Can someone please translate this for me? I’ve had a piece of metal with this written on it for years but have no idea what it says! enter image description here

  • I assume that you have no background in Chinese? Even so, your writing is extremely legible, and a handwriting recognition app (e.g. Google Translate’s handwriting pad) will be more than enough to get the right characters. – droooze Dec 21 '18 at 17:15
  • I tried using that and it translated it to “Lutheran” which I didn’t think was right because my family has no Lutheran background – M.White Dec 21 '18 at 17:31
  • simplified characters: 信义 – user6065 Dec 21 '18 at 22:35

The text that you’ve copied off the metal is「信義」, which means (good) faith, as in the phrase acting in good faith. Translating the characters individually, it is「信」(belief) and「義」(morality, principles).
