Wir haben gerade ziemlich viel zu tun.

English Translation

We’re pretty busy right now.

Also could be read as “we are quite busy at the moment”, “pretty” in this context sounds more US to me as a native UK speaker (ymmv).

As a neutral non-native English speaker it is always fun to watch the American-British language culture clash.
I remember the following scene from a science congress:
An Englishman is giving a lecture. Afterwards in question and answer time, an American rises and starts his question (appreciatively) with “Mighty pretty lecture you gave …” Indignant answer of the English: “Thank you so much for calling my lecture “mighty pretty” …” :grinning: :grinning: :grinning:

Btw, if you want to have the same fun, just watch a German ordering a “Kaffee” in an Austrian coffee shop. It’s the same clash between German speakers.
