L'espressione "to see to it" vuol dire "fare in modo che..."?

Umm...E posibile, ma puoi dare un po di piu del contesto con la frase "to see to it"? :?

Perche "to see to it" puo significare che "guardi a vedere che e fatto".

In ogni modo, "Fare in modo che..." significa "to do it in such a way that...."

Spero che questo ti aiuta :) :)

Ecco quello che dice Garzanti:

v.intr. e prep. badare a, avere cura di; occuparsi di: will you - to the luggage?, vuoi occuparti dei bagagli? / to - to it that..., assicurarsi che...; provvedere a che.


C'è anche questo:

to see to: pensare a, badare a, occuparsi di: don’ t worry, I’ ll see to it non preoccuparti, ci penso io; see to it that you are punctual bada di essere puntuale;

Spero che ti aiuti! :)
A presto

Thank you so much, Peter.
Now I know I did grasp the meaning of that construction.

Ciao.
