disagree  Victorița Ionela Duță: asta e un fel de traducere motamo, ceea ce e jalnic pentru traducatorii care se respecta; exista proverbe care pastreaza sensul

"what goes around, comes around."
bine faci, bine primesti


Explanation:
... si alte variante similare; eu am tradus mergand pe ideea de bine, dar poate fi si cu sens negativ. Fara context, nu am de unde sti.
O alta varianta in lb engleza este: "Good deeds bring fortune; bad deeds bring misfortune"

neutral  Maria Diaconu: proverbul românesc este "bine faci, bine găseşti"
1 hr
  -> :-) am reusit sa pun o "traducere" hibrid intre ce-mi amintesc eu din proverb si traducerea directa a variantelor in limba engleza ale expresiei de mai sus pe care le-am dezbatut la momentul cand m-a pocnit pe mine sa inteleg exact ce inseamna.

agree  Victorița Ionela Duță: asta e o traducere buna

agree  Stefangelo DPSI: In UK, zicala are o clara conotatie negativa, inseamna, daca faci rau, rau ti se va intimpla si tie in viitor, nu imediat. Deci aceasta traducere se potriveste cel mai bine
15 hrs

neutral  stefanica: ca sa scapam de interpretarea dependenta de locatie cred ca mai bine ar fi : "ce semeni aia culegi" varainta negativa pt englezi ar fi " cine semana vint culege furtuna" :)

La fel de bine cred că merge şi "După faptă şi răsplată".
Depinde însă f. mult şi de contextul particular în care apare expresia...

agree  Valentina Meyer: Da asta ar fi cel mai potrivit si se foloseste mai des (lasa ca se-nvarte roata)
5 hrs
  -> Mulţumesc, Valentina:) Da, acesta e sensul şi mi s-a părut a fi un vechi proverb românesc f. potrivit pt. descrierea ciclicităţii evenimentelor din viaţa unui om:)

neutral  mihaela.: ... eu stiam ca "roata morii ... "etc. este o expresie care inseamna ceva de genul "viata merge inainte", "timpul nu sta-n loc". Daca asa este, atunci trebuie tinut cont de faptul ca expresia in limba engleza are alt sens ...
7 hrs
  -> credeam că se caută traducerea în română:) după mine, traducerea ar fi chiar "what goes around..., mă rog, chestie de interpretare (şi de gusturi)
