Well, if no one else cares to translate that, I will.

Morgoth to Húrin:

"Sit now there, said Morgoth, "and look out upon the lands where evil and despair shall come upon those whom you have delivered to me. For you have dared to mock me,"

The quote is not from the Silmarillion but from Narn i hîn Húrin, I noticed.

I trust you're correct, Guinevere, so let's have some action on this thread, shall we?

OK, I'll try my hand at some Italian again:

Quote:
Ma che faró allora affinché non sia in collera con me per sempre? Come un fanciullo al suo padre ti offro queste cose, l'opera dei mani che tu hai fatte. Fa con ció che vuoi.

Thumbs up Correct!

Well, that was a fast answer, Andsigil! ( Especially considering how long it took me to translate that quote to Italian! )
Btw, welcome to the game!

Thanks. I learned a smattering of Italian from my grandfather, who was a native of Turin... er, Torino, not Turambar.

How about this one. I haven't spoken Japanese for 19 years, but here goes:

Quote:
"Ima, nani fune sonnani hiroi taiyo muko ni anata o motte ikimasu ka? Hai iro no fune de, yurei ga imasu."

Anyone?

Maybe romanized Japanese is a little too obscure. And/or my translation may be slightly off.

Not my work, mind you. I've a friend who has got some skill in it, and they did an approximate translation, and I Tolkienized it.

My grasp on Irish is slack at best, so I'll treat you to some nice, down-to-earth French. Not as obscure as Andsigil's Japanese, but entertaining nonetheless.

"My armor is like tenfold shields, my teeth are like swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath... death!"

Actually, I literally know only a few words of French. However, I'm lucky enough that, being a bladesmith, I recognized "épées" (swords) and "lances" (spears) and "mort" (death).

That quote sounds wonderful in French, by the way.

Here is some Spanish. I imagine this one will be solved fairly quickly:
Quote:
“Necio Viejo! Este es mi hora. No conoces la muerte cuando la vez? Muere ahora y maldice en vano!"

Isn't Agan's hint enough? Okay, okay...

Three hints. "Mutisi" does not mean "said", it means something else. "Kuninkaiden" is a form of "kuningas" which means king. "Varomattomia" is a form of "varomaton" which means heedless or careless.

Ha! That caught me off-guard.

From king and heedless and pojat, then "mutisi" which means muttered or murmured, I went looking in The Passing of the Grey Company, then I realized there's a Finn who lives on the floor below me.

"Few now remember them,' Tom murmured, 'yet still some go wandering, sons of forgotten kings walking in loneliness, guarding from evil things folk that are heedless."

Okay, here comes a small hint. I'll give you another hint in a few days if this doesn't help. "Kädellä" and "kätesi" are forms of the word "käsi" which means hand.

Hee. Not the most obvious one, I know. But so many people speak Spanish, I figure it evens out.

Aieeeeeeeeeee now I know EXACTLY what it means, and how it goes in English and in Finnish, but I cannot recall who says it to whom and I know I should. Ilya, you're killing me!

Based on my smattering of Latin, I can translate about half of that.

I know!!!!!!!!!!!!! Will you accept an incorrect translation because I don't have an English Sil? I'll check it from my Finnish one and give you the names (if they're the ones I think they are) and some version in bad English (I can translate from Finnish to English better than from Spanish to English...)

Is that some sort of edited version? Because I was thinking of Ulmo to Turgon: (my bad translation, underlined the part in your quote) "But when this danger approaches, then someone will come from Nevrast to warn you, and from him, through ruin and fire, will be born a hope to Elves and Men." More or less?

Aww, Lommy, I'm sorry this is causing you so much stress, but that's not it at all.

This is so funny, because I just flipped to a page in my copy of the Sil and skimmed until I found a bit of dialog. Ulmo is not involved, I'll say that much. Also, cámara is a more archaic form of casa, if that helps.
