German term or phrase:So gewinnen Sie auf jedem Terrain
Looking for neat or cleaver ideas for a slogan to go in advertising material. It concerns a crawler excavator and is meant to express its versatility and capabilty to operate anywhere, anytime and make money (gewinnen).
My colleague and I have got as far as thinking of "win on any ground", without being entirely convinced by that. Any bright ideas out there?
I don't yet know what the client has chosen, but I have put forward "A ground-breaking winner" and "Always on the winning track" as two very strong suggestions - and I also like Bernhard's idea. I am sure the client will be much impressed with the groundbreaking idea! Many thanks to all. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: How about turning it around and implying the "gewinnen" part instead of using it directly? Something like: "with the xxx, no ground can defeat you," or something along those lines.
I don't mean to jump on Victor's back here, but I definitely agree that "soil" and "earth quality" might also be good candidates. If those words are the reason for your final choice, I would give him the points.
