German to English translations [Non-PRO]
German term or phrase:geht's langsam schneller.
wenn Sie es sich nicht vorstellen koennen, manchmal geht's langsam schneller.
Explanation: Can play around with this one.
The first part, before the comma, could mean even if you can't imagine it. But the Auch wenn... is not there. So it might mean, When you can't imagine something (i.e. a bit of thought is needed) sometimes you have to slow down and think.
Can play around with the second part - slow and steady wins the race; easy does it; you'll make more progress going slowly, and lots of other wise words!
