Bus/Financial - Business/Commerce (general) / Corporate e-mails for a law case
Danish term or phrase: \"fir\"
This seems to be a garbling or distortion.
Here is the entire sentence, and note the LAST WORD:

Endelig er CS gået i gang med at kigge på procurement under den nye CEO Louis Martel, er du interesseret i at genopfrise beendtskabet, eller hellere fir?

Any suggestions about "eller hellere FIR"??
Thank you!

English translation:fri
Explanation:
A typo - fir should be fri. Eller hellere fri means 'or would you rather not' or something like that. There are also other typos or spelling errors in the Danish text like 'genopfrise beendtskabet' !! Genopfriske bekendtskabet.
