Senza stato si sta bene giù le mani dalla val susa!  » answer
by flambit (UN), Last modified: 2017-03-20, 23:36  like dislike  Spam?  
Hi, I'm looking to translate this phrase from Italian:

Senza stato si sta bene giù le mani dalla val susa!

This was graffiti spray painted on a wall in Italy.  There was a peace sign drawn after it.  

Thanks!

Sorry - i have this backwards, probably should have posted in English to Italian!  Anyway, any help is appreciated...

The translation of the graffiti is
"Without the state we are fine, hands off Val Susa"
Val Susa is a valley in Piemonte- there have been many protests about a high-speed railway that is being built to pass there, so that is probably what the graffiti is referring to, if you want more context you can look up no TAV movement.

"then we would find even more of them (= the things to talk about)" in Italian?
Would it be "poi troveremmo ne anche di piu"?

I would love for someone to help me translate the following from English to Italian:

Possibly: "Sono andato/a per la valle dell'ombra della morte.", but I'm not a native speaker (neither of Italian nor of English) and there's no guarantee that this translation is right.

If you refer to psalm 23/4:

"4 Quand'anche camminassi nella valle dell'ombra della morte, [...]" (La Nuova Diodati; Nuova Riveduta 1994; Nuova Riveduta 2006)

Thank you for your response!

I want the phrase to be in past tense.
I contacted an Italian professor from the University of Maryland, and they told me that it would read this way:

"Ho camminato nella valle dell'ombra della morte"

The literal translation is "Ho camminato attraverso la valle dell'ombra della morte"

Which would be better?

I need the phrase 'a permanent solution to a temporary problem' translated into Italian.

A friend is considering tattooing this phrase and requires the Italian version.

Thank you.

"Una soluzione permanente a un problema temporaneo"
or
"Una soluzione definitiva a un problema temporaneo"
but the first is better (imho).

Squirrel-quattro's answer is not wrong!
You can also say:

Information about a change in the guidelines regarding delete votes » answer
by Paul (AT), 2016-06-27, 17:50  like dislike  Spam?  
The basic rule in GL 3 is "Always confirm the first correct posting!". So far, when there was no completely correct posting, and someone voted for a deletion, this delete vote was the first correct posting, so it had to be confirmed. However, most of the contributors understood this differently or didn't want to comply with it, for reasons I understand. In the last months this rule was challenged several times, which caused a lot of discussions. In the end I came to the conclusion that the vast majority of the community wants less strict delete rules. After discussing some text suggestions (forum: #846903), the following rule was accepted and is now effective:

+Always confirm the first correct posting! [...]
A [del] vote is considered a correct posting if no previous posting (input, vote or comment) contained...

Crossword help! » answer
by hoosierscotts (US), Last modified: 2016-05-26, 19:58  like dislike  Spam?  
I am working on updating an old edition of an intermediate-level Italian language (US) workbook.  So, I discovered that on a crossword puzzle (Parole crociate), a clue was left out for a word.  The original author is not available to help.  
From the context (political history/fascism) I believe the word is the adjective "totalitario."  I need help writing a very short clue, and I'm not confident in machine translation.  Regime, tolerate, and dissent are used in this chapter.  Would it be correct to write: "Regime che non tollera il dissenso"?  Or, "Regime che è intollerante di dissenso" ?  What wording is brief but grammatically correct?  Thank you so much in advance for your advice!

I think "Regime che non tollera il dissenso" and "Regime che è intollerante a (!) dissenso" are grammatically ok. A bit shorter would be: "Regime intollerante a dissenso". But these are the definitions of the noun "totalitarian regime".

Maybe the definitions in monolingual Italian dictionaries will help you:
http://dizionari.repubblica.it/Italiano/T/totalitario.php
http://www.garzantilinguistica.it/ricerca/?q=totalitario
http://treccani.it/vocabolario/totalitario/
http://www.dizionario-italiano.it/dizionario-italiano.php?rs=&l...
http://dizionari.corriere.it/dizionario_italiano/T/totalitario.shtml
...

Perhaps you could define the adjective with "dittatoriale, senza dissenso" (or only "dittatoriale" or "senza dissenso").

Clue  #846142
by BioIdra, 2016-06-14, 13:08  like dislike  Spam?  2.238.138....
The guy above me got it almost right

"Regime che non tollera il dissenso"  Is correct and fitting, I suggest using this.
"Regime che è intollerante di dissenso" Is wrong, correcting it results in something like this
"Regime intollerante al dissenso" .
"Intollerante" is not a word commonly used in the sense it has here, thus i suggest using the first translation.
