French to Italian translations [PRO] Art/Literary
French term or phrase:Il ne faut pas se fier a n'importe qui
Is there a special way to say this expression in Italian... a typical idiom, perhaps?
I am glad that you gave a similar answer to the English as I am translating a document in Italian and English at the moment from French. Thank you once again! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: The answer given is pretty uncorrect. 1. You can't say "avere LA fiducia in qualcuno" , you have to say "avere fiducia in...". without the article.
Anyway it's probably better to use the verb "fidarsi".
2. "Tizio, caio e sempronio" could be OK for "n'importe qui", but certainly not with this expression: it's a question of collocation!
If you want something more familiar you could say "non ci si può fidare di chi passa per strada".
