English term or phrase: Riding the wave (here)
Este titlul unei reviste dar o traducere literala este un categoric no, no.
This edition is entitled Riding the Wave – XXX Rises to New Opportunities in Power Management. The edition focuses on some of the latest opportunities that have opened up to XXX as a result of being positioned at the crossroads of major trends requiring new ways of managing power.

The expression “Riding the Wave” sends the implicit message that external forces are bringing new business opportunities our way thanks to the reputation we’ve already built as a leader in power management.

Imi trebuie ceva deosebit care sa cuprinda sensul acestei expresii si sa nu fie foarte lung. M-am tot gandit... cuvantul "val" probabil va trebui folosit cumva pt ca se face referire ulterioara la el de ex: New waves of success. Dar cum sa-l pun intr-un context bun inca nu m-am dumirit. Ca sa nu mai vorbesc de verbul to ride ....

Multumesc pt ajutor! Stiu ca sunt multi traducatori talentati printre voi :)

Pe val

La noi se foloseşte expresia a fi pe val. Riding chair că nu prea ai cum să-l traduci şi să sune natural în română, daor să zici călare pe val; dar parcă sună mai bine şi e şi mai scurt doar Pe val. Deci l-aş omite pe riding.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Buna Ovidiu, mersi de raspuns. Uite ce am gasit eu: ride (on) a/the wave to become involved with and get advantages from opinions or activities which have become very common or popular (often + of ) She came to power riding on a wave of personal popularity. to ride the wave 1. (idiomatic) To take advantage of a profitable period. Se pare ca exista expresia si se refera mai mult la a valorifica oportunitati, avantaje.

Termenul contine tocmai acest fenomen (din surfing) de a profita de val si a-l folosi.
