English term or phrase:ship shape
I found the term "ship shape" can be translated as "orden y limpieza" but, when it refers to actual ships and improvements/repairs done, what would you suggest?
I'd go with "mantenimiento de barcos", as it appears in two titles within the text I am translating.
Any better ideas/ suggestions?
Thanks in advance!!!
Explanation: The phrase is "ship shape and Bristol fashion" an always means in good order tidy and ready to use. In your context it means the repairs/improvements are completed properly and everything works fine.
