    *I don't know if this is the right place for this thread as it's the first time I've needed a translation of a phrase into Latin, please feel free to move if it's in the wrong place!*

    TSR Latin linguists I would be grateful if you could suggest the best way to translate this phrase into Latin,

    Evil will prevail when good men do nothing
    it's probably very straightforward and asking the equiv. of 1 + 1, but having never had the joy of studying Latin I don't know,

    Thanks,

    Tom

    A good place to get a the translation would be on WikiAnswers - they have a Latin section where you can get people to translate for you.

    Malum regnabit quamdiu nihil agiunt homines boni.


    Very obvious and not very Ovidlike, but it should do.

    I would say:

    Malum regnabit ubi nihil faciant boni vires.

    I'd go for:

    malum valebit viris bonis nihil agentibus
