it is fair to say...要怎麼翻比較恰當?

我有一句要翻議

It is definitely fair to say that if company ABC is found guilty of breach the contract.

我當初是翻 說ABC公司被認定犯下違約之罪很公平的~

可是,有人跟我說, it is fair to say是用於假設語氣

我這樣翻是錯誤的!

請問有高手可以幫忙一下~幫我看一下要怎麼翻嗎

謝謝!!

Update:

恩~因為會牽扯到內部的問題

所以我就沒寫了

所以這是假設語氣???

我本來這樣翻是錯的囉?

翻客觀"可以嗎

Update 2:

謝謝大家的回答

可是我有點疑惑

那這句要怎麼翻比較適當呢??

(因為是要翻給老闆看的..........)

    先看看字典怎麼說:

    依據Cambridge Advanced Learner Dictionary

    it's fair to say的意思是 it is true to say

    看例句:

    I think it's fair to say (that) you've done less of the work than I have.

    再看fair的常用解釋:

    treating someone in a way that is right or reasonable, or treating a group of people equally and not allowing personal opinions to influence your judgment

    指的是以公正合理的態度對待他人,或不受他人影響其判斷,不偏不倚的對待某人

    再看看Oxford Advanced Learner Dictionary

    fair的 相關解釋是treating everyone equally and according to the rules or law

    例句

    I think it is fair to say that they are pleased with this latest offer.

    So, it is fair to say翻成

    正式點: 持平而言,~

    白話點: 說真的,~

    你覺得如何呢?

    如果說:「這句還難以判斷,因為正如Koka說的"原文怎麼沒有下文阿? If 完後沒說會怎樣."」,這話應該算公允吧.

    it is fair to say...要怎麼翻比較恰當?

    由這句話的內容來看, if後面的話應是支持(呼應)前面所說ABC公司違反司法的事, 所以, 您這句應是翻成:

    ABC公司被裁定為違反了合約的話是相當恰當的..........

    最 好 要 把 'to say' [給 擦 掉 ﹐ fair to say 意 思 即 是 說 ‘你 覺 得 是 這 樣 ’。 所 以 整 個 line 不 是 一 個 句 子 。

    It is definitely fair to say that if company ABC is found guilty of breach of contract, then...要 補 充 一 個 clause 上 去

    如果想說ABC公司被認定犯下違約之罪很公平的﹐ 就 寫 ﹕

    It is fair if ABC is found guilty of breach of contract.

    Or

    It is fair if ABC is found guilty of breaching the contract.

    It is definitely fair to say that if company ABC is found guilty of breach the contract.

    (你的原文怎麼沒有下文阿? If 完後沒說會怎樣.)

    我們絕對可以客觀(不失公平)的說如果ABC公司被認定犯下違約之罪的話.....
