Tá a reasonably good translation of the phrase.
That other nonsense is not.
There is nearly always more than one way to translate something and I'm cat melodeon at the auld spelling, so get confirmation if possible.

I agree with Gealún.
If I did not see the English version of this and someone said to me: 'Tá cumas gan teorainn ionam', I might look at them strangely but I would understand it as 'in/within me lies infinite/unlimited ability/potential'...
I would be asking questions about the other offering...

There are THREE threads for this same translation here on the site...
...nach diabhaltaí mór an chaoi a n-airím uaim mar aistritheoir na daoine a mbíodh an t-am agus an cur chuige agus an cumas agus an dúthracht chiúin álainn acu i mbun na hoibre deonaí modhnóireachta a dhéantaí ar an suíomh seo tráth!!
Three should agree on any translation.
Is ceart triúr a bheith sásta le haistriúchán ar bith a thabharfar.
