Question [...] is the call of the day

How would this expression translate into Spanish?

Can you give an example in English? I can't think of the expression you're saying.. people say "Call it a day" all the time... is that what you meant?

Sí, "llamada"; ¿También "orden del día"?

Just it can be translated as La llamada del dia.
Or es la llamada del dia.

It seems to me that Hermit is the one that gets closer to this. I thought about it, and remembered the expression "está a la orden del día", what is more common, that is in widespread usage... But I believe in the context is more like the "watchword", like the "leit motiv", the "byword" that gives a concept of the "whole". Like in the context,

in the boardrooms, and in secure government offices… far away from view… that is why “transparency” is the call of the day… and that is why it will never be actualized… if it were we might all discover the truth... the emperor has no clothes.

Any other ideas in Spanish for this?, like "la palabra clave"? Or some such?

En ese contexto no creo que "orden del día" pueda ir bien. ¿Podrías por el contexto de rededor de la frase sin abreviar? (...)
Con lo dado keyword (palabra clave) o sus variantes parecen, como propusiste, más adecuadas.

...es por eso que "transparencia" es la orden del día, por eso no va a ser nunca cambiada...

En México (coloquialmente) diríamos "es la onda".

Pero me parece que más universalmente se puede decir: "está a la orden del día", "es la palabra clave", "es la moda", "es lo de hoy"...


Aquí entenderíamos "ser la orden del día" como una lista de asuntos que se van a tratar en una asamblea, una junta, una celebración...

I was wondering above the word El día al día.
What do you think about?
