Latin Translation: I Found It

by Anonymous

Dear Latin Teacher,


How would you say "I found it", please.


Dear Anonymous,

The simplest Latin translation is id inveni. It means exactly I found it or I came upon it or I discovered it. The verb invenire means to find or to come upon with or without a specific search.

If you mean, however, that you found something lost, or that you searched intentionally before finding it, then you may also use the verb reperire. In that case the Latin translation for I found it is id repperi.

To be sure, either verb works for this Latin translation. Use the one that sounds right to you.





Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.

Sincerely,

John
