I believe Tecendil is the best out there, but I can't promise you it will be 100% accurate or as good as a person. The word for 'it' as an object is Ten (usually seen as Den). e.g. Den cenin = I see it, Den mâd = She eats it.
It is better to be alone with God
Sindarin doesn't have a comparative (well it might but it's not one we know enough about to be able to use) so instead of 'better' I'll have to use 'best'.
Te rovaer no erui [n'Eru/na i Chîr] = It is best to be alone [with Eru/with the Lord] Eru is the god of Middle-earth but some like to use the word to refer to the Christian god also. My other suggestion is 'the Lord' to make it less Middle-earth centric.
His friendship will not fail me, nor His counsel, nor His love
i 'wend în nin ú-dhewatha, egor i 'ored în, egor i veleth în = His friendship cannot fail me, or his counsel, or his love.
In his strength, I will dare and dare and dare until I die
Vi i vellas în, berthathon chim na i lû firithon = In his strength, I will dare continuously to the time I will die
If you want to repeat 'and dare and dare' you would have to say Berthathon a verthathon a verthathon = I will dare and I will dare and I will dare
I've used the mortal verb 'to die', if you want the Elvish meaning of 'depart, fade' then replace firithon with gwannathon.
Amy: Hello! I am confused about the verb nautha-. In lesson 17 the dialog at the start has “nauthog” for “you think”, then “semin” for “I think”. Is nautha- one of the irregular verbs? I can’t find anything else it in the lessons or dictionary. Thank you!

Xandarien: Suilad! There have been two verbs used for 'to think', I apologise for the confusion. There's Nautha- 'to conceive an idea, think' and Sam- 'to think. Sam- should have been removed everywhere as it was a reconstruction that we don't need. I'll change that.
