Pas de problème, pronounced pa deu pruh blem, translates literally to "not any problem,"
but in use it means "no problem."

The informal French expression pas de problème is straightforward: It means "no problem"
or "it's no bother" in response to an apology or potential difficulty. Pas de problème is
slightly informal, whereas the longer, grammatically correct version, il n'y a pas de
problème, is acceptable in any situation.
