Welcome, Matteo. What is your favorite genre?

So is this an Italian spelling?

You know, like color is the American form and colour is British.

Apparently this person can "traduce from English to Italian. If someone want to traduce its opera, in order to insert it into Italian market"

which means, "Traduce dall'inglese all'italiano. Se qualcuno vuole tradurre la sua opera, per inserirlo nel mercato italiano" according to Google Translate... hey wait a second... I can also traduce from Inklish into Italian!

Never mind that in English "traduce" means to slander or ruin someone's reputation...

I can traduce from English to Italian - although sign language more than compensates for limited vocabulary...

The first time I went to Italy, I got this language CD that was supposed to help you get by with the basics.

All I could remember when I got there was how to order a beer and say "strawberry."

"mi esposo esta en el inodoro" can get a lone female traveller out of many awkward invitations in Rome...

And it would probably work even better in Madrid or Barcelona.
