    Default Formal correspondence

    Hi,

    How do you say " I am looking forward for your response" at the end of a formal legal letter?

    Many thanks.

    Hi Alex,

    I'm not sure what you mean by a formal legal letter, however, "Espero su respuesta." should be acceptable.

    Hi there...
    Depending on how formal is your letter, but usually we would say:
    "Quedo a la espera de su respuesta"
    "Espero su pronta respuesta"

    Hi!

    «A la espera» es un galicismo, por ende, totalmente inaceptable en un profesional de la traducción. Te recomiendo que recurras a la locución correcta que es «en espera».
    Por otra parte, tengo entendido que la combinación sintagmática de look forward es to y no for; por ejemplo, I am looking forward to your reply, o bien, I look forward to doing something.

    Atentamente.
