The problem X can be explained in different ways.
The problem X, explained in whatever way, has an implication for our situation.
The bolder part is meant to mean ‘regardless of how we explain it’. I am looking to say that in another way, using maybe a more fitting, more common phrase in that sense. The verb ‘explained’ is not crucial. It can be replaced by some other verbs. For example,
This term, interpreted in whatever way, is not applicable here.
This rule, construed in whatever way, is not fair.
I know that I have seen at least one other way to say such a thing, but I cannot remember. I know that we can say ‘regardless of how we explain it’ or ‘regardless of how it is explained’ or ‘no matter how it is explained’. But I am looking for a shorter phrase.
