Could you translate " Detect, Defend, Deter" from eng to latin. Looking to use this phrase in the context of a security company, so I would like a catchy sounding version, as long as reasonably verbatim.

Hello Chriskay-ga, I used an online Latin Dictionary for translation. http://www.archives.nd.edu/cgi-bin/lookdown.pl?detect Detect translates to Deprendo (To detect) Defend translates to Defendo (To defend or protect".) Deter translates to Deterreo (To frighten off , deter, discourage] So, it would be Deprendi, Defendi, Deterrui. I Detect, I defend, I deter.

The answer is slightly incorrect. Deprendo is "I detect." Defendo is "I defend." Deterreo is "I deter." If you want the infinitive verb forms it would be: Deprendere ("to detect") Defendere ("to defend") Deterrere ("to deter") The verb forms in the answer are actually from the perfect (i.e. "past") tense and so would translated to: I detected ("deprendi") I defended ("defendi") I deterred ("deterrui") For the sake of a company motto, I'd think the infinitive forms would be elegant. ("Deprendere Defendere Deterrere") but you might also want to use the imperative voice to convey a command, if that's what you're going for. But realize that the answer as given in the answer is not exactly accurate...
