LIVESTRONG in Greek letters is ΛΙΒΣΤΡΟΝΓΚ. Not a translation, right? Just the way you would write it in Greek. (Not that I could translated it.)

Hello there,

No. 1 & 2 are correct periphrastic renderings

No. 3 is a translitaration

Hi, could anybody help me translate "live strong" into greek?

I have found two different answers on the net "ζήστε ισχυρός" and "ζουν ισχυρή" and don´t know which one is the correct one. My friend has got cancer and would like to tattoo this phrase as it makes him remember that every day is a fight and that he has to live to the fullest! Thanks! /N

Hi Natushka! :)

I'm not quite sure this is exactly what you want (maybe you would like something in ancient Greek I mean) but I'll give it a shot!

"Live Strong" is a fight-the-cancer campaign with cyclist Lance Armstrong as the top person promoting and advertising the famous yellow bracelet.

In modern Greek it would be something like ζήσε δυνατά.

BTW Your friend must be a real fighter, it does take a lot of courage to do that. Wishes for all the best.

The LIVESTRONG Bracelet is a yellow silicone gel bracelet launched in May 2004 as a fund-raising item for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, founded by cyclist and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong. The bracelet itself was developed by Nike and their ad agency Wieden+Kennedy.
