Need email translated for girl (9)
I believe the answer is:
'girl' is the definition.
'need email translated' is the wordplay.
'translated' indicates an anagram.
'needemail' is an anagram of 'MADELEINE'.
'for' acts as a link.
(Other definitions for madeleine that I've seen before include "Woman" , "Item on sweet menu" , "Small sponge cake" .)
