|English term or phrase: antipodes|
|Can you say in English that two languages are like the antipodes? In a meaning - comlete/total opposites/different?|
|English translation:they are poles apart|
If you want to keep the antipodean reference I'd use something like "poles apart". I think anything with antipodes is going to sound pretty odd in this context.
