    how to translate this...

    Good evening,
    I'd like to expres easy this:"I cannot favor you, because the others will be discriminated", it's not in the dictionary.I tried to tackle this by "get the raw deal" or "miss out" but I'm not certain. In Czech it is ""how will the others come if I decide this way?".

    Thanks in advance, Jiri.

    If you favor one, the others will feel slighted.

    How about:

    I cannot favour you, because it would not be fair to the others.

    Re: how to translate this...

    To preserve your original wording, you could say 'I cannot favor you, because the others will feel discriminated against'.

    Please note that a better title would have been 'I cannot favor you'.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
