    Ciao a tutti!
    I'm trying to translate a legal document from Italian to English.
    It is written: Ministero per la pubblica amministrazione e per la semplificazione..
    This is my attempt: Ministry of Public Administration and Simplification.
    Could it be right???

    Bye

    :DWell...it could be right...except there is NO WAY any government that speaks AE ever "simplifies" anything.

    What does the "simplification ministry" do?

    We might use something like "paperwork reduction", but that never happens either.:eek:

    Thanks Tim!
    I think that this Ministry exists only in Italy and, to tell you the truth, I don't know what it does.. so I can't explain you..
    I think it has been created in order to simplify the chaotic Italian bureaucracy :)

    I'm sorry I can't help you with your translation - I just want to nominate this thread for the Ministry of Simplification Hall of Fame! ;)
