English to Latin Translation: I've Been Everywhere

by Mac
(Salem, OR USA)

Dear Latin Teacher,


What is the translation in Latin for "I've been everywhere?"


Mac,

Literal translation from English to Latin never works out so well in Latin. We must take the main idea of the English sentence and try to reproduce it in Latin idiom.

With that in mind, you might try this: omnes per gentes vectus sum. Translated back into English this Latin phrase means "I have been carried through all nations/peoples".

The literal ubique fui sounds awkward in Latin - but if you want literal, there it is.

Hope this helps and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.

Sincerely,

John
