    Default Can someone translate this for me?

    My novia (the English version of that word is banned?) is taking her Spanish proficiency test this Wednesday to get into grad school to teach Spanish. I want to send her a text that morning wishing her luck/telling her she'll do fine, but I don't know Spanish well enough to know how to translate it myself. This is what I want to say:

    "Hey babe, you're going to do great today. Just relax and take your time"


    This is probably very easily translated, but I'm not proficient enough to know how

    Thank you for anyone who helps!

    It's better this way:

    Hola cariño, lo vas a hacer genial. Solo relajate y tomate tu tiempo.

    Good luck men !!

    Fallout gives a great translation, flows perfectly but among guys.
    For a girl I would go with odissey's.

    Hola, aquí tienes mi versión:

    Hola, mi amor. Te va a ir muy bien hoy. Hazlo tranquila y tómate tu tiempo.

    I wouldn't use the word "relájate" because for me that's when you are in some kind of leisure activity (not this case). For me, "relax" means that she has to be calm, without being tense.

    Relax and "Relajarse" it's the same word... only becouse it's in latin, don't means it change his meaning

    Sorry fallout, I don't think I understand your point.
