Dutch term or phrase: beestachtig (hier; dubbele betekenis)
Heeft iemand nog inspiratie? Ik zoek een betere vertaling voor 'beestachtig' in zeer positieve zin. De vertaler heeft er 'fantastically' van gemaakt, maar daarmee gaat de dubbele betekenis verloren:

* 'Beestachtig' * goede sprekers
* Fantastically * good speakers
Day chairman, Ben Tiggelaar, opened with the thesis: 'My colleagues are like dolphins, but perhaps with a little more hair.' Jan Kloosterman, vice president at Sara Lee, continued the comparison between animals and business with a funny parable in which cats appear as symbols for the research and development department. 'Can you change a cat into a herd animal?' he asks.

Bedankt!
