    I'm not sure Potestas is quite the fitting word in this case for the Latin translation. It is a reference more to political influence and force. I might sugggest 'ops - opis', which is more geared toward help and resources as well as might.

    So I think I would use "Scientia ops (est)"
    although I commend Anne for a perfectly viable translation as well.

    Valete! :)
