    Default Need a quick verification on translation

    Used google translator to translate:

    I am attaching an updated file. Please let me know what the status is as soon as possible. Thanks!

    into:

    Te adjunto un archivo actualizado. Por favor, hágamelo saber lo que el estado es tan pronto como sea posible. ¡Gracias!


    Was this a correct translation?

    Hi roculpsoft

    So far as google translations go, it's not the worst I've seen, but it's not good either.

    In Spanish there is a distinction on whether you are using a formal or informal way of addressing the other person. Using a formal tone, the following sounds better for me:

    "Le adjunto un archivo actualizado. Por favor dígame en qué estado se encuentra en cuanto pueda. ¡Gracias!"

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers.
    P.

    Thank you very much! I was looking for the formal option since it's a business contact I am trying to speak with.
