German to English translations [PRO]
German term or phrase:Gestern war es so weit
"Yesterday" refers to the opening of a long-awaited trade fair and series of events this company is involved in.
Among other things, this involves laying on a boat in the company's colours on a lake next to the site of the fair to ferry visitors from one part of the fair to another.
Does it mean something like "yesterday things finally got underway?"
Thanks very much for all suggestions. I liked this one Mary. I could see that strictly speaking "finally" wasn't really in there in the German but felt it sounded a bit flat without it. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
