Edit the original English-language text first Sep 18, 2008

Subject: Business note - Edit the original English-language text first


Greetings... taHaiya Tayyiba wa b3ad...

Separate from the useful comments provided by colleagues in this thread, you might advise your customer to ask the original writer to edit and smoothen the English text, especially that last sentence.

Hope this helps. Khair, in shaa' Allah.

Regards,

Sometimes the original text itself requires correction (language structure) before proceeding with the translation .

kind regards,
