I would agree with some of the above answers, but more as a literal translation. In practice, one is more likely to say either "in short" or "in other words" as a closer approximate meaning to the Chinese "總而言之". To re-phrase Bella's example. "He is friendly, kind, and warmhearted. In short, he is a good guy.

sorry, I forgot to post an example with "in a word/in one word", here it is You are friendly. You are kind. You are warmhearted. In one word, you are a good guy. 你很友善,你很亲切,你很热心,总而言之,你就是个好人。
