English term or phrase: venue survey closed text
A translator translated the above mentioned phrase and wrote \"testo chiusura sondaggio localitá\", but, in my opinion, there are too many nouns in the same sentence and the title cannot be understood. The idea is that there is a survey on a webpage that is closed.
Please, help me providing me with possible translations or jus saying whether his translation is correct.

Explanation:
In broken English it is correct - but, I agree with you....it is so broken it is hard to follow. This is typical when translating computer "strings", you end up with writing "anglicisms" in another language.

in Italiano esteso si direbbe: "testo visualizzabile quando il sondaggio di località è chiuso"

se poi vuoi proprio ridurlo oltre, allora potresti dire: "testo visualizzato a sondaggio (località) chiuso"

Explanation:
Just adding a few prepositions should be sufficient, but it depends on the original meaning, in itself not very clear:

- testo per chiusura del sondaggio località (assuming it means "text to be displayed when the venue survey gets closed") - I imagine it would then say something like: Thank you for taking part; we are now closing the survey.

- testo per sondaggio località chiuso (=text to be displayed if the venue survey is closed). I imagine it would then say something like: Thank you for your interest, but the survey has already been closed.

(I am also assuming, like your translator, that venue describes the survey - survey about a venue...)

Hope this helps,
Roberta
