Assalaamualaikum brother Li

Welcome to the forum

There are numerous translations of the Qur’an with differences, whether linguistic, stylistic or substantive. There is no "best" translation of the Qur'an ...all of them are just approximations and every translation has benefits as well as deficiencies.

Sahih International is very readable and straightforward  whereas Pickthall has an ornate style of writing.

Both Sahih International and  Pickthall are good translations and come highly recommended...you will have to see which style appeals to you more personally.So choose either one and InshaAllah it will bring benefit.

God bless




La ilaha ill-Allah, Muhammadur Rasulullah
