I would need to know if there is a specific expression for this phrase in Spanish (Spain).
The sentence reads:
That's why "The Quiet One" is getting a big thumbs up.
As far as I know, there is no expression for thumbs up, only "aprobación" or "señal de aprobación", but as it is a marketing sentence, may be you can help me finding something more "punching". Thanks guys!!!
Muchísimas gracias a todos!! Todas vuestras sugerencias fueron muy útiles, pero lamentablemente solo puedo elegir una. Yo lo había traducido como "aceptación" pero el cliente me pidió algo más impactante y opté por la "calificación escolar" :) 3 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: Hi, my suggestion is a term we use frequently in Spain. "Recibe un diez" means it gets the highest possible grade (as in school grades).
You could also say: "recibe la aprobación generalizada del público", but that's a bit long
Hope to have been of some help.

Because it is a marketing comment, I think tha "getting the best welcome" would be the best translation in this case. I also like "es el (o la) que se gana un 10" which is more colloquial,as someone else suggested. The only problem with colloquialisms is that they are not that universal, and there are 20 countries that speak Spanish...and in some countries 1 could be the best instead of 10.
Good luck !
