Quote:
{12:54} And the king said, "Bring him to me; I will appoint him exclusively for myself." And when he spoke to him, he said, "Indeed, you are today established [in position] and trusted."

I suggest,
{12:54} And the king said, "Bring him to me [so that] I appoint him exclusively for myself." And when he spoke to him, he said, "verily, you are today established [in position] and trustworthy."

Quote:
{12:55} [Joseph] said, "Appoint me over the storehouses of the land. Indeed, I will be a knowing guardian."

I suggest,
{12:55} [Joseph] said, "Appoint me over the treasuries of the land. Verily, I am a knowledgeable keeper."

Quote:
{12:56} And thus We established Joseph in the land to settle therein wherever he willed. We touch with Our mercy whom We will, and We do not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good.

I suggest,
{12:56} And thus We established Joseph in the land to settle therein wherever he willed. We reach with Our mercy whom We will, and We do not squander the reward of the benevolent.

Quote:
{12:57} And the reward of the Hereafter is better for those who believed and were fearing God.

I suggest,
{12:57} And the reward of the Hereafter is better for those who believed and were watchful [of God].

Nice! I would only modify part of the first verse to "verily, you are with us today established [in position] and trustworthy."

Yes! Thanks for noticing it,
{12:54} And the king said, "Bring him to me; I will appoint him exclusively for myself." And when he spoke to him, he said, "Verily, you are today with us established [in position] and trustworthy."
