Disons qu'on n' est pas d'accord est une bonne traduction oui. D'autres possibilités (un peu plus formelles) :

  • Accordons-nous sur notre désaccord.
  • Soyons d'accord dans notre désaccord.
  • Acceptons notre désaccord.

    Thanks for the answer. I omitted on purpose 'n' from n'est pas for sounding more native I thought:-)!

    Okay, then you're an one level up from me ;) You're right, it's more native-alike to omit the n in informal texts (texto, letters) it's not a problem.

  • Thanks again for the comment. In speech as well:-)! I've heard even university professors systematically omitting 'n' even in less relaxed settings (meetings, lectures and the like).

    Actually, you can't omit the n in a speech as it sounds the same with or without (with the liaison). Is that what you meant?

    @Dimitris That doesn't work well. Nous is formal so leads to using ne.
