    Hi,

    Another sentence I was challenged to translate was "The bomb was defused just 5 minutes before it was due to go off." My attempt was

    Bomba, patlayacağı zamandan sadece beş dakika önce etkisiz hale getirildi.

    Correct? Natural?

    That sounds good to me. :thumbsup:
    Alternatively you can say: Bomba, patlamasına yalnızca beş dakika kala etkisiz hâle getirildi.
