fond of saying
Hi, please can somebody help me with a translation of an English phrase. I want to say:
As Hannibal Smith was fond of saying, "I love it when a plan comes together".
Does this translate directly into Spanish, or is there a Spanish idiomatic phrase that conveys the same idea?
My attempt would be:
Como Hannibal Smith le gustaba hablar, "Me encanta que los planes salgan bien*".
- I lifted the translation of his catchphrase from the spanish wikipedia page, it's the first part of the sentence I am asking for help with.
Thanks in advance!
In this case translating literally was the best way,
"Como a Hannibal Smith le gustaba decir,"
We also say, " Como Hannibal Smith se acostumbraba decir.........."
