Although she has lots of talents, but since she didn't get the right platform to prove her talents, she often lags behind in her life.

Questions
1) Can we use although or even though, since and but in same sentence like above, in order to explain the scenarios like above?
2) Can we we use although interchangeably with even though while speaking or writing?

Although she has lots of talent, since she hasn't had the right platform to prove it, she is lagging behind in life.

I have fixed the grammar, but I don't know what it means to 'lag behind in life'.

No: too many conjunctions. But = although. You can do this:

She has lots of talent, but since she hasn't had the right platform to prove it, she is lagging behind in life.
Wonder1232) Can we we use although interchangeably with even though while speaking or writing?
Usually. Even though is a bit stronger.
Mister MicawberAlthough she has lots of talent, since she hasn't had the right platform to prove it, she is lagging behind in life.I have fixed the grammar, but I don't know what it means to 'lag behind in life'.
Sorry, I made a mistake actually it should be 'she is lagging behind in life' and you corrected it. Thanks for the grammar fixes.

So although = even though = but?

And whenever we use although and even though in the sentences like above, we shouldn't use but, right?
Mister MicawberUsually. Even though is a bit stronger.
Ok so we can use both of them interchangeably based on the situation, right?

Yes, those are essentially right.
Mister MicawberYes, those are essentially right.
Thanks a lot :-)

But (even though my condition tempted you to reject me) you did not despise me or turn me away.
But you did not despise me or turn me away, (even though my condition tempted you to reject me).

Sorry I'm finding a bit difficult in grasping the above sentences formatting, Can you please help me on how I need to read the above formatted sentences?
Read the bracketed portions as if they were just one word (which they are, in a way—one clause); then you will see that 'but' and 'even though' are not collocated in that sentence.
