Hello everyone.

I am trying to get this quote turned to Old English to print on shirts, and want to make sure that everything is alright with the translation.


The original quote is:

"Fear and Panic in the Air,
I want to be Free"

after doing my best using the online translator i came up with:

"fÆr and frihtau in sé æðm
I ungleáwscipe æt béon fréomæg"

Any help would be much appreciated, I don't know much about the rules for Old English.

and Panic didn't translate so i used its closest synonym; Frighten


Thanks in advance!!!!

    Welcome, Taz:)

    fær and fryhto in þæm lyfte
    ic wille freo beon

    You'd better wait for an expert, though, as my Old English tends to be a bit hit-and-miss. (Correction: very hit-and-miss).

    Maybe you could contact the English Language department of a university and ask someone who teaches Old or Middle English. I suppose it doesn't happen to them that often, and so they would probably be happy to help you.
