    Ciao a tutti.
    Qualcuno sa darmi un o più corrispondenti inglesi di quest'espressione italiana? Grazie a tutti, Stolly

    Ci sono diverse espressioni colloquiali. Credo che la prima sia la più usata, ma aspetta altre opinioni:

    No matter what, it'll be a success.
    In any case,...
    Come what may,....

    Dear all,
    I would like to know if this expression "No matter what happens, it'll be a success" has the same ambivalence as the Italian equivalent, i.e. "success= successo", as well as "successo = past participle of the verb succedere (happen)".
    Thank you for your suggestions.

    Unlike 'successo', 'success' always indicates a positive outcome (a hit/triumph/achievement).
