I can answer questions about the meaning, usage, and source of English vocabulary. I have no formal training in Latin. My experience with Latin consists of Latin Morphemes in word study. For Latin translations (or other translations) I recommend finding another expert. I'll do what I can to help, but am limited in these areas.
