Hello,

I am planning on getting a tattoo in Irish and paid for a professional translator service online, however they did not indicate dialects and I don't think it is correct. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could review the translation and help me in this matter. Please, if you wouldn't mind reviewing the following.

"With a spine of steel and a roar like thunder, I will rise."

The professional service gave me the following translation:

"Agus dromlach cruach agam agus búir thoirniúil asam, éireoidh mé."


Thank you very much for your time!

It says "Having a steel spine and emitting a thunderous roar, I will rise."

I don't think it is too bad considering that you inevitably have to change some grammar between languages ...

Looks okay to me. Would anyone else like to weight in on this? Have I missed anything?

I think it is perfectly nice.
Ending the sentence with 'mé' feels undesirable to me in a poetic way. I would have tried to avoid it. But I think that is just a personal thing. You can enjoy it as is :)
