    Cool Yet

    I seem to have problems with the word 'yet' and this sentence:
    '186 workers and employees generate 36 millioneuros per year. Yet.'

    The background of this is the financial crisis and the 'yet' more
    or less is supposed to mean: 'for now' - things could worsen any
    time. Is the use of this 'yet' correct?

    No, it's not at all correct. Are you sure it's not meant to be 'net'?

    Re: Yet

    Thank you very much! That helped me a lot. And no, I am sure it was 'yet'. Must have been a mistake in the translation.
