    Ciao a tutti,
    come tradurreste la segente frase in EN: "sto facendo il check del budget di progetto ma i conti non tornano".

    "I'm checking the project budget but ...." boh!

    Grazie per l'aiuto

    "...the figures don't add up" is quite commonly used.

    Italian (and partly English)
    "the figures don't add up" - credo sia equivalente a "i conti non tornano"

    Hi,

    Is "counts don't match" also used?

    Can't say this makes sense to me.

    Buon Anno a tutti :)

    counts don't match :cross:
    The figures don't add up :tick:

    We also use the word "tally" when trying to reconcile two sets of figures. The numbers don't tally/the accounts don't tally, etc. Some people say "tally up" - The accounts don't tally up.
