"engolir em seco" - significa algo diferente. Wenn einem etwas im hals stecken belibt - in dieser Richtung!

"Nichts einstecken koennen" wuerde ich im Sinne von "keiner Kritik entgegennehmen koennen" verstehen.

Aber dieser Ausdruck oder diese Uebersetzungsweise ist einfach Umgangssprache.

Asker: Aqui onde? Quanto as outras duas traducoes, me parecem um pouco estranhas. Nunca usei elas em minha vida. Einstecken nao seria engolir / engolir em seco?
