Could someone help me translate this phrase:
"Anyway you say it..."

A multi-cultural high school in Fairfax County, Virginia, is translating this phrase into many languages to be used on the cover of their high school yearbook, to emphasis their multi cultural student body. They would like to add Irish to reflect the Irish-American student population.
Thanking you for any help possible,

Anyway you say it = however you say it = whatever way you say it = no matter how you say it

Similarly, there are a number of ways to express this idea in Irish. Here are a couple (agus tá súil agam go bhfaighidh muid moltaí eile ó na Gaeilgeoirí eile a léann an clár plé seo... agus ceartúcháin más gá!):

Cibé ar bith mar a deir tú é

Cibé ar bith mar a deirtear é

Cibé dóigh a ndeirtear é

Is cuma cad é mar a deir tú é

Is cuma conas a deirtear é
