    can you translate please

    Last Saturday was Remembrance Day, a day when we remember the contribution made by Australian service men and women - and it's a big contribution.

    I assume you mean "correct" instead of "translate".

    It's fine, except "service men and women". Since they are both single words, you'll need to say servicemen and servicewomen or members of Australia's armed forces.

    Usually the plural is used. Thus it would be:
    ...the contributions made by Australian servicemen and servicewomen.
    Then you might say something like:
    Those contributions have been significant and deeply felt.
