In how many languages are you planning to post this?

Alternative katharevousa translation by Konstantinos Mousouris: ουκ ημήν νεκρός ούτε ζων

Io non morì e non rimasi vivo;
pensa oggimai per te, s'hai fior d'ingegno,
qual io divenni, d'uno e d'altro privo.
Dante: Inferno XXXIV

  • Words ail me.
This immortal line from Dante deserves to remain alive in its original language, rather than being forced artificially into a dead language.  More appropriate would be a good translation into a living language like modern Greek:  https://www.translatum.gr/forum/index.php?topic=346390.msg25328#new
