You're welcome! I hope you get it sorted.

I cannot help any further, google translate is not great, but you could try it!

My mandarin isn't fantastic by any means, want to post what you have here?

I can tell you real quickly if I can, or cannot be of help.

Have you tried Google translate, they'll give you Pinyin, and sometimes they do much better than other online sites since they can translate phrases in context (as opposed to other sites that do things word for word/character for character.

I can also help, but I'm really rusty.

Do you still need help? I could as I'm bilingual.

However, I found google.com/translate to be mostly useful as well in terms of translating phrases to phrases.
