    Empowering, ensuring, making an effort will make it possible to

    Hi,

    I translated a Turkish text to English. I would appreciate it If you would correct.

    "Empowering Turkish people in the abroad countries they live, ensuring them to benefit the provided opportunities equally, making an effort for their high education as much as possible, enhancing their ties with Turkey will make it possible to implement a successful public diplomacy through them."

    Rewrite it using two or three shorter, simpler sentences. Do not use the phrase "the abroad countries" or the phrase "benefit the provided opportunities" or the phrase "the provided opportunities" or the phrase "making an effort for their high education" or the phrase "high education".

    Remember when translating that sentences often work differently in different languages. I sometimes translate short texts from French and often find that I write two or three English sentences for one French one. It occasionally goes the other way, too.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Turkish writing style sometimes requires the same tactic.
