Hi all,

How would you translate "fingerprint submission"? In the U.S., to have the FBI check your criminal record, you have your fingerprints taken, then send the fingerprint data (or a physical card) to the FBI. This is called a "fingerprint submission".

指紋提交??

    指纹提交 sounds a bit weird, since 提交 is a verb. It reads "fingerprint submit" in Chinese. I wonder if there's a good translation for the word "submission".

    I would say "被提交的指纹" (lit. the fingerprint that was submitted). Maybe you might wanna post the complete sentence if that translation doesn't sound good enough to you.
