    Aight, here's an easy test. Tell me what language this is, where it is from and what it translates into, and you get a prize!!!

    Estuans interius
    Ira vehementi.

    HINT: Words have been taken out of this song because it is too obvious, and it is a song.

    Well until the last phrase I was thinking Latin. That last bit looks Japanese though!

    Still working on it...

    Edit:

    OK. I found the lyrics online, along with the missing words. It is Latin. I also know the context. It has to do with Sephiroth.

    The translation needs more research, but the 1st phrase is "Burning inside with bitter rage".

    Where is my prize? :D

    It doesn't look like Japanese, I would know! *grin* Yes It's not Japanese... In Japanese, its consanent, vowel, all the time. You never see a consanent by its self, or two in a row (at least hardy ever) but you will see vowels beside each other. Mert, you are to weird, and Han, you need help, you scare me!

    Ps I know I cant spell, get over it!

    Get off your high horse Boba, we know you only got the name of the song because I told you it! But yes, that is the name of the song, so we've got latin, and the name. All we need now is someone to put up the translation, and they get the prize!

    OK, well since I apparently did win, I'll pick the next translation quiz:

    Translate the word Gildirion giving the name of the language, it's origin and meaning.

    Nope. Nothing to do with blacksmithing. And Han, guessing which language is part of my puzzle.
