Mandarin speakers

Are there any Mandarin speakers here who'd be willing to help me out with some phrases in Mandarin for a Firefly fic?

I used to belong to Firefly comms, but I left several years ago before being bitten by the muse again.

I know there are sites that "translate" your phrases into another language, however, what they produce isn't necessarily fluent (or correct) Mandarin, and the phrases I'm looking for are not ones that you'd commonly find translated from English into Mandarin. For instance, nobody in my story wants to know where the toilets are, or how to get to the town hall!

If you are, or know of, a Mandarin speaker, I'd love to hear from you.

Thank you!
