I am translating a text, and I am struggling with this sentence. Does it sound natural and convey the idea?

'You can drive up to one meter close to the tables'

---> with the meaning that you can drive so close to the tables that there is one meter distance between the car and the tables.

Your sentence does not sound natural. For one thing "drive up to one metre" means in the range 0 to 1 metres. I think you mean "drive up to the tables".

I would change it to

You can drive as close as one metre from the tables.

  • Thank you so much! :-)
