Subject:"Runify" a slogan?
Time:05:27 pm
I have this idea of writing my 'motto' in runes on a custom-made ring. To do that, it seems necessary to translate in to Old Norse (or runic Swedish) first... Can anyone help me out or at least point me to a right direction?

The motto is quite simple: "I refuse to fail". If you need a context, it's a simplified version of "Victory comes not from being the fastest or the strongest, but from refusal to fail".

Linguaphile guys translated it to Icelandic - "Ég neita að tapa", but advised to ask you for a more authentic wording.

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

Well, technically there is no double negative - given that you maintain the wording, i.e. don't substitute "refuse" with "don't want" or "fail" with "not succeed".
