    This time an easy sentence:
    Possible translation (in my opinion :)):
    Take care.

    By the way if I want to say:

    Ciao whisher!

    I favour "Until next time . . . " but wait for those who know more than I.

    Cheers!

    Vuoi salutare qualcuno prima di andar via? Puó andare bene: See you next time?.

    Yes, claudine, I think you are right. The trouble is, we don't usually say "Until we meet again" which is what it really means, because that is more formal than colloquial. "Alla prossima volta" is fairly colloquial and much used in Italian, but I am trying to think of an actual equivalent which is colloquial in English.

    Something like "Til later . . ." would probably be more colloquial . . . but it is not really an exact translation.

    In italiano viene omessa 'volta'.

    "Una delle tre" = "one of these three" in English. Is that what you meant?

    Wait for others on the "alla prossima" question . . . I am past thinking! :)

    Direi "See ya later!" ("Ya" is slang for "you")

    "Una delle tre sarà giusta" è "One of the three must be right"
