Hello, I need to translate to Japanese symbols the latin expresion "Carpe Diem" that means "live the moment" or "enjoy the moment"...and I also need the transalation to Japanese symbols of this word "LIFE"..

It would be great to have a good web with images of Japanese symbols too..

Thanks.

Regards from Madrid...

    Hi! I checked my Japanese-English dictionary, it says for Carpe Diem is "この日をつかめ" or ”今日を楽しめ” or "この日をとらえよ”, but I would say."今を生きよ”since these translations seems to be a little bit strange to me.

    The web page of carpe Diem in the prior message seems to be chinese.

    Life is in japanese "人生”  If you talk about the death or life then it is ”生命” or ”命”.

    I hope this will be some help.

    Smiles,
    Lin

    I think "この日をつかめ" is awkward - it's a direct translation, really ("seize this day"), but I don't think anyone would say that in Japanese. I agree with Lin, "今を生きよう" or "今を生きて" would be best. It means something along the same lines ("Live the present / Live in the now"). Kind of a "go for it" message.
