How do you translate 'my family is my life' into Latin?
Meus/mea familia est meus/mea vita.
There are no articles in Latin, either definite ("the") or indefinite ("a/an"). When you translate a sentence from English to Latin, the word "the" is omitted. When you translate from Latin into English, articles must be inserted to produce an idiomatic result; which articles are chosen depends on context and the translator's understanding of what the Latin is trying to say.
