  5. Question: Translation


Question: Translation

"Eine kurze Geschichte meiner Mutter/Zum Geburtstag"

What does this exactly translate to? I guessed "a short story for my mother's birthday", but there seems to be multiple translations. Can someone help?

It might also be "A short history of my mother for her birthday." That might make more sense.

Even better might be: "A short tale about my mother for her birthday."

See http://www.dict.cc/?s=Geschichte for all the translations possible for "Geschichte."
