    in-the-know

    Hi guys!

    I have met these words for in-the-know (collectors).
    Will I be right if translated it as для тех, кто в курсе\для тех, кто знает\для знающих людей?

    Спасиб.!
    Я так думаю.

    Apparently you're asking about the phrase "for in-the-know (collectors)." The term "in the know" is quite common and means to know about something, usually a plan or event.
    For example, "are your friends in the know about the upcoming party?" In your example you could say "for those in the know." Without context the term "(collectors)" is meaningless.

    Re: in-the-know

    The term is used for people who have special information. People who are in-the-know know something that other people don't know. In-the-know collectors would be people who know a lot about collecting something, e.g. coins, stamps, paintings etc.
