Hi Everyone,
First off I´m not sure where to post this so if anyone wants to move my post, feel free. I thought of making it a Kudoz question but decided a forum would be more appropriate.
I am rush translating a series a short articles from Catalan and Spanish to English, the series starts with this quote:
“Els mercats són guerres resoltes en forma pacìfica; les guerres són el resultat de transaccions desafortunades” (Claude Lèvi-Strauss: Les estructures elementals dels parentiu).

I don´t want to translate the quote into English and have it be different than the official translation. However, I am having trouble finding the English version here in Barcelona, if anyone has it and could just quote me the above phrase I would really appreciate it. Or if you know where I might find it online. I must send this off Wednesday...

Many, many thanks,
Madeline.
