Hi,

Here are a few suggestions on how to reduce it.They should get you started with your project.
(quoted from an English textbook in China)

My question: Can "get you started with your project" be replaced by "get you to start with your project"?

Many thanks!

    No.

    They should get you started with your project. = help you to start

    "get you to start with your project"? = cause you to start; make/force/encourage you to start
