English term or phrase: Knowledge is power
This is on a billboard here in town and I want to know if it is an accurate translation.

Scientia est potentia
Explanation:
Well, yes. It is an accurate translation. "Scientia" in Latin means Knowledge and not "Science".
est = is
potentia = power

Did this at school... :)
