halo,
I'm trying to tr*nsl*t* the phrase: "They watch over from Heaven"
As of right now I have : "Tha 'd ri faire o Nèamh"
I feel as if this could be improved, I would like it to be as idiomatic as possible If anyone could help it would be appreciated!

Tapadh leibh

The start are there especially to fool search spiders ;)

nèamh without capital n.

Do you have a context for the phrase?

...e.g., the capital H in Heaven suggests it might bea famous gay club in London, or some such.

It is for a t*tt**. half "Family lasts forever" will be in slovene my mothers native language and the other half "they watch over from heaven" in my fathers native language Gàidhlig. Both my mother and father have passed and it is in rememberance.

Well if it's for a t*tt**, I'd really suggest speaking to a professional tr*nsl*t*r -- preferably a native speaker -- rather than relying on the opinions of a bunch of happy amateurs on a free forum....

I agree with Níall. In this case, an expression using treòrachadh, dìon or cùmadh sùil air might be a better than faire. I don't know which one to pick though.

We have a list of translators: http://www.foramnagaidhlig.net/foram/vi ... =14&t=1262

They will of course take money for this, but so will the person who makes the t*tt** for you.
