German term or phrase:Wer Volltreffer will, stösst immer wieder auf uns
This is part of a company brochure advertising new catalogues to retailers. In the background is a photo of a cue aimed at the white ball and a set of numbered colour balls. I've been trying to find pool/billiard jargon on the internet to come up with a suitable snappy translation, but haven't been very successful. This is what I have done so far:
"Anyone who wants to pot in one will always score with us"
That's fair enough if the job's out. But one option would be to state that fact but still leave the question open for the benefit of colleagues and the Kudoz glossary. If you subsequently forget about the question, you'll get a reminder anyway. ;-)
Well, the translation has been handed in and I was satisfied with the answer. This is a subjective/creative translation, not a technical term, so I think it doesn't matter that much. If I hadn't closed it, I would probably have forgotten. I have plenty to do and have to move on. It's my way of getting on with things.
