"Dia menuliskan surat untuk ibunya."

Translation:She is writing a letter for her mom.

July 1, 2019



I thought "untuk ibunya" could be to his/her mom. How does Indonesian differentiate the for/to here? I'm guessing the me- -kan means for, but then how do I clearly write "She is writing a letter for to mom."


She is writing a letter to her mom = Dia menulis surat kepada/untuk ibunya.
