Can anyone give me the exact translation of Imladris?
Does it correspond exactly with "riven-dell" or is there a slightly different meaning? I think it is Sindarin, but I want to be absolutely sure before I write any scene with Elrond explaining the name of the valley.

: 'Rivendell' (literally, 'Deep Dale of the Cleft'), Elrond's dwelling in a valley of the Misty Mountains.
: a narrow valley with steep sides, in 'Imladris'.
It's all I can find at the moment, but I think it's Sindarin.

Yup, it's Sindarin.

If anyone is reading "Envinyanta" in Beta and wants to read the ironic word play Elrond commits in the naming of Imladris, much of part 7 was posted this afternoon.
