Sananlaskujen käntääminen

Post by marceliny » Mon Apr 18, 2016 6:22 pm

Hei kaikki,

Opiskelen suomea Prahassa ja tarvitsen kääntää kolme sananlaskua suomesta englantiin tai selittää, mistä ne ovat.

Jos joku puhuu vioistasi, kerro hänelle loputkin.
Kerro terveisii, kehu minnuu...
Kevät on tullut sano poika kun pihamaalla kaksikerroksisen kissan näki


Olisi hyvä, jos joku voi auttaa minua.

Kiitos

The first one means: If someone speaks about your demerits, tell him the rest.
The second one means: Please give my best regards, praise me.
And the last one: Spring is here, said a boy when he saw a two-storied cat. (This make no sense :D)

But sorry for my bad English, i can't speak it so well D:

“A two-storied cat” is probably a tongue-in-cheek reference to a pair of copulating cats.

I do not recall hearing any of those before so I’d be willing to say these are not too common sayings. Or maybe they’re popular only in a particular region.
