"C'est oui !"

March 5, 2013


"It is yes", now what kind of a phrase is that?

March 5, 2013
  • tu viens avec moi ?
  • peut-ĂȘtre, je ne sais pas...
  • alors, c'est oui ou c'est non ?
  • c'est oui !

I wrote "Yes it is!" thinking that made... more sense.

March 6, 2013

it's like from "x factor" or another "got talent" lol when a judge replies to the contestant, but in this case should be "it's A yes" I guess

March 9, 2013

I think it might supposed to mean "It is, yes!".

March 8, 2013

No, rather "it is: yes!"

March 8, 2013

I feel like the correct translation should be: "That's right!"

March 13, 2013

I put "That's a yes", but I guess that more of an idiom than the actual phrase.

March 8, 2013

Same here. It should definitely be an option. At the least it's something English speaking people actually say, as opposed to 'It is yes'

March 14, 2013

that made absolutely no sense

There's got to be a better translation for this sentence.

March 19, 2013

C'est oui is a pretty common French phrase. I think that "It's true!" is a better translation into English. But, if you just map the words one for one, then their translation is of course good.

March 29, 2013

Yeah, that's exactly the issue -- it's a common French phrase, which is rendered into a totally nonsensical English phrase. Mapping the words one for one produces something, but it's not a translation!

March 29, 2013

I agree, stupid sentence!

March 11, 2013

I've never heard anyone say "It's yes". What does this even mean

March 31, 2013

Yes, it is. In my opinion, it is absolutely right

March 19, 2013

I got it incorrect for writing "of course" :(

March 27, 2013

In what possible English-language context would you utter "It is yes!"?!?

March 28, 2013

Couldnt it be "this is right"?

March 31, 2013

not really, "c'est oui" is an emphatic "yes", as a conclusion on a topic requiring a "yes" or a "no"

March 31, 2013

Google translate, translate this phrase as yes it is

April 10, 2013

I entered it into Google translate and it gave me "yes, it is."
