English translation of forte


The Italian word 'forte' translates to 'strong' in English. It can be used in various contexts, much like the English adjective. For instance, it can describe physical strength (as in, a 'persona forte' meaning a 'strong person') or it can refer to strong flavors (e.g., 'un gusto forte' means 'a strong taste'). Note that when used before the noun in a sentence, it means 'loud' or 'hard', while if it's placed after the noun, it maintains the meaning of 'strong' or 'powerful'.
