I'm involved in a project that requires Latin wording. Has anyone got a good knowledge of Latin?
Using Google will not help me, as Latin words can have more than one meaning.

This is a military related project, so the translations have to be in a military sense, if you see what I mean.

Sceptre's reply looks close.

good luck though. Am sure if there are language translators online there might be one for Latin?

It would be a tad embarrassing for me if the wording was incorrect for this project.

OK then, I'm no expert so I'll try to write more or less exactly what was said on the phone. If you're describing soldiers then "vis" suits well for strength. "ferocitas" translates as courage in the sense of fighting bravely, "fortitudo" has a similar meaning but doesn't flow so well. Sacrifice is a bit tricky as Latin concentrates mostly on offerings to the gods-type sacrifice, but "caritas" comes close, literally meaning dearness or high price. So the suggestion I've been given is "vis et ferocitas et caritas", but not reading Latin myself I can't give any guarantees.
Just to let you know, the correct translation was :
VIS - VIRTUS - DEVOTIO
