Due to Latin Knowldge I can easily explain each of these quoations.

First one must know how Latin works. Word order mean very little, a
very different idea that we all ENglish-speakers can understand,
hopefully. Latin consists of 5cases, Nominative, Genitive, Dative,
Accusative, and Ablative. The Vocative is also a case, but rarely
used, and celarly noicable when it is.

The nominative is the subject, and only the subject in latin.

The Genitive is the possessive, most of the time, and none of your
sentences include such abnormalities. Ussually translated with of.

The Dative is the indirect object. Normally translated as to/for, and
can be used as a Dative of AGent with certain verbs, where it is
translated as by.

The accusative is the direct object, not normally associated with any
particular endding.

The Ablative is the all purpose word, used with many prepositions, and
can be translated by itself as by/with/from.

The Vocative is the outspoken word, and is ussually translated as O....

Verbs, of which you have one, come in a variety of words, you call
into play the Future Indicative Active when you mention shall In your case, and with all 1st Conjugation verbs,, it is
the 2nd principal part, minus the -re, and adding -bi then personal

I - O
You(Sing.) -S
He/She/It - T
We- mus
You(Plural) - Tis
*They - nt However, with the future, translated as -bunt

Per, a prepostion, takes the case of the accusative, and not the ablative.

The Translations

Freedom through truth - Libertas per Veritatem

Safety through truth -Salus per Veritatem

Safety and freedom through truth -Salus et Libertas per veritatem

*The truth shall set us all free -Veritas Liberabunt omnes nostri.

*this is actually translated as The tructh shall set all of us free.
If you would like a more corrupt, literal translation of what you
said, Veritas Liberabunt Omnes nos.

Thank you, and this is an answer, but I dont know how to post answers,
so any help would be appreciated.

You and I as G-A users cannot post "answers".  Only authorized G-A
Reseachers, those whose names appear in blue, can do so and receive
the price (75% thereof).

What about:  Salus libertasque per veritatem    ?

Re: the first poster's translations

the truth shall set us free would be
'Veritas nos liberabit'

you can use 'omnis is e' if you want, but 'nos' is sufficient
my point is that 'veritas' is the nominative singular, and thus the
verb will be third person singular [future] which is 'liberabit', and
not 3rd person plural, which is 'liberabunt'

You are both right, and I cannot apologize enough for my lapse,
regarding the 3rd comment, it was a silly and unacceptable mistake.

In regards to Myoarin, thank you very much for the info.
