Need help translating a sentence
I do not trust my Japanese so much.

Anyway need help translating: "Happiness resembles glass"

Thank you in advance!

Google translates it as "幸福はガラスに似ている:KOUFUKU WA GARASU NI NITE-IRU". It is quite correct.

Are you satisfied ? It depends on your purpose of this translation if the translation is good enough.

It looks correct to me. I would have used SHIAWASE but KOUFUKU seems more appropriate. Will learn why exactly NI and IRU are used :)

Thank you very much, kind sir!

"NI" is used to indicate direction like as "to" in "resemble to".

"IRU" means "exist" and works as be-verb.
