Latin Translation: I Found It
Dear Latin Teacher,
How would you say "I found it", please.
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.
