Ritterling project
#1
I got internet access in my new house, so it's about time the RA.com projects got kickstarted back into life.<br>
For the Ritterling project, I have received several texts that need proofreading. Anyone willing please contact me at JasperATromanarmy.com.<br>
Also, I believe there are several proofreaders who've had plenty of time to read by now. Could they please send at least a progress report, but preferably a fully read text? <p>Greets<br>

legiones IIII Martia and IIII Parthica (smaller ones) are ready for proof-reading, IIII Scythica is in progress, but will need some time (my broken arm ...)<br>

Avete omnes,<br>

I am just translating the text to legio VI Hispana. This legion is referred in one source as <em>'IIIIII His(pana)</em>' - instead of VI His(pana) with six (!) vertical lines. In German these vertical lines are called '<strong>Haste</strong>' in singular form, plural: 'Hasten'. Sounds a little bit like the latin word '<em>hasta</em>' for the Roman spear, BTW; I don't know if there is any connection ...<br>
<br>
So my question is: does anybody in the forum know the correct English word for the vertical line '<strong>Haste</strong>' - neither in the Internet translation tool 'Altavista - Babelfish' nor in my 'Langenscheidt translation-book' I found any reference for this word. As I want to translate as correct as possible - any suggestions?<br>

Actually, I believe it's a direct borrowing of Latin <em>hasta</em>, and that's what's used in English - 'hasta'. <p></p><i></i>

Thank You, Danno<br>
<br>
so the plural form in English is '<strong>hastas</strong>'?<br>

I've seen both 'hastas' and 'hastae'; personally, I think the latter is more elegant. <p></p><i></i>

Thank You again, Danno,<br>

I take 'hastae'. That is what makes this forum so attractive - asking for help and immediately getting a solution from a distant continent.<br>

PS: just a funny example how the internet translation tool sometimes works, when it does not know the Original word - I wanted to translate the German word 'Lustration' (from the latin '<em>lustratio</em>') - the tool divided the unknown word into the German words 'Lust' and 'Ration' and translated 'desire ration' ... <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p200.ezboard.com/bromanarmytalk.showUserPublicProfile?gid=uwebahr>Uwe Bahr</A> at: 6/17/04 8:05 am<br></i>

Currently converting the Ritterling project to the new design and MySQL database, which will allow for online editing by translators, proofreaders and editors.
