Kelimesi kelimesine çeviri: Erken kuş solucanı alır.
Gerçek çeviri: Erken kalkan yol alır.

Duolingo didn't prepare me for the translation of proverbs.

Duolingo, beni atasözleri çevirmeye hazırlamadı.

Maşın satın almak için yeterli param var.

The weather lately has been refreshingly mild. But should it be a cause for celebration, or cause for alarm?

Son günlerde hava her zamanki gibi soğuk değil. Ama bu sevindirici mi, endişelendirici mi, bilemiyorum.

Maşın

It's so Azeri. :D In Turkish, it's "araba".

What if I start learning several Arabic dialects at once? Will I confuse them all?

Michael, there are no relative pronouns in Turkish! Kimin can only mean a question, not to connect two sentences. Also, you have to branch to the left (of the "I am going to marry" sentence). ;)

On another note, don't overuse -tır; in Turkish, it's not just the 3p.sg. copular, it adds an extra meaning to the sentence (an encyclopedical fact or a doubt).

You got the sentence structure right. :waytogo: I would have said:

Babası köyümüzün en güzel evine sahip olan kızla evleneceğim.

It was impossible to placate the despotic tyrant.

I don't fully understand this sentence. What does "karşı" refer to?

Karşı in this case is in attributive position, meaning "[a] counter-{noun}".

Hmm ok... then it should be something like:
A democratic president who was selected later, restored the tyrant, who had been removed from office in a counter-coup which was organized by a powerful foreign state, as a puppet.

This translation made my head hurt.
