English term or phrase: I want to send a fax
in the event that who ever answer does not speak english
Janet Hudson
Italian translation:Fax per favore. Grazie
Explanation:
Translated "Fax please. Thank you".
I believe it's laconic enough and the final "Grazie" leaves no room for further conversation between two persons who do not speak each other's language.
Also easy to pronounce.

Vorrei mandare un fax


Explanation:
That's plain spoken language, not very elegant but effective. I must add that even though the literal translation for "I want" is "Voglio" (in Italian most of the times the subject is omitted), it's more polite to say "Vorrei" (I'd like to...)
