I only picked the number eight to shorten the title, but this question is for any scenario where you are explaining to someone what something means in another language. I've heard this said both ways, in one case it was on sesame street. The character said (sang),
"No me gusta. (In Spanish that means, 'I don't like')"
The above seems wrong to me, but I would think an educational show would be sure to use the correct version. Off the top of my head I can't think where I heard the other way, I think it was on an episode of "The X-Files". It was something along the lines of...
"Scully, 'blah blah blah' means Alien in English."
I wasn't sure how to tag this question.
