    Default Please Help Me !!!

    Hey at all,
    at first i'm sorry for my bad englisch.
    i come from germany and want to have a tattoo which says "What goes around comes around" but i don't want this in the english language. I want it in Spanish because then, not everybody knows it and it sounds very nice.

    And so i want to ask you if you can tell me this in spanish.

    I've tried some translators from the internet, but i don't belive in it... so i hope somebody can help me here...

    / Translations from the internet are:
    "Lo que anda viene" or
    "Lo que se va vuelve" or
    "qué circunda viene alrededor"



    Thanks a lot!
    Jaqueline

    What you want to translate, will be something like: "Todo lo que sube tiene que bajar"

    why there are so many various translations?

    Are the translations
    ("Lo que anda viene" or
    "Lo que se va vuelve" or
    "qué circunda viene alrededor"
    ) wrong?

    Thank You

    It's like asking: why are there so many different ways of saying the same thing?

    Cool Re: Please Help Me !!!

    Regarding why there are so many possible translations.
    There's no exact translation so we look for other ways of expressing the same idea. If you don't know Spanish you may not be able to recognize the similarities in the suggested translations.

    To back translate to give you an idea:
    "Lo que anda viene" What goes comes. since it doesn"t really make sense in spanish to insert the word "AROUND' HERE, THIS IS ACTUALLY THE MOST LITERAL TRANSLATION.
    "Lo que se va vuelve" what leaves comes back.
    "qué circunda viene alrededor") wrong? This is an attempt at a word for word translation. I don't think this would be understood the way you mean it to be.
    "Todo lo que sube tiene que bajar" This is a perfect translation of the English expression "What goes up must come down." The idea is similar and it's an actual expression in Spanish.
    Maybe a native Spanish speaker would comment on whether any of how the first 3 attempts sound to them (natural or not natural in Spanish or whether they've heard them before)
