Dafny does not have any pre-defined string or float types. If you don't need a lot of operations on them, then you can use sequences (of what would be characters) for strings. You can also simulate floats by a pair of integers, one to represent the mantissa and one to represent the exponent. Some day, I'd like to see strings or reals in Dafny (are you interested and in a position to add them to the Dafny implementation?).

For more information on how to define datatypes (including records and enumerations), see the Dafny quick reference.
