Checking Accuracy of Japanese Translation


Recommended Posts

I've had the same phrase translated by a couple of different paid services but they don't all have the same results. Is there anyone who is a native Japanese speaker who can translate this for me so that I can verify accuracy of it?  誰も信じるな

Not a native here, but I know what it says: I believe/trust nothing.

The "I" part can be anything else too (you, he, she, it, etc.), due to the lack of subject (nothing to worry about, it's a natural thing to do in Japanese).
誰 = who, but 誰も = nobody.
信じる = to believe or to trust, and some more.
Adding the な particle turns the verb into a negative form, although it's casual as fuck (more info).

It says "Do not trust/believe anyone"

In Romaji it reads "(誰)Dare (も)mo (信じるな)Shinjiruna"

Daremo > Anyone/Anybody

Shinjiru > Believe

-na(suffix) > Do not
