These are the languages that I can translate into:

  • Quenya Archaic, Exilic, and Gondorian dialects – Plenty of vocabulary and a mostly complete grammar.
  • Sindarin Archaic, Exilic, Doriathren, Woodelven, and Gondorian dialects- Plenty of vocabulary and a fairly complete grammar.
  • Adûnaic – Limited vocabulary and a limited grammar.

These are the scripts that I can write with.

  • Tengwar, Classical Mode
    Quenya: Hlassen nairea linderya mi laicatauresse.

    Sindarin: Lastannen i lind dhem dîn mi Eryn Lasgalen.

    English: I heard her sad song in Greenwood.
  • Tengwar, Mode of Beleriand (Sindarin Only) Lastannen i lind dhem dîn mi Eryn Lasgalen.
  • Cirth (Sindarin Only) Lastannen i lind dhem dîn mi Eryn Lasgalen.

Payment

All translation requests are free for monthly donators. Otherwise, I charge thusly:

  • A Character’s Names: $10 per a character
    For all of the names for one character in Sindarin, Quenya, or Adûnaic.
  • Cirth/Tengwar: $5 per a word.
    Lines of poetry, random phrases, names, words written with Tengwar or Cirth. Transcriptions will be sent in the form of PDFs unless requested otherwise.
  • Line Translation: $20 per a line.
    Translations of lines of poetry, dialogue, random phrases into Sindarin, Quenya, or Adûnaic. A line is about 10 words or 2 sentences long, and a 1 line of poetry = 1 line.
  • Word Translation: $1 per a word.
    A word translated into Sindarin, Quenya, or Adûnaic.
  • Your Name Translated: $5 per a name.
    Our-World names translated into Sindarin, Quenya, or Adûnaic. Price is per the name, so for a first name and surname, each would count as a separate name.
