How to say sir in Korean
Writing business emails and business letters in English
When choosing the right form of address and closing formula in business letters or business e-mails, the motto is “Know Your Audience”: Who is the addressee of the message? Do you know your first and last name? How well do you know the recipients of the email?
English communication is generally considered to be a bit more casual. Nevertheless: If in doubt, it is better to write a bit too formally. Salutation is a simple form of courtesy - don't leave it out.
If the name of the addressee is known, "Dear Ms." or "Dear Mr." is the right choice. In general, English business contacts quickly switch to communicating on a first name basis. You can tell that your counterpart agrees to communicate by first name by whether he or she only signs with his first name. If you are unsure, you can ask friendly with the phrase "Dear Paul (if I may),".
If the recipient is unknown, the formal English version of the German “Dear Sir or Madam” is recommended.
“Dear Gentlemen” is out of date and is no longer used in modern communication.
The formal heading “To whom it may concern” is appropriate for official letters and reports. In German this means something like “To whom it concerns” or “To the responsible department”.
The correct greeting depends on the destination of the recipient. In the UK context, you end a formal letter with “Yours faithfully” if the recipient is unknown. Otherwise, "Yours sincerely" is the correct formal greeting. In America, “Yours truly” or “Sincerely” are common greetings. All formulations correspond to the German phrase "With friendly greetings".
