    Proofreading of my English-Polish translation attempt.

    Dear kamka,

    Would you translate "oh, really?" or "yes, indeed?" with "ach, naprawde?" or "tak, naprawde?" into Polish?

    Thank you!
    I think, therefore I am.

    you could, theoretically use "ach, naprawdę" or just "naprawdę?", but it may be interpreted as sarcastic. I would probably use the colloquial structure "no co ty?"
    as for "yes, indeed", I think the best way is to say "dokładnie".
    it all depends on the wider context, though, and your intonation, as well.
