I'd like to have this phrase translated into Latin: "One thing, six different ways, every five minutes." The phrase has no real context, though what is meant by it is more like "One thing (to do), in six different ways, every five minutes. Also, the numbers are not figurative, it's a one, a six, and a five. Lastly, the shorter the finished product, the better.

Hi sciolio-ga Thanks for using Google Answers. You gave me eight words in English, and I'm giving you nine words in Latin. Short enough? English: "One thing, six different ways, every five minutes." Latin: Unicum quid, sexies autem ratione, quinto quoque primo perficiendum. (Literally: Only one thing, but in six different ways, to be completed every fifth minute) If you wanted it even shorter, you could leave out "perficiendum" (to be completed), but it wouldn't be idiomatic Latin.

I hope it suits your purposes. All the best, alanna-ga
