    Hi, could you help me with the translation of the following sentence?
    Con la presente comunicazione porto a tua conoscenza che in data..

    My attempt is :
    I would like to inform you with the following act that on..

    Thank you so much

    I would largely agree with underhouse:
    I hereby bring to your attention that on ...

    But I'm a little confused by what seems like a mixture of registers - the informal "tu" combined with expressions like "presente comunicazione" and "portare a conoscenza", which I have previously usually seen only in formal contexts.

    Probably just lack of experience on my part :eek:.

    You are right, baldpate: the register of the Italian sentence is formal so one would expect "a sua conoscenza".
