Need some help with croatian! (for my story)

So the MC in my story is from Croatia and I have this phone call between him and his mom. And I’d love to possibly make the conversation in Croatian language. The thing is I don’t speak it, and I don’t trust google translator enough to use it. Can anyone help?

Edit. My previous helper is suspended, I didn’t manage to get any help from them. So I’m still very much in need of help! If anyone who speaks Croatian could help with translation!?

Awesome!!

Here’s the dialogue in english:

I hope this isn’t too long.

Summary

MAX
Hello.
IVANA
Hello ! How is my handsome son?
MAX
Please don’t talk like that.
But I’m doing fine. How are things back in Croatia?
IVANA
It’s good.
I was actually calling to ask you to come visit us in next month.
Or maybe possibly late this month.
As you know your fathers birthday is the Second of October. So it’s coming soon.
MAX
Yeah I know his birthday is coming up. Isn’t he turning 50?
IVANA
Yes exactly.
So if possible you could come celebrate with us.
Your brother and his girlfriend are also coming to visit us from Poland.
And I could use some help with organizing the birthday party… so could you already come on the 29th of this month so you could help me?
MAX
Oh Jakov has a girlfriend ? Good for him.
But yeah I’d love to come visit and help you for a few days.
MAX
I just need to ask for some vacation from my job.
Though I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to come.
IVANA
Amazing to hear!
What was your job again? Your dad is asking.
MAX
(…)
choice “Cashier” {
MAX
I’m a cashier at a grocery store.
IVANA
Alright I’ll tell your father that.
} “Waiter” {
MAX
I’m a waiter in this local restaurant.
IVANA
Very interesting.
I’ll tell your father that.
}“Assistant”{
MAX (talk_phone_neutral_loop)
I’m an assistant in this one company.
}
IVANA
Tell me more about your job.
What kind of people work there.
Is the pay good?
And tell me what your apartment is like?
When can we come visit you there?
MAX
You want to visit me here?
IVANA
Yes of course honey, you’re still your baby. We want to make sure you’re living ok.
MAX
I’m almost 24, so please stop talking to me like that. You can do that to Jakov.
Also I think I’ve got the idea on how I live so no need to worry.
IVANA
Alright fine. But we will visit you at some point. We’d love to see around France.
But tell me now about your job.
MAX
I’m sorry I can’t tell right now. I have to end this call.
I promised to go have dinner with my co-workers.
So if I don’t start getting ready I’ll be late.
IVANA
Alright that’s understandable.
Remember to ask about getting time off from work. And check online for some flights and then inform me about it.
MAX (talk_phone_happy_loop)
Yes, I’ll remember.
I really need to start to get going.
&MAX is listen_phone_happy_loop
IVANA
Oh I almost forgot!
If there’s anyone you’re dating, you’re welcome to invite them to the birthday party too.
It’d only be fair. Plus your brother is bringing his date too, so you can too.
MAX (talk_phone_neutral_loop)
Yeah I’ll keep that in mind.
I’ll inform you in a later date.
Bye! Say hello to dad for me.
&MAX is listen_nod_neutral_loop
IVANA
I will!
Good bye.

Ohhh I didn’t know. Thanks for telling me.

Bump. Still in need of help with Croatian!

I can help you

Awesome!! The dialogue is already in this thread so if you can translate it to Croatian that’d be so great!

Okay I’ll do it right now

Here you go
MAX
zdravo.
IVANA
Zdravo! Kako je moj zgodni sin?
MAX
Molim te, nemoj tako razgovarati.
Ali meni ide dobro. Kako su stvari u Hrvatskoj?
IVANA
dobro je
Zapravo sam vas zvao da vas posjetim da posjetite nas sljedećih mjesec dana.
Ili možda krajem ovog mjeseca.
Kao što znate rođendan vaših očeva je drugi oktobar. Dakle, uskoro dolazi
MAX
Da, znam da dolazi njegov rođendan. Zar ne navršava 50 godina?
IVANA
Da točno.
Ako je moguće, možete doći slaviti s nama.
Vaš brat i njegova djevojka također nam dolaze u posjet iz Poljske.
I mogao bih koristiti neku pomoć pri organizaciji rođendanske zabave … pa da li biste već mogli doći 29. ovog mjeseca pa da mi pomognete?
MAX
Oh Jakov ima djevojku? Dobro za njega.
Ali da, volio bih doći nekoliko dana i pomoći vam.
MAX
Samo bih trebao tražiti odmor od svog posla.
Iako sam prilično siguran da ću moći doći.
IVANA
Nevjerojatno čuti!
Koji je bio tvoj posao opet? - pita tvoj otac.
MAX
(…)
choice “Cashier” {
MAX
Blagajnica sam u trgovini.
IVANA
Dobro, reći ću to vašem ocu.
} “Waiter” {
MAX
Ja sam konobar u ovome lokalnom restoranu.
IVANA
Vrlo zanimljivo.
To ću reći vašem ocu.
}“Assistant”{
MAX (talk_phone_neutral_loop)
Pomoćnik sam u ovoj tvrtki.
}
IVANA
Reci mi više o svom poslu.
Kakvi ljudi tamo rade.
Je li plaća dobra?
I reci mi kakav je tvoj stan?
Kada možemo doći tamo da vas posjetimo?
Zelig li me posjetiti ovdje?
IVANA
Da, dušo, još si dijete. Želimo biti sigurni da živiš dobro
MAX
Imam skoro 24 godine, pa molim te prestani tako sa mnom razgovarati. To možete učiniti Jakovu.
Isto tako mislim da imam ideju o tome kako živim, tako da ne moram brinuti.
IVANA
U redu. Ali mi ćemo vas posjetiti u nekom trenutku. Voljeli bismo vidjeti po Francuskoj.
Ali reci mi sad o svom poslu.
MAX
Žao mi je što ne mogu sada reći Moram prekinuti ovaj poziv.
Obećao sam da ću ići večerati sa svojim kolegama.
Dakle, ako se ne počnem pripremati, zakasnit ću.
IVANA
U redu, to je razumljivo.
Ne zaboravite pitati o slobodnom vremenu od posla. I provjerite na internetu neke letove, a zatim me obavijestite o tome.
MAX (talk_phone_happy_loop)
Da, sjetit ću se
Zaista moram početi ići.
&MAX is listen_phone_happy_loop
IVANA
Oh, skoro sam zaboravio!
Ako imate nekoga s kime se družite, možete ih pozvati i na rođendansku zabavu.
To bi bilo samo pošteno. Osim toga, i tvoj brat donosi svoj sastanak, pa možeš i ti.
MAX (talk_phone_neutral_loop)
Da, to ću imati na umu.
Obavestit ću vas kasnije kasnije Bye! Pozdravi tatu za mene.
&MAX is listen_nod_neutral_loop
IVANA
Hoću!
Doviđenja.
