para além da sua idade


Explanation:
Concordo com a Heloísa e também gostaria de ver o enquadramento geral desta frase. No entanto, poderei apresentar algumas opções exemplificativas:

a) Pouco mais se sabe a seu respeito... "para além da sua idade".
b) É uma pessoa com pouco a seu favor... "para além da sua idade".
c) É demasiado esperto... "para a sua idade".

Espero ter ajudado!

"he undrestood galaxies far away and was wise beyond his years".
A interpretação desta frase é a seguinte:
"ele tinha uma enorme percepção das coisas e era demasiado sensato para a sua idade".
