dave said:Can't give a translation unfortunately, but it means alone, without assistance. E.g:
Donald Duck was the first person to sail round the world single-handed
A: Did you know John's wife left hand over a year ago?
B: Yes, and he's managed to look after those three children single-handed
Bruce Lee killed all those baddies single-handed
Does that help? Can you now provide the translation?!

She single-handedly raised three children.
The knight single-handedly killed all the kingdom's enemies.
