Art Project - 03-05-2017, 02:20 PM

Hi! I've got some kind of an art project and one of the things it includes is some writing in Japanese. I know how complicated the language is and that the order of the letters and such things may change the meaning of everything written. So i don't want just google translete it, you know, it would be embarassing to have something completely different from something you imahine being wrotten on your products. So, ehat i need is the phrase 'DEAD MARVIN'. I'm pretty sure that Marvin is マーヴィン, but what do i need to add to make the phrase complete? Thank you very much in advance, i hope you can sort me out.

When translated word by word, it would be "死んだマーヴィン:SHINDA MARVIN". But it is not natural Japanese.

To make complete translation, I should know the information behind the scene.

What do you want to tell to whom by the phrase?
Do you miss marvin ? Or are you happy at his death?

Language makes Culture and Culture makes Language.
