German term or phrase: das Maß aller Dinge
J'ai un problème de formulation. Comment traduiriez-vous das Maß aller Dinge dans cette phrase:
"Als für dieses Buch die ersten Zeilen geschrieben wurden, lag das Maß aller Dinge bei 1001 Pferdestärken".
"Au début de la rédaction de ce livre, 1 001 chevaux correspondaient à l’état de la technique/constituaient la borne de repère/la référence" ?
