    catch 22

    How wuold you translate "Catch 22" in a dialogue?
    The quote is:
    "Carch 22 - I am sorry!"
    Is there any translation or we use the symbolic meaning?

    Re: catch 22

    A Catch-22 is a situation in which you're doomed to lose.

    I don't know about other languages, but its English translation is "catch-22".

    Other terms (see the Wikipedia article) don't quite capture the precise situation".
