That's Latin for "I want to take your place," Poor Twilight! You would've thought that the Princess's student would know Latin. :icontwilightshrugplz:

Let me just grab my dictionary...
Sumere - from Sumo, Sumere, Sumpsi, Sumptus: to take, to take up, to take hold of (present active infinitive)
Volo - Volo, Velle, Volui: irregular; to want (first-person singular present active indicative)
Locum - Locus, Loci: place, spot (accusative case)
Tuum - tuus, tua, tuum: possessive pronoun; your (neuter)

Now now, being a Latin student myself, I recognize one grammatical error in this sentence. 90% of the time, the verbs come last:
"Locum tuum sumere volo."

That's not so much a grammatical error as it is just odd word order. Word order in Latin generally doesn't matter grammatically, but rather it is mixed up for emphasis. Remember that Romans didn't use punctuation or italics or bold or such shenanigans and as such relied on word order.

This odd word order would sort of be like "I want /TO TAKE YOUR/ place," I think. Although the word order you have is more standard and probably better for general-use Latin like this (it isn't advanced Latin poetry, after all).

So, grammatically correct (which is more than I can say for most people who use Latin in MLP stories), possibly awkwardly-worded.

Sumere volo locum tuum, in latin means: I wanna hold your place. God bless saint google traductor XD

I want to TAKE, or ASSUME your place.

Hold would most likely be capere.

I wouldn't exactly call this "willing", willing implies both knowledgeable, and not under duress, in this case, I think that classified as a 'wish', since she said she wanted to take the pony's place, she did, just like how Twilight granted Trixie's wishes, why the pony did not just ask Twilight to say "I wish for you're freedom, or something, however, is a point that needs to be addressed.

The crystal didn't know if Twilight knew about Genies or not, so better safe than sorry to mask a deceitful wish in an ancient language.

but why not ask her to say something along the lines of "Volo libertatem tuam"?

Well, being tricked into switching positions is a tried and true classic to mythology. She may not have been willing to be turned into a genie, but she did want to help.

Though you have a point by saying it was probably a wish. That fits the genie theme better, I just like my answer. >_>
