don't worry auf Deutsch

Why don't accept the translation for "don't worry" .. MACHT DIR KEINE SORGEN..

Thanks in advance

Because it's "Mach dir keine Sorgen" or "Macht euch keine Sorgen".

Exactly!

The verb sich Sorgen machen is reflexive, and so the form of the verb has to fit with the reflexive object.

Otherwise it's like "She washed himself", which makes no sense.
