Default How would you write...

"one for all
all for one"

...in Tau?
I'm not expert in Tau, so my tries are kind of pathetic.
The simplest way is to just write it in english with Tau letters.
But there are better ways, I'm sure of it.

So, some help?

isn't that pretty much the idea behind the greater good? Tau'Va I think is how its written.

Other than a direct translation using the alphabet in the codex, I think they'd probably use that.

yes, yes...
however, I want to put it in a more terrenal way.
I'm playing with the old 3 Musketters motto and applying it to my Tau Patrol.
I want to reflect the Ta'Lissera without using directly the word.
Making it a little more informal...

I can use La'Rua (team) in place of "All"
"Y" goes for One
But no idea what to use for "for".
Or something... ???

That was good, but usually catch phrases are shorter and more to the point.

Monat = "the power of one", but Mon = "black", so we can infer that one (as in "individual") is either M' or Mona' (or perhaps both, depending upon usage. Just not "Mon").

Many = He

Therefore, as a shortened catch phrase version, one could write it as either:

M'He He'Mona (a justified shortening of the first word) or -

Mona'He He'Mona.


I prefer the former.

Not bad, not bad!

Both options are great.
But TauberAlles is right, in this case, shorter is better.

M'He
He'Mona

That I can imagine been shouted by the troops.
The Shas'Ui says: M'He!
The Shas'Las answer: He'Mona!
Is a good oat.

Thanks!

But I'm not in a rush, keep them coming!
