-I ; TC-I ; TEmar-I
4. ---


Thank you for your help! ♥

Hi
I would really like to get "Always" or possibly "Always and forever" tattooed on elvish (as part of a larger tattoo piece). I'm having trouble trying to find the correct way of translating it. I've found a few different images, I know there are different styles and so some would appear different but some are so completely different that one (or both) must be wrong!

I like the italic styles as I think they look nicer in a tattoo. I tried to attach a picture of the different variations I'd found but for some reason it won't let me :(

I'd really appreciate your help!

Laura-Lou28, if you go to the Language Forum, you'll find translation threads for both Quenya and Sindarin and request help from both or either of the moderators.

I don't know whether your Lou is short for something, but my sister's name is Janet Lou, after our grandmother, Blanche Louella. She has always hated her middle name and we are forbidden from using it. So naturally, whenever we want to annoy her, she hears a lot of Janet Lous!

Almatolmen - I meant I couldn't figure out the right way to write it rather than translate it. I've found about 5 different versions of script that are all apparently meant to say the same thing :| I don't wanna get it done only for someone to tell me it's wrong, because as I said it's going to be incorporated into a larger tattoo piece. I don't know if the Sindarin/Quenya threads would help, I thought (from browsing the forums) that all the "how would you write this..." type of requests went here?

Haha you shouldn't tease her if she really hates the name! It's not short for anything. A lot of people think it short for Louise or Louisa but it's not, it's just Lou :)

Sorry. Words do matter! What's done here is to transcibe, not translate. I can translate something from English to Russian, which can be written in Cyrillic or transcribed into Roman. Or, if I'd like, the English could be transcribed into Cyrillic.

But, it's so much fun teasing big sister. And we don't do it often. Mostly these days on her birthday. I grin evilly as I remind her that she's 14 years older than I am and Mom & Dad bestowed her with such a nice name to honor grandma. :twisted: :twisted:

"Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday, Janet Lou,
Happy Birthday to you!"

Laura Lou, Alma is write (is usually is, btw :D). You should read the introduction (link in my signature) to understand better what is the difference between a translation and a transcription. If you don't want to change the language but just want to have it written in Tengwar (Elvish writting), then yes you are at the good place. But you have to choose a font, "italic" is not enough. Again, see the list in the intro (ex. Tengwar Annatar, italic form).

The other new requests are fine !

ahhhh, I wish I had an older sister to tease ! not always as fun with younger ones !

I treated the name as if it was in English, as I don’t know from what language it is. I would end almost the same treated as French.

I didn't really make myself very clear did I? Sorry about that, I wrote that post after a 16 hour on-call shift. I think my brain had melted :(
I did mean transcribe not translate. I would just like to see "always" and "always and forever" in elvish script, not translated into any other language. Would it be possible to see it in Tengwar Annatar Italic and also Tengwar Sindarin Italic please?
Thank you!

Isildilmë,

thanks for the transcriptions. They look amazing!

If I may, I'd like to ask for a favour. In the second request that I made, the one with two sentences (one in English and the other in Quenya), could you also do it in Tengwar Anaatar (regular and italic).

Once again, thanks for your help! :)

Rpsantos : no problem

Sanne29 : perfect

alottaroses : it’s not exactly the same as how I prefer to transcribe it, but many transcribers write these sentences that way. There is no problem to go with them. If you want to see mine, email me and I’ll send them to you (I did them a few times in the past so I still have the files). And Alma is right, it’s a TRANSCRIPTION, not a TRANSLATION. The language is still English, just written with a different script.

Eas03 : no problem, but please confirm the language of the name… English ?

alottaroses, Isildilmë doesn't translate. Go back to the. Language. Forum and find the most recent Quenya Translation thread. You can get help there. I'm sure that the phrase is on file, since it's popular for tattoos.
