Sting Quenya translations- help please!

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and looking for help translating English into Quenya.

Can anyone provide translations for the following sentences? If exact word matches don't exist, could anyone provide the closest Quenya equivalents?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The fair lady who sings more sweetly than a nightingale was born on this day.

She who sings more beautifully than a nightingale came into the world on this day.

I hope you can!

I hope you are able to!

Many thanks,

Em has just left Hobbiton.

I was not able to get all the words, but some key ones:
world (earth)= kementari
lady (maiden)=wen
sing= lin-

This is certainly in the wrong forum. You might want to try the Language forum of the BD.

Aiwendil has been trapped in the Barrow!

Sorry, but this is the wrong forum for your question. Please try it again in one of the Middle-earth discussion forums.
