English to Italian translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering
English term or phrase:Root cause
It is for a web site localization. I do have only simple strings. No context available.
I have only seen this expression used in English in the sense of referring to the main, basic cause or reason for the occurrence of something. Without additional context provided, I am unsure if here it has some further, unrelated computer context. If not, the above would be the translation: for example, "The computer is not working. The root cause is a malfunction in the hard drive." Good luck: Gary! :-)
