I'm reaching out to any German speakers here on /int/. I need help with a translation:

Composta per festeggiare il sovvenire di un grand Uomo

This is part of the famous dedication from Beethoven's Third Symphony, which I want to include as an epigraph to a fic I'm writing; however, I want it to instead say

Composed to celebrate the memory of a great character

...without being some kind of weird transliteration (thanks anyway, Google Translate).

The fic satirizes the transformation of Rainbow Dash from a sympathetic character to a Peter Griffin-level jerkass, as demonstrated in season two (and, so far, in season three).

Any help is much appreciated.

Verfasst, um die Erinnerung an einen großartigen Charakter hochleben zu lassen.

best I can do so far, still sounds a bit odd... how about
In feierlichem Gedenken an einen großartigen Charakter verfasst
"composed in solemn memory of a great character"

For future, I personally like to use dict.cc, though there are some shit results in there too.

In that case I'd delete and reopen the thread, pal.

I'd expect something along the lines of
[...] di un grande personaggio
but I'm going on sparse knowledge of romanic languages in general here, and you should maybe re-check that.

I'm not sure what to make of your confusion of the language though. Is it all europeanese to you? :-D

Lol, we don't have very good language education here in the States (formally or otherwise); but I'm guessing you already knew that.

Thanks for the help. It might be difficult for me to 'check' something like that, though, as I am really interested in preserving the tone of the dedication, equally as much as the content.

I'd like to apologize to /int/ for my ignorance. It was certainly not my intention to offend.

Can this thread by deleted, please?

"Composta per celebrare la memoria d'un grande Personaggio"
