    Default working off a debt

    How would an Argentine express idea of working off a debt, as in: "Here's a way to work off your debt."? Anyone?

    Default Re: working off a debt

    Hi Philabiblion,
    I am not sure whether this phrase can have a figurative meaning. In Spanish, we use a similar phrase to reffer to a monetary debt1 or a favor2 or a fault3.
    Depending on that... I would say:
    1 Esa es otra forma de pagar tu deuda.
    2 Esa es otra forma de devolverme el favor.
    3 Con eso también puedes compensar tu error.

    Regards,

    In this context your form 1 would be appropriate.

    Thanks again clarab for your knowledge.

    "Lo podemos arreglar de otra forma" When you are asked for a bribe, or If someone makes a sexual propose in echange of money or a debt
