    Default What is the french for FIDGET?

    Hi,

    I am trying to translate "Fidget" and "Twirl" in French CANADA.
    Context: Marketing materials for a fidget cube.

    What I have so far is:
    Fidget= Tripoter-Agiter
    Twirl= Pivoter

    These two words are part of the slogan: "SPIN-TWIRL-FIDGET"

    What do you think?

    Fidget is one of those specific words that don't have a direct translation... at least, I don't think you can find ONE word to translate it.

    I wonder how we can translate it in Spanish too.

    "Fidget"
    To move or act restlessly or nervously

    Como dice Maximiliano, es difícil traducirlo con una sola palabra. Sugerencias: moverse nerviosamente, juguetear (con el pelo, en una silla, etc.), estar intranquilo/inquieto

    En contexto, veo 3 verbos de movimiento.

    "Spin"
    To revolve rapidly

    "Twirl"
    To revolve rapidly

    Girar - Dar vueltas - Revolver

    Creo que juguetear es la palabras que más se le acerca en español.
