Amicus tuus mingit si ming, seu minger finga
or perhaps
Si amicus tuus mingit, minga, seu mingere finga:

can please anyone say, what it means in, e.g., English?

P.S.:
I am not sure whether the words are correct;
and I could not find information in books or web (there is sth. in Check?, but I do not understand).

Hello Kefa,
Not 100% sure about the translation since I don't have my usual Latin dictionary with me and I think the proper forms should be "minge" and "finge", but what I get from your sentence is a bit odd ;-) :
"If your friend urinates, urinate ou pretend to urinate".
Any idea of the context?

Hello SandraM,
thanks.
It,s from a Slovenian Forum (it might make sense; as for the meaning: perhaps like a Slovenian proverb: If you are with wolves, you must bark with them; I guess English must have a similar saying.)
Please try and find out exact spelling, if you can.

Off the top of my head, I'd say "Si amicus tuus mingit, minge, seu mingere finge"
Good luck with your Latin endeavours and see you soon on the forums
