    Sto per inviare un ringraziamento ad una collega straniera che è stata rapidissima nell'aiutarmi. Vorrei scrivere:
    "non so come ringraziarti per il tuo rapido aiuto".

    Mi date una mano? è il primo post che faccio, spero di non avere fatto una richiesta fuori luogo ;). Grazie!

    Ciao! Benvenuta!

    I don't know how to thank you for being so quick in helping me.

    Io scriverei così. :)

    "Helping" as a noun means a portion of food - "porzione";)

    Eg He had two big helpings of mashed potato.

    Thank you Murphy,I was doing three things at the same time.....
    "Don't know how to thank you for your quick/prompt help"
    (I made the mistake while I love mashed potatoes...yum)

    'I don't know how to thank you for your prompt response' is the best translation in my opinion..

    Response is for "risposta"
    Help is for "aiuto"

    Ahh good point, IlPetaloCremisi's response is the best one in that case but let me offer an alternative: 'I dont know how to thank you for helping me so quickly.'

    We normally say "I don't know how to thank you enough"

    "enough" is usually in there somewhere.
