there's no accounting for taste (Creole?)

O O! I think I might miss the Creole translation for this one :)
So let me make sure.....
by "accounting" you mean "balance, consideration" here?
by "taste" you mean "perception, good sense, good judgment, finesse" here?
I just realized I'm English-challenged :-\

There's no accounting for taste.
Pa gen okenn konsiderasyon pou bon sans.

    1. Oh... mwen konprann...

      so "taste", here, is about culture or cultivation.

      We can translate this as:
      Pa gen konsiderasyon pou kilti
      There's no consideration for culture (literal)
      or
      Gen yon mank konsiderasyon pou kilti/sivilizasyon.
      There's a lack of consideration for culture (literal)

  2. sort of..i meant on situation when someone judge someone's taste in this or that (food,music,clothing, etc.) what's, frankly speaking, impolite and not appropriate
    we cannot discuss other peoples tastes
