    Hi forum :)

    I would like to know if 'une situation perdant perdant' is used in french? I found similar expressions on the french google, but not quite in the way I want to use it.

    I want to be able to say something like: she is in a lose lose situation.

    thank you in advance

    No, "une situation perdant-perdant" is not used in French.

    To my knowledge, "a lose-lose situation doesn't have a French equivalent. Something similar would be: "une situation sans issue" (a situation with no way out)

    On pourrait dire aussi :
    "Dans cette situation, je suis perdant(e) à tous les coups"
