What does this sentence mean?
a da... mai departe - to forward, pass on, pass along: http://www.wordreference.com/roen/da%20mai%20departe
Picture a bunch of workers on an assembly line.
we passed the pieces along should be perfectly acceptable
I think that doesn't express the imperfect tense but "we were passing along the pieces should be accepted"
Typically, in the English language, a sentence should not end with a preposition. "We were passing along the pieces" should be a correct translation.
We were passing along the pieces should also be accepted
