Found in Translation

Found in Translation is our weekly(ish) segment where we work with our friends at Ammy’s Delight to learn a Dutch saying, and find out if it has an equivalent in English.  It’s fun to find out what we all have in common, so why not get in touch, either on Facebook, Twitter or right here in the comments section, and tell us what it is in your language?

So, this week’s saying is:

LEVEN ALS KAT EN HOND

Which literally translates as:

LIVE AS CAT AND DOG

But in context is used for when people are always arguing.

And of course, in English we say:

FIGHTING LIKE CATS AND DOGS

What is it in your language?
