Could you please tell me how to say "all in all" in French.
It snowed a bit more during the night but all in all it's not very much.
Il a neigé un peu plus pendant la nuit mais "all in all" il n'est pas beaucoup.
Thank you so much!

    Is it maybe "somme toute"??

  • FRENCH -

    "all in all" = à tout prendre

    Actually, instead "il n'est pas beaucoup" since you are referring to the preceding clause = ce n'est pas beaucoup.

    BTW "en somme" or "somme toute" are good for they mean "in short, when all is said and done."

    When you can't think of the "exact phrase" you want try another way to mean about the same thing!
