Need an idiom
Hi, I'm new to this forum, right now I am struggling through a translation of a sci-fi text into English. The text has many idioms in it that I can't pick up an equivalent for.
For example, when someone's saying an idiom (in the language of the original) that means that someone's ship has crushed what would a native English speaker say?
Of course, I can just write: It appears, their ship has crushed. But I want it to be more colloquial.
Can any native speaker help me with this?
Re: Need an idiom
Welcome to the forums.
Sorry - just need to be sure of what you mean. Do you mean the ship crashed or that the ship was crushed?
