Turkish help!

Hello Linguaphiles!

I am writing to y'all today for some help in translation. Here's the deal: My American friend has been dating a Turkish guy online for quite a while. Because of some circumstances, he has lost trust in her and wants to end the relationship. But she is a trustworthy friend who is crazy about him, and I want to let him know. Does anyone feel like translating part of this soap opera into Turkish for me? I don't want to write in English for a few reasons: pragmatically, his English is good but not spectacular; also, i want to communicate something so personal with him in his language. Plus, I'm a linguaphile (Duh).



Hello (..), This is (...'s) friend Cory. I am writing to you about the situation that happened. I respect where you're coming from and whatever decision you make, but, at the same time, I want to tell you that Amanda is only doing what she is doing because she has a huge heart. She will do whatever it takes to help a friend and it's one of the most beautiful things about her, the fact that she cares so much about other people. One of the reasons too she decided to do it was to learn more about the Turkish language so she could speak it better with you. Lastly, I have to tell you (..), that (...) is head-over-heals for you. She is always smiling about you and talking about you and I can assure you she is a trustworthy person.

That's all I wanted to say. Not only am I writing for my friend, but from what (...) has told me you seem like a great guy and someone that she deserves and treats her well. But at the same time, I honestly realize that the situation is complicated and, like I said, I respect how you are handling it.

With respect and friendship
Cory
