Looks pretty good. bir paket would be better

I´m not sure about kimse, I thought that was for negative sentences.

Can someone help us out about the usage of kimse?

Kimse senin için Türkiye´den paket göndermedi. Kimse means nobody but because verb is already negative I guess it should be understood as anybody here. I dont know if it makes sense in English.

Anybody didnt send a package for you from Turkey.

It really sounds weird. How about translating it with double negative?

Nobody didnt send a package for you from Turkey.

It´s E to T. Is this correct?

 

Someone has sent a parcel for you from Turkey.

 

Birisi senin için Türkiye´den bir paket gönderdi.

 

... also, it´s confusing because the dictionary here says this:

kimse
someone, somebody. 
2. anyone, anybody. 
3. (with a negative verb) nobody, no one.
