Albanian term or phrase: ç'më sheh syri, ma bën dora
Po bëj redaktimin e një libri të mikut tim, i cili ka përdorur shumë shprehje frazeologjike. Përkthimi për këtë frazë është i mirë, po jo aq i goditur, kështu që po mundohem të gjej një përkthim më të përshtatshëm.
Thanks,
Ani

I carry out with perfection any thing my eye see


Explanation:
Any thing I see its done to its best.

Edhe pse shprehja jonë nuk e ka përsosmërinë në të, unë e shtova pasi në anglisht nuk do të kishte fort kuptim pa të.

Nuk e ke kollaj, jo :D.

Shpresoj të të vij sado pak në ndihmë. Kolegët e tjerë jam e sigurt që do gjejnë edhe ide të tjera të hatashme.

  -> Faleminderit, Elvana. I agree with your translation too, except for it doesn't include the meaning of "dexterity".

disagree  Nick Beqo: Sorry buddy, but IMHO this means "te dish pak nga te gjitha", actually you might find it translated even as "shume e per lume"; The meaning of the afore-mentioned expression is something like "duar flori". Just my opinion, ok?
