- "Van valami újdonság veletek?" = Gibt es etwas Neues bei euch?
It would use veletek, not nálatok. This is one of those sentences that Hungarians took from the German language word by word except for that if you used nálatok, you would either be asking about something new at their place or something new that they carry with themselves.
However, there are more common ways to ask the same question:
- "Mi újság veletek?" ≈ What's up with you guys?
- "Mi a helyzet veletek?" ≈ What's going on with you guys?
Erm… I mean…
It would use veletek, not bennetek.
The correct English translation here is "There is nothing new about you."
- "Tibennetek nincs semmi új."
- "Tibennetek semmi új nincs."
What it's trying to say is that there's nothing new about what you do because you couldn't come up with anything new.
– or –
Imagine that you are in the future. You're a robot who has just got some new parts. You then say to the two robots who still have old parts only: "There is nothing new in you."
Only acceptable if we are talking about soft-toys or robots, etc. 'Inside' would then mean that e.g. you are taking apart several watches and then the watchmaker would say, disappointed: 'there is nothing new in(side) you.. it is just cogwheels and springs.' = ' Bennetek semmi új nincs... csak fogaskerekek és rugók.'
I think you misunderstood a bit here. I wasn't saying that "about you" is a good translation for benne, but that it should be accepted as a translation of the above tibennetek. "In you" doesn't make a whole lot of sense in English if you're not literally talking about insides, so "about you" should be a better fit here, like iRBiS confirmed above.
(Also you could translate benne with "in you" if you remember that formal pronous are second-person pronouns in English but third-person in Hungarian.)
Ok, sorry, I should have replied to MitjaSterman... I simply wanted to keep the order of the replies.
(You can NOT ever translate the formal "in you" as "benne"... that can only be translated as "önben" or "magában" [again, if we talk about formal 'in you']. E.g. 'Önben egy állat lakozik, Uram' would be 'There is an animal in you, my Sir', or 'Magában egy őstehetséget tisztelhetünk' would be 'We can honour a pure genius in you.' 'Benne' is always 'in him/her'.)
