Hello all,

I would greatly appreciate if someone who possibly speaks Irish Gaelic fluently could translate this phrase for a tattoo I'd like to get:

"Pain becomes strength"

Thank You so much,
Kyle Callaghan

One literal translation is

"Éiríonn pian neart."

I think there may be something more traditional or "Irish sounding" if I can find it.
You'll have to wait a bit.

Other people here may have some ideas.

That's a nice way to put it.

I also think "Leis an phian a thagann an neart" is a good way to put it.

Do they both mean the same exact thing? Pain becomes strength? This language is so hard to understand…

Éiríonn pian i neart. = Pain becomes strength. (lit.: Pain rises into strength)
Déanann neart den phian. = Pain becomes strength. (lit.: Strength makes [itself] from the pain)
Leis an phian a thagann an neart. = With pain comes strength. (lit: [it is] with the pain that comes the strength)

Both éirigh i (rise into) and déan de (make from) have the meaning "become"
and perhaps tar i (come into), too:

Tagann pian i neart. = Pain becomes strength. (lit.: Pain comes into strength)
