Question ID: 785435
I'm developing recommendations for a tagline to a corporation's
internal educational seminars for its marketers.  One of the ideas
they'd like pursued is a "higher education" idea ... i.e., a University,
an Academy, a Symposium ... but they want it to seem advanced.
NOT like these execs are going BACK to high school or college.
More that they are fortunate to have the chance to gain advanced insights.
i.e., it's a "compliment" to one's potential to be invited to these workshops,
the OPPOSITE of remedial learning.

Client interested in ways to suggest an advanced university format,
and one technique we're considering is to translate the tagline into
Latin -- as is used on many university and State seals.

Therefore - could I have the translation, please, of EACH of the phrases
below into Latin? (I'm assuming that "marketing" would remain "marketing"
even in a latin phrase??)

Generosity of any TIP for this work will take SPEED of response into account!

the phrases for translation:

Learning never stops.

	Knowledge is power.

	Great Marketing Matters.

	Great marketers create themselves.

	Higher education for marketplace triumph.

	Higher education for marketplace results.

	Greater skill and sharper insights.

	The chance to learn is the chance to grow.

	Mind over market.

	Wisdom from observation, innovation from insight.

Hi Mike!

Nice to see you here again.

Just a each phrase as a separate question. 

For example I know the translation for Knowledge is power but I can't
post it because I can't provide you with the other 9 translations.

Best regards,

i wish there were an easier way.
but i guess i could try that.
i just feel embarrassed at offering -- what? -- $5.00 a question?
i don't know if anyone will bother to answer.

maybe i'll post KNOWLEDGE IS POWER as one question
and all the rest as another question
WITH the proviso that i don't necessarily expect ALL phrases to be translated.

let me think for a few minutes ...what to do!

AND THANKS for the suggestion, no matter what.

Clarification of Question by mikeginnyc-ga on 25 Nov 2006 12:46 PST
actually, i've found the translation of knowledge is power myself -- 
Scientia est potentia --

so let me offer any researcher with familiarity with latin.

give me your "best shot" at the other phrases ...
just DON'T give me a translation you're not sure about.
(leave those blank.)

i won't be requiring EVERY phrase to be translated in order to pay.

hope that helps.

I'm thinking that the word and meaning of 'marketing', as used today,
may not have a suitable Latin counterpart. It's questionable whether
the concept existed in the past in the way that it's understood today.

i'd accept translations with "marketing" remaining in english.

Hi  mikeginnyc-ga -

It sounds like you have a great idea for your seminar.  I'm confidant
that I can fill the bill for you.

There is a basic Latin root for market which is NUNDIN.  With
different endings you can make marketplace, marketer, and marketing. 
So I think we're OK there.

However, if you want to use the English, you can just substitute for
the word with the "nundin" root.  You could say, if you wish,
Marketing magna mangnopere interest (second translation below).

Knowledge is power:    
            Scientia potentia est    (you found the correct Latin
words online, but the word order was incorrect)

Great marketing matters:  
            Nundinatio magna magnopere interest

Great marketers create themselves:  
            Nundinatores magni seipsos gignunt

Higher education for marketplace triumph: 
            Eruditio profundior nundinas vincit

Higher education for marketplace results: 
            Eruditio profundior pro exitu felice nundinis 

Greater skill and sharper insights:  
            Peritia major et perspicientiae subtiliores

The chance to learn is the chance to grow: 
           Opportunitas discendi opportunitas crescendi est

Mind over market:
           Mens superat nundinas

Wisdom from observation, innovation from insight: 
           Sapientia ex animadvertentia, innovatio ex perspicientia

You may find it interesting that the Roman root for market, nundin,
comes from "ninth day,"  which was the frequency of the Roman market
days. (scroll down to NUNDIN)

The translations were made with the help of a Latin scholar and
Cassell's Latin Dictionary.

Cassell's  Latin-English and English-Latin Dictionary revised by
J.R.V. Marchant, M.A. and Joseph F. Charles, B.A., Funk and Wagnell's
(New York)

I hope my answer will further your "advanced university format."
