晚上好! I'm trying to translate the following phrase:

A dictionary for my brother.

How can you say this using a 的 phrase to qualify the dictionary?

一本给我兄弟的词典。??

What would you say for this? Thanks!

    Hi Tabernero, I think your try is acceptable grammatically. I personally think it's some difficult to make this phrase authentic.

    I´d prefer to say 给我哥哥(弟弟)的词典(字典).

    Hope it helps.

    Tabernero, you have to be specific in Chinese about whether it's for an older or younger brother, so take Chur's advice.
