Hi, people! Greetings from Rio, Brazil!

I need help with the English translation of an old Danish proverb:
Bedre er tiende Ord end tarvlös Tale.

"Better a silent word than an idle speech"?

Thanks,

Glauner

    Literally, 'A silent [i.e. unspoken] word is better than needless speech' -- so your proposal is good, I think.
