Latin term or phrase: can you translate the entire sentence?
Horum omnium fortissimi sunt Belgae, propterea quod a cultu atque humanitate provinciae longissime absunt, minimeque saepe mercatores ad eos commeant, atque ea, quae ad effeminandos animos pertinent, importatnt; proximique sunt Germanis, qui trans Rhenum incolunt, qubuscum continenter bellum gerunt.

Yes, I can

Of all these, the Belgae are the bravest, because they are furthest from the civilization
and refinement of [our] Province, and merchants least frequently resort to them, and import those things which tend to effeminate the mind; and they are
the nearest to the Germans, who dwell beyond the Rhine, with whom they are continually waging war; for which reason the Helvetii also surpass the rest
of the Gauls in valor, as they contend with the Germans in almost daily battles...

As others said, a copy of Caesar's Gallic Wars would help you a lot.
