Salchu li


Explanation:
Indeed forgiven is nislach. However, no one will say ani nislachti for I am forgiven. What you should say in order to sound Hebrew is: salchu li al..........
Salchu: sameh, laned, het, vav.
Li: lamed, yood.

I hope it helps.

Forgiven


Explanation:
I respectfully disagree. It is correct to say "hu nislach" for example (he was forgiven). "Salchu lo" is correct as well but it means they forgave him. It may not be as common to conjugate the verb in the ni'fal form but it is correct.
My sources are a Hebrew verbs book with conjugation of the forms and the Alcalay dictionary.
Thanks.
