Hi charltonian-ga -

Here is the translation of "Well, yesterday it was working"

                Jam, heri fauste gerebat

"Jam" means "well," and you can remove it without affecting the Latin that follows.

I consulted a Latin scholar for this translation.

Here are some websites that may interest you:

Google search strategy (for the above websites)

All the best,

the translation of "it worked yesterday" is "is opus prid"
