    Ciao dovrei tradurre questa frase : Glad to see you, boys. Time to kick some serious butt.
    è abbastanza sempiice ma non riesco a trovare la maniera giusta per metterla in italiano.
    Non esiste contesto. Fa parte di un video gioco, forse di guerra.

    il problema sta nel tradurre kick some serious butt.
    andiamo a fare il culo a qualcuno di importante?
    e adesso suoniamogliele?

    non riesco a trovare la traduzione giusta per kick some butt e non riesco neanche a metterci dentro serious

    grazie mille
    ciao
    Paolo

    There are three other threads on "kick butt" - I'll leave the translation of that to you :D
    http://www.wordreference.com/enit/kick butt

    as for "serious" - here it only serves as a rafforzativo - it means to do the job with extra effort or enthusiasm. It's the same as saying "It's time to get serious about kicking some butt" or "It's time to kick some butt - for real!" (Not "importante" but "serio/grave", "per davvero")
