so i have no idea, why they add the "until the end of my contract" in that sentence.
Yep, i was going to check that myself. Strange translation indeed.

To clarify it further: i am not totally sure how the english phrase "if i may" is used and if that's a 100% correct translation. "Wenn ich in Buffalo bleiben darf" is meant in they way of "if i am allowed to stay in buffalo". Does "if i may" reflect this? I welcome your help

And to close this: if someone really wants to read something into his words, he might be saying the exact opposite of what i proposed in my last post: that he wants to stay here!
