Auf jeden and keinen Fall

[deactivated user]

    Can someone translate these for me and explain the uses of the words?

    auf jeden Fall - definitely; auf keinen Fall - never (ever)

    Doesn't the translation also explain the use?

    Yes, literally.

    auf jeden Fall = in every case (i.e definitely!)
    auf keinen Fall = in no case (i.e. never!)
