When do you know you need to get something translated

I have reciepts, delivery dockets, invoices and bank statements that are in Italian. Do I need to have these translated or can I just explain what they are for eg. I have a small reciept (like you get at Coles or Woolworths) for a microwave and cordless phone when we moved over but looking at the reciept you can't tell what it is for, it just has item numbers, prices and a brand name and the other details would be impossible to understand if you didn't know Italian.

I have a 4 page document which is a declaration from the notary that I live in the apartment and obviously I know that needs to be translated but there are things that I know unless they spoke Italian they would have to rely on my description of what everything for but aren't actual documents.

Hi! The only documents we had translated were official documents and our rent contract as those were important documents. For anything that wasn't in English including bank statements, I just stuck a note on it with my own translations and explanations. They didn't seem to have a problem with it.

Which Australian Embassy are you submitting your application to?

Thanks for that, its a relief. I believe we are applying from Italy at the Berlin embassy.
