The closest matching phrase to the "Lie about one thing, lie about it all" in Latin is the phrase "Falsus in unum, falsus in omnibus" which means "False in one thing, false in all things". The legal phrase relates to people who lie being much more likely for the rest of their stories to be false, too. Meaning that whatever they say is probably a lie, which relates to the idea of a trial in a court, hence the "legal phrase" nature of the phrase.

The Latin language originates from Rome and is an Italic language, coming from those who lived in Ancient Rome. Like many languages from Europe, Latin derives from the Ancient Proto-Indo-European language, despite being seen to be a dead language, unlike other European languages that have stood the test of time. Instead, most people in Italy now have been brought up to instead speak Italian. It is seen as a religious language, with deep connotations with the Roman Catholic faith.

Even though the language is now barely used by most people around the world, it is still adopted by Christian clergies and is taught as a language in schools and universities, with some universities offering it as a degree. It is often used in the case of Law, where old terms and phrases are still kept in their traditional Latin form.

If you are looking to translate any future phrases into Latin, or any other language, you can visit a translator website such as:

• Yahoo's Babelfish

Here you can enter the text you wish to translate and choose your preferred language. Some websites even offer you the choice of paying them a small fee to find out exactly what your phrase would mean without any mistakes or translation errors. This is because most translation tools do it word by word instead of looking at the phrase and the grammar involved.
