    Hello everyone, I'm currently translating some documentary for a friend and there's this expression that comes around pretty often but I have trouble translating it. Since it occurs quite a few time I'd love to get a detailed explanation of what it can mean in different contexts (I have the impression that it doesn't always mean the exact same thing) rather than just give you a sentence and get an explanation.

    Thanks a lot!

    As always, we can't really help you until you give us (all) the different contexts. Literally, this translates to 'he's rested himself' which colloquially means a number of different things - the most common of which, perhaps, is that the person in question has given up/hasn't bothered with doing something.
