Yes, that was my interpretation, I went for a direct translation to make it clearer and because I didn't know any English terms for it. 🙃 "At the turn of a wheel" sounds good, I was searching for "at the turn of the tide" or something like that but was not sure what that actually meant to a native English speaker. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
