Italian to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
Italian term or phrase:bilancio
I can't decide between 'financial statement' and 'balance sheet'.
Here is the sentence: Quantificazione indebitamento finanziario utilizzando il confronto con i valori di bilancio (consolidato) degli anni 1999-2003.
Thank you Marian, I appreciate that. On the other hand, you were quicker than I and your answer, after all, was correct – although you messed up the explanation a bit :-) If potra can't make up her mind, I'm happy for her to close without grading :-)
don't sell youself short, hon. as bobby fischer used to say after he'd made a flukey move and managed to win (as wlmost always), "a good player is always lucky". you were right even when you were wrong. shows just how good you are.
My answer was probably too quick... feel free to give the points to Adele who was more accurate than I... I should remember to think twice when it comes to Italian, with which I am fairly familiar, but generally avoid translating.....
well, i'm an adele fan, but marian quite clearly isn't an idiot (has over 24 thousand kudoz points and can charge 100 bucks per hour) and her answer was, after all, correct (which means that bilancio IS ALSO balance sheet).
i'm completely confused by the various answers and peer agreements. adele says it's NOT balance sheet and then proposes exactly the same answer. jim says that it's NOT NOT NOT balance sheet and then agrees that it is.
Automatic update in 00:
3 mins confidence: peer agreement (net): +2
Explanation: bilancio is balance sheet... and it make sense that the amounts would be compared with the amounts shown on the balance sheet....
