    Comment je peux traduire cette expression "mais en même temps" de la meilleur façon en anglais, le context est un discours avec des amis où je veux tout simplement contradire un peu ce que je viens de dire...

    Exemple : "Cette matière n'a pas beaucoup de chapitres, mais en même temps (en revanche) les chapitres sont énormes"

    I think the best translation would be: "but on the other hand..."

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the "but" is necessary in English in this context. So, "then again" would suffice.
