    Hi,

    I'm not sure whether to start a new threat, or add this bit on to the "last resort" thread, so I will start by asking my question here:
    Could anyone offer some help as to how to translate this expression.

    "A means of last resort after all other avenues have been exhausted".

    Comme le/en dernier resort, après que tous les autres moyens aient/ont étés épuisés.

    Thank you all in advance.
