Will translating “I am marrying you” result in marriage

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: There are some websites and apps on the internet which help us learn foreign languages. Now on these sites we have to translate from one language to another. If they ask me to translate a sentence, I translate it and the translation is “I am marrying you”. When I send the translation, if they read it with two witnesses and accepts it, does it make a marriage?


A: No.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
