From what I can make out the Chinese says: "He helped me get a taxi".

Can you please explain what is the difference in the meaning between "He found me a taxi" and "He helped me get a taxi"?

Re:r "He found me a taxi" First of all the word "find"" suggests that something is hard to come by so I can picture someone walking out in the street and flagging one down. On the other hand "He helped me get a taxi" is more general. He could have gone to the front desk and asked them to call one, he could have acted as interpreter etc. etc.
