Question
Would you please translate from English to Latin-

"Even in death, there is life."

Answer
Hello,

“In ipsa morte, vita” is the best translation for “Even in death, there is life”.

Please note that Latin prefers to omit the verb “est” meaning “there is” as this verb is often implied in Latin sentences.

Best regards,

Note that:

-Even = IPSA (ablative feminine singular of IPSE agreeing with MORTE)
-in  = IN (preposition which takes the ablative case)
-death= MORTE (ablative singular of MORS, 3rd declension)
-there is = EST (3rd person singular of the verb SUM).Such a verb is omitted in Latin.
-life = VITA (subject in the nominative singular, 1st declension)
