Found in Translation

Found in Translation is back.  This time we are partnering with artist and amateur  l linguist Jen Giacalone

In this section, we take a well known phrase from another language, then find the equivalent saying in English.

If your language has an alternative version, we would love to know, so post it in the comments!

So, this week’s saying is:

In Dutch, you don’t say “The cat’s out of the bag”, you say “Nu komt de aap uit de mouw”, which means “Now the monkey comes out of the sleeve”.

What do you say in your language?

This week’s illustration is a #MemeMonday throwback. See the things you miss by not following us on Facebook?
