Found in Translation

Found in Translation is back.  This time we are partnering with artist and amateur 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 Finnish, instead of saying “I’ll go out even if it rained cats and dogs”, they sometimes use the old saying “Menen ulos vaikka sataisi ämmiä äkeet selässä” which literally means “I’ll go out even if it rained bitches/hags with harrows on their backs”.

What is it in your language?
