Italian term or phrase: stampare su lucido
Itemized in a bulleted list below: "Stampare su carta".
Can anyone confirm that the translation is: "print to transparency" which is well supported in the technical literature.
An earlier question on ProZ.com drew an approved answer that English "trace" = lucido. I believe the responder had "tracing paper" in mind. This is probably not applicable in this case since the "tracing" is already done on computer graphics.

Many thanks, also for noting that "trace = lucido" is not very good.
