Italian term or phrase: to err
Buonasera colleghi,
si tratta in realtà di una frase presa da un testo di trascrizione del linguaggio parlato. Sono interrogatori che riguardano alcune operazioni di borsa e francamente mi risultano poco intelleggibili: we estimated that the impact on the market was for the people to hedge, and we *wanted to err on the side of being sort*. And also we didn't you know, we wanted to take account...
Quest'ultima affermazione, secondo voi, viene negata o no?cioè è "Volevamo prendere in considerazione" o "non volevamo.."
grazie mille a tutti!
buona serata
