comment How to say “What's it to you?” in Japanese?
I can't address the translation aspects of this, but a more polite phrase in English, also meaning "(imperative) Do not get involved." would be "This is my (fight/battle).". The implications are completely positive toward the person you are addressing: You most likely could solve this problem for me, but honor/duty/pride require me to refuse your help. but still carries an emphatic stay out. I imagine that Japanese would have a way to express that thought as well.
