Don't EVER trust Google Translate!

"Maintenant le singe sort de la manche", though grammatically correct, sounds totally odd in French.

In French, the equivalent of "let the cat out of the bag" would be:

- "vendre la mèche" (originally "éventer la mèche", which is military language: to drill a hole [in the mine] to let the wick ("mèche") in the open ("éventer" comes from "vent" = wind); then "éventer" became "vendre" (to sell) since "vendre" also means "to betray"), or

- "dévoiler le pot aux roses" ("dévoiler" = to reveal, to uncover. The "pot aux roses" was in the Middle Age the name of the small box in which wealthy young women kept their perfumes and their rose/pink make up. Often they were also hiding secrets or love letters there), or

- (very familiar) "cracher le morceau" (literally "to spill the morsel", in proper English "to spill the beans").

There is also the direct translation that works, at least here in Quebec : Le chat sort du sac. (Literally "The cat gets out of the bag")

Нет ничего путного в рассчёте о колчестве пикселей сенсора К-1: их будет 36Мп, а не 42Мп, хотя бы потому, что Сони не продаст своего 42Мп-ового сенсора, пока не пройдёт год, после выспуска на рынок под собственным брендом.

Lets see if my many, many holiday's in Norway result in a rough but usabel translation. It seems Kenspo from now on will only use his native Norwegian dialect to communicate. I have been told that especially the dialects from the western coastal areas are rather tough to understand. Even for other Norwegians. That could complicate things a bit!😮

Mar wat makket it ek út. Ik ha foarearst dochs gjin jild yn kas foar dizze nije kamera. En dan hawwe it noch net iens hân oer de lenzen... (Frisian)

And a Frenchman would say: "A cheval donné, on ne regarde pas les dents."

This proverb already existed in Latin: "Noli equi dentes inspicere donati."

This direct translation wouldn't be understood on this side of the Atlantic ocean except by people who know the English equivalent.
