I need the Italian translation of the following sentences:
Dear Sir:
I have visited your offices for the renewal of my passport about two
months ago, and you told me that you were waiting for a fax from the
Consolato Italiano in Buenos Aires Argentina (because my passport was
originally issued by them). What should I do now? I need my passport
as soon as possible.
Kind regards,

Caro Signore:

Ho visitato il tuo ufficio per rinnovare il mio passaporto
approsimamente due mesi fa, e' mi hai informato che aspetti una Fax
dal Consulato Italiano del Buenos Aires, Argentina (dacche'il mio
passaporto origina da Argentina).  Che cosa devo fare ora? Mi serve il
mio passaporto al piu presto possibile.

Cordiali Saluti,

I have no references for this...I'm just Italian!  :)

I hope you get your passport really soon. Good luck--Italian

A Presto!

Hello aliciadenney,
Thank you for your answer. Just a question.. is your translation using
a formal approach? I am asking this because I've seen that you use "il
tuo" . I would prefer in this case a formal approach. If that's not
the case in your translation, could you please change it?
Thanks a lot,

Sure I can!
I was simply translating the words that you have previously posted in
your research request.  While there are a million (some better) ways
to say that which you have stated in your request, I did not feel like
it was my place to take liberties, so I went with what you had.

If you are comparing what we have translated for you to the
translation that was posted as a comment, you must understand that
Babelfish (or any of the other given translating devices on the
Internet) convelutes wording into comedic proportions.  :)


Here is a version of your letter that, while is certainly not a
direct/exact transliteration, is quite formal.

Thanks again for using Google Answers.  Best of luck.

Egregio Signore:

Circa due mesi fa, sono venuto nei vostri uffici per rinnovare il mio
passaporto.  Voi mi avete informato che aspettate per una FAX dal
Consolato Italiano in Buenos Aires, Argentina (il mio passaporto e? di
origine Argentino).  Adesso, cosa dovrei fare?  Ho bisogno del mio
passaporto al piu presto possible.

Distinti Saluti o Cordiali Saluti o Mille Grazie,

Egregio signore,
sono stato presso i Vostri uffici per il rinnovo del mio passaporto
circa 2 mesi fa, e mi avete detto che stavate aspettando un fax dal
Consolato Italiano di Buenos Aires Argentina (perchè il mio passaporto
è stato originariamente rilasciato da loro). Cosa posso fare adesso?
Ho bisogno del mio passaporto il prima possibile.
