Hi all,

In English, we sometimes say "It's not rocket science" to describe something (technical) that’s difficult but not impossible.

The German translation of this seems to be simply 'not too complicated‘ [http://de.pons.eu/dict/search/results/?q=rocket+science&l=deen&in=ac_en&lf=en&kbd=en-gb]

I was wondering if there’s a more idiomatic expression?

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Hi fredbär,

mein Vorschlag wäre: Das ist kein Hexenwerk.

Hi @ all,

Na, so schwer ist das nun auch wieder nicht (ugs)
