{3:45} [And mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, indeed God gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary - distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to God].

I suggest,
{3:45} [And mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, verily God heralds to you the glad tidings of a word from Him, whose name is the Messiah, `Eesa (Jesus), son of Mary - handsome in [this] the nearest [life] and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to God]."

Quote:
{3:46} He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of the righteous."

I suggest,
{3:46} "And he speaks to people in the cradle and as a grown man and [he is] among the righteous."

Quote:
{3:47} She said, "My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?" [The angel] said, "Such is God; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is.

I suggest,
{3:47} She said, "Lord, how may be for me a child when has not touched me a human?" [The angel] said, "[Just] like that for you; God creates what He wills. When He has decreed a matter, then verily He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is."
