    ¿Cómo se dice esta expresión en español? Os pongo unos ejemplos:
    Black is to White, as Hot is to Cold
    Cow is to Calf, as Pig is to Piglet.

    Qué tal: ...es para..., como ...es para... ?

    La traducción es más literal, aunque tu propuesta se entiende:

    A es a B lo que X es a Y.
