I\'ve got a question for the classically-educated. I\'m designing a logo for a company and they want a sentence in latin to say:
\"Your Healthcare Alternative...for a lifetime of wellness.\"
Can anyone figure this one out?

I\'m not a Latin expert and don\'t actively work with the Latin language, but… I would heartily suggest to your customer NOT to try to translate a \"modern, English-born and English-thought slogan\" into Latin.
Either they find a sentence born in Latin that can do the job, or they forget the Latin language.
Of course this is my personal opinion only!

I would rather not translate a modern English sentence into Latin, specially a marketing logo for a Company.
Most Latin comes from ancient texts and I think the result of translating that English sentence into Latin would be rather strange.
I agree with Marisa, why not trying to find a Latin phrase like Universities and other associations do?
