I am struggling to find an accurate translation for “know your worth” from English to Irish. I have Irish ancestors and I am not fortunate enough myself to understand the language. I would really appreciate if somebody could help me by translating this phrase for me as it has great family value and I am looking to get it translated for a tattoo. Any help is incredibly appreciated, thankyou.
The closest I have got is the translation ” tá a fhios do fiú “ Remie Montgomery
Very tricky … “Aithnigh do luach”, as proposed by Éadaoin, sounds quite okay. It literally means “recognise your price”, I’m not sure if it has any connotations. Alternatively, you could say: “bíodh meas agat ort féin” (“respect yourself”), “ná déan beag is fiú díot féin” (“don’t belittle yourself”), “tá fiúntas ionat” (“you’re worth something”). Wait for more comments! 🙂
Maybe “bíodh fios do luacha agat” (lit. have knowledge of your worth), in addition to some of the other suggestions already made (except please please please don’t use “ta a fhios do fiu”, which is utter nonsense).
