I wrote to my grandfather's comune for his birth certificate. I received the following Email.
In data odierna le spedisco l'estratto di nascita su modello internazionale del suo avo; non le chiediamo nessun rimborso per l'estratto.
Using a dictionary (not knowing Italian), I translate this as follows:
As of today I am sending them [you] the birth certificate on the international form (model) of its [your] grandfather. We do not ask [them] for any reimbursement for the extract.
But "on the international model" doesn't quite make sense to me. So I assume this is an idiomatic expression. What does it mean? Is there some question I should be asking the comune in response?
Many thanks, Peg
