Hi. What do you traslate "I am happy for you"? I would say "Sono felice per te.". Thanks
Si, mi sembra perfetto!
Thank you Cal!
Is this English expression translated literally into Italian or is there a specific way to say it?
If context helps - my friend just told me his interview went well and I would like to say "I'm happy for you."
Thanks in advance.
Sono contento per te...
(but certainly wait for the natives...and it wouldn't hurt to have you finish the sentence to add more context.)
I'd probably just say "good for you"
although I don't think "I'm happy for you" is wrong
Actually, I had thought that there might have been something wrong with my answer, but I figured you meant "from" Italian and not "into"....
I see. So would "good for you" just be "buono per te" ?
Actually it would be "buon per te"
but...you'd have to ask a teacher why that is!!!
It's probably just a matter of sound...
Anyway, tell your friend:
sono molto contento per te!
