Translation:What do you say?

@airelibre The pronoun "you" is also nowhere to be found in this sentence yet it is in the English translation. If I read the tips right this sentence could be translated:
What are they saying? What do they say? What are we saying? What do we say? What does one say?
Maybe: What is being said?
I don't know but I understood that the context determines which if any pronoun should be used. Am I misunderstanding something?
No. And also the translation is right but very misleading. This is a sentence without a subject. It's equivalent to a passive sentence. maybe a better translation would be "what should have been said?". If I try to find a context for this sentence, I imagine a mother that tries to educate her child, so she gives him an ice-cream and asks him "מה אומרים?" and expects the child to answer "תודה" ("thank you").
