English term or phrase: write the truth
My son is writing a paper for school where he must "invent" his family's coat of arms. He would like to include the saying "write the truth" in Latin at the bottom of the coat of arms. He loves to read and write and this is the saying he's like to appear at the bottom. This is a 5th-grade project.

verum scribe

latin is a very concise language and that's the translation.
verum = the truth, literally what is true (adj.)
scribe = write, imperative of the verb scribere
