    Comment traduiriez-vous cette expression en anglais ?

    Would "talk behind someone's back" be appropriate ?

    Merci d'avance !

    J'ai souvent entendu dire pour se moquer de quelqu'un dans son dos : to make fun of someone behind his back, alors j'imagine que votre traduction convient bien...

    "talking behind someones back" is commonly used in English

    For example "What's going on? George told me that you have been talking about me behind my back"

    Or - " lets get this into the open - it's not right to talk about him behind his back"
