Latin translation:Tradutore, traditore
Explanation:
This is the way you say this in Italian. It's the only proverb of this kind I know.

I don't know where you got the story with the Roman emperor.

agree  Sandra van Bijsterveld: I couldn't find a Latin version either, only Italian. Shouldn't it be traduttore?
