I want to say "She is my beautiful best friend and I love her to bits."

What I've come up with is: Hi yw fy prydferth frind gorau, a rwyf wrth fy modd hi (to bits).

How do you say 'love someone to bits' in Welsh?

    Yet another Google Welsh translate failure! It really is bad, it translates word for word and takes an English word order but welsh has a different word order.


    She is my best friend is "Fy ffrind gorau yw hi" or "fy ffrind gorau ydy hi" (South Wales v North Wales usage).

    To add beautiful, add prydferth after ffrind gorau.

    I love her to bits is "dw i'n ei charu (hi) i ddarnau"

    The bit in brackets is optional and is usually used in speech

    I'd say "hi yw fy ffrind gorau del i, a dwi'n dwli arni".

    "Dwli ar" is the idiomatic, non-literal translation of "love to bits". You can't say "caru i ddarnau" (literal translation) since it doesn't make sense in Welsh. It would be like in English if you said you loved someone to quarters - people just don't say that ;)

    Prydferth while perfectly ok is also quite formal, hence my use of "del".
