Help with a translation into Elvish
Submitted by cimmerian_jedi on Tue, 2007-04-17 21:23.
Hello to all,
I have just joined this website and a fine site it is too.
I was wondering if someone here would be able to help me with a "hopefully" simple request.
I am hoping to get a tatoo of some quenya on my arm. I say Quenya, what I probably mean to say is some Tengwar.
I was wanting to translate the phrase "Not all who wander are lost."
Firstly, is is possible to translate this into Elvish and if so what would that be? Also how would I write it into Tengwar for use as a tatoo? Considering that this tatoo would be seen as a form of elvish inscription I figured that Quenya would be the correct language to use as apposed to Sindarin as it is the more formal language used for writings of poetry and lore etc.. Am I right in this thinking?
I hope someone can help me with this, I'm a little stumped myself. I shall be eternally grateful and will hapiily post the picture of the taoo when it gets done.
