    Default Not exactly a translation...

    ...but a "claim" for an ad. I´d like to know if it sounds good and makes sense in english. Obviously, it is for a languages school. There it goes:

    Languages for life

    TIA

    So, if none of the above is your company, I suggest to find another ad or you may end up paying royalties, in the best case.

    Default Sounds OK to me

    I'd say that "Languages for life" sounds just fine :-)

    I'm a native speaker of English, and Language for Life (I would capitalize Life too) sounds good to me. But SandraT above points out that others are already using this slogan.
