|English term or phrase: almighty|
|"You're almighty, you're almighty."|
Song lyrics. This is a hymn, and 'todopoderoso' is a bit long. Any suggestions for economizing syllables in order to retain the meter? Thanks to all. Bill.
Given my background, as you know, I am aware that you need a two-syllable word for your combination. Check the meaning of both words in good dictionaries and you'll find strong associations to 'almighty'. Besides, as far as translating lyrics is concerned, it is too hard to achieve perfection.
Selected response from:
|Hi Al! This fits exactly to the metre, "eres grande, eres grande." I'm going to go with this one. Thanks! Also thanks to all the suggestions from everybody. |

otra sugerencia de Larousse, que tiene solo cuatro sílabas, aunque no se si te valdrá. Podría "magnífico" ser otra opción?
Saludos. María ;o)
