    Hi again. This question is about how to express happiness like this, for another person. Context: a young member of our family just got a great job - the perfect job for her - and we are all thrilled.
    I'd like to say -
    We are all very happy for her.
    Siamo tutti molto contenti per lei.

    Is that OK? Or do I need a noun after her, like happy for her success.
    .... molto contenti per il suo successo

    Thanks!

    You can also say "felici", which makes you even happier. :D

    Great, thanks. There will be more posts (tomorrow) as now I have to figure out how to describe her job! :)
