    Hey,

    I have an assignment in which I have to use the conditional tense and I am trying to say

    "In my dreams I would like to work as a novelist but I know this is unlikely. If I cannot do this, I would like to work in translation or the publishing industry"

    Thank you, any tips/hints would be really useful :)

    Nei miei sogni vorrei lavorare come romanziere ma so che è improbabile. Se non riuscissi a farlo, vorrei lavorare nel campo della traduzione oppure nell'editoria.

    Hmmmm well discounting 'in my dreams' because I can't make it sound right however hard I try it ends up as something like.
    My other problem is it's supposesd to be an exercise on the conditional about what we want in our futures but I only seem to be using 'Vorrei' which obviously isn't going to show range/depth etc - any suggestions?!
