Translation help please

Post by greenj09 » Feb 18, 2015 2:33 am

Hey guys,

I'm looking to get a Cantonese translation for the phrase 'Strength, loyalty and respect'.
Looking to get the characters for a tattoo on my back.

Any help would be great, many thanks
:)

Cantonese and Mandarin are generally written the same, so it will be universal.

You can order your tattoo templates here:

See the links on that page for free samples so you can see how the templates work, and if this is the right service for you.

You seem to be asking for a "word list". This is not a natural language construction in Asian languages. Most of the time, a phrase with subject, verb, and object is desirable and natural. Single words are also OK. However, random word lists feel a big awkward to native speakers. I just want you to make an informed decision.
