Does anyone speak Italian? I need some assistance

Recommended Posts

I had no idea where to post this one, so thought it may as well reside in the forum it relates to.

 

I have found a Kuzma Stabi S motor only for sale in Italy. It is listed on a number of Italian only sites. I sent the poster an email, but apart from a standard "Buongiorno" greeting I had to put the rest in English. Perhaps not surprisingly I have had no response, much as I would be if someone sent me an email in Italian.

 

Can anyone assist me with communication, or suggest a way to approach this? Thanks in advance

Use google translate 

Chose English to Italian 

 

Sample below 

English 

hello i am interested in the Kuzma Staby motor 

 

Italian 

ciao sono interessato al motore Kuzma Staby

Thanks guys. I did think of that, but it can be quite clunky and may get some things wrong at times. In the absence of any other suggestions I will give it a go

You are quite correct. Even professional translation programs still require editing for syntax. 

Pm me if services are still required.

Thanks Auracle. I sent off a Google Translated message prior to seeing your post. I'll see how that goes, and contact you if I still need some help

I would suggest if you use Google translate to include a statement that you are using it so the other party will (hopefully) be forgiving of mistakes.

When I was buying an item from Russia I trialled both Google and Bing translate and then did reverse translations to find the "best".

 

I told the Russians it was a machine translation and included the english as well just in case they wanted to try translating themselves.

 

It all went well.😀

Good advice, thanks guys. I did mention I was using Google translate, and repeated what I had said in my earlier email in English. The only thing I didn't do was try the alternative translation. Fingers crossed

Google for English - Italian is generally pretty good - they should be able to understand it sufficiently to assist you. :)

Send your message in Italian and English.  Make sure your English message is in simple straightforward standard English, avoiding jargon and slang that could be misinterpreted by a translation program.
