German to English translations [Non-PRO]
German term or phrase: if
ich hätte gerne die "if" - Fälle gewusst. Kennen Sie im Internet Grammatik-Sites, wo man nachschauen kann?. Z.B. "wenn du einen guten test schreibst, verbringe ich mit dir einen schönen abend". Ich würde in English sagen: "if you write a good test, i will have a nice evening with you". oder "if..........,würde ich mit dir gerne einen schönen abend verbringen." Ich würde sagen:"if..............,i would like to have a nice evening with you." 3.Möglichkeit wäre für mich noch "if.................,werde ich mit dir einen schönen abend verbringen." Ich würde schreiben:"if..............,i (will ?) spend a nice evening with you."
Vielen Dank für eine evtl. Antwort. Gruss, www.klauskother.de

If you make a good test, I will... (1st conditional, conditional


Explanation:
clause + present). This is the most proper for your example.
2. If you made a good test, I would (2nd conditional, condition in the past + conditional: for hypothesis.).
3. Combination present + present = automatisms. "If you push this button the machine prints out..." Results guaranteed, it always happens.
