Can you translate Act 4 scene 3 in modern English? I don't understand this scene very well so can you translate the Act and scene for me.

You're in luck—that's already been done.
If you click on the tab within the enotes study guide to the play that reads "eText," you'll get the script of the play. Click on a specific act, and then scene, and you'll see it in parallel columns. The column on the left gives the play in Shakespearean English; the column on the right gives each speech in modern English.

You can also click on the "eNotes" tab and then on "Summary and Analysis" and get, well, a summary of each scene, and an analysis. If I were really stuck, I'd read the summary, then read the modern English version.
