    Default cut one's losses

    Hola, soy nuevo en el foro.

    Buscaba una traducción para este término, ya que las dos que encuentro en la red no me convencen:

    "Cortar por lo sano"

    "retirarse, antes de tener más perdidas".

    Gracias.

    Thanks Hebe!

    I'm afraid I didn't make myself clear!

    What I do want is a Spanish expression for the idiom:

    To cut one's losses.


    Thanks anyway.

    Not at all CHupito. It was my fault. What I would like to know is the context in which you are using the expression so I can help you better. Are you using it as a slang? Becasue the plain translation of the phrase is "reducir pérdidas". However if you are using it as an idiomatic expression I would need some context to pick up the right phrase

    Bets regards

    I agree with Hebe, "reducir pérdidas" is a good choice.

    Do you think it could be "minimizar pérdidas" as well?
