Come on make my day !!!

Phew ..... I never realised how much we use the word MAKE until trying to use it in French ...
I wanted to say ... ( i could do some thing else).. If it makes it easier for you.
I chickened out in the end as I couldnt decide and said si c'est plus facile pour vous , but should I of used .. S'il le REND plus facile pour vous or FAIT as I think of REND as a production of some thing .... but then Im easily confused ...
ManyThanks

Re: Come on make my day !!!

Sometimes it is better to avoid make and use a specific verb such as 'faciliter' which means 'to make easy '
Si cela vous faciliterait les choses
I am sure one of the French native speakers will come up with a good idea.
However to say 'si c'est plus facile ' seems fine to me.

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.
