From a song from 2013 by belgian singer Stromae:
Formidable, formidable Tu étais formidable, j'étais fort minable, Nous étions formidables
What is the correct translation of 'formidable' in this case? Can it be translated as 'wonderful' or 'amazing' or maybe even as formidable, a word that also exists in English but usually not used to describe a couple? I had seen the song translated with all those variations.
I am doing my baby steps in studying French and trying to understand if I spot a word that has an English equivalent like in this case, what are the chances that they have the same meaning?
