Latin to English: The Aeneid, Book 1, lines 1-7
Source text - Latin arma uirumque cano, Troiae qui primus ab oris
Italiam fato profugus Laviniaque uenit
litora multum ille et terris iactatus et alto
ui superum, saeue memorem Iunonis ob iram,
multa quoque et bello passus, dum conderet urbem
inferretque deos Latio; genus unde Latinum
Albanique patres atque altae moenia Romae.
Translation - English I sing of arms and the man, who first from the coasts of Troy, exiled by fate, came to Italy and Lavinian shores, having endured great hardship both on land and at sea on account of wrath from above, resulting from Juno's persistent rage, and having endured much at war in order to found a city and bring his gods to Latium; from where arose the Latin race, the Alban fathers and the walls of lofty Rome.
