German Translation Hi, I am not actively learning German right now, but I have a favor to ask. My friend is getting married and her father speaks German, so she wants this translated: To the greatest of all men, you will always be my daddy and I will always be your little girl. I love you. Here's what I have: Zu dem Beste Ma(umlaut)nners, du wirst immer mein Papa sein, und ich werde immer dein kleines Ma(umlaut)dchen sein. Ich liebe dich. Thanks for your help!

I am a native German speaker and I think your translation is almost right. I would say it like that: Zu dem Großartigsten/ Besten von allen Männern, du wirst immer mein Papa sein und ich dein kleines Mädchen. Ich liebe dich. PS: The first part is a little unusually to say in German, but I do not know any alternative right now.

As Arianita said, "Zu dem Großartigsten/Besten..." sounds a bit strange. I'd just say: Dem Größten/Großartigsten/Besten aller Männer, Du wirst immer mein Papa sein, und ich werde immer Dein kleines Mädchen sein. Ich liebe Dich. Also, an alternative way to write ä, ö, ü is ae, oe, ue.
