Need some help to translate something in english

Hi,

I have a letter from my mother (translated by a friend of hers)

I can fix it but I wish to have a native english speaker to soft the text a bit.

If you are interested to help me, send me a pm. I actually need this letter tonight...

But like I said it is already written, just need to make it looks better.

Nil

Re: Need some help to translate something in english

Thanks Gals! (and guys!)

I have someone who already offered me his help, let see what he can do with it.

The join of french being translating in english! French has such a rich vocabulary, it is sometimes difficult to find the proper word in english to translate the exact emotion of it.

And my parents don't speak english. My dad, a little bit but let's say it is very basic. So to write a letter to someone with something in your mind you want to tell, but said in a foreign language doesn't necessary come out the proper way.
