How about " Sth. is touch and go."
It depends on the actual situation.
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.

imminent是形容词,而一触即发是个动词吧?

我举得英文词 trigger 比较贴近。

trigger 只是“引发”、“导致”的意思,没有“一触即发”的含义。

"something that acts like a mechanical trigger in initiating a process or reaction" -- Merriam Webster 对trigger动词词性的定义。

“一触即发”在汉语里到底什么含义,我也不确定。不过用在像 The war is imminent 或者 The next financial crisis is imminent 是非常贴切的。

一般短语,英文的也好,中文的也好,往往有许多种可能的译法,不放在具体句子中,就不能说哪一种译法比较贴切。

imminent 用在你的例句中很好。trigger 作为单词只是触发的意思,不能引申为一触即发。

对,并非是一对一的关系,我没说清楚。
