15 Popular Movie Quotes Translated into Latin Posted by Brittany Britanniae on May 28, 2014 in Latin Language
When we asked to write a post on popular movies quotes and have them translated into Latin, I was eager to jump at the opportunity. I should note that some quotes are left off my list such as ones from Forest Gump, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Gone with the Wind. These and other films have already been translated on a previous post of mine which you can find here.
I have tried to translate each quote with easy to recognize vocabulary (but you can use this tool here for vocabulary), English word order (Latin usually has the verb at the end and may forgo some words I provided), and if you have questions please feel free to comment or message our Facebook page!
