svelto, abile, destro, intelligente, elegante

Molto inglese - "that's nifty" può significare una marea di cose. E' un complimento.
He's a nifty dresser - è un elegantone
He's nifty - è abile
A nifty car - una macchina svelta, carina

Hope it's of use

carino, bello, figo


Explanation:
pienamente d'accordo con Angela, e' proprio come dire "bello" in italiano, nel senso che vuol dire tante cose, e la traduzione dipende proprio dal contesto, dal tono del testo, dal tipo di testo....
