In what languages does “everything is in order” stand for “everything is alright” (and sounds natural)?

Add Modern Greek, as a calque from German into Ancient Greek (Katharevousa): όλα εν τάξει. Now spelled as a single word εντάξει, because that’s a fricking dative, and we don’t have datives any more. Answered 2016-11-01 [Originally posted on]
