【商業英語】英語祝賀他人必用詞句(Frankie Chan)

【商業英語】英語祝賀他人必用詞句(Frankie Chan)

在西方文化中,如得知朋友訂婚、結婚、生小孩、升職等,都會寫電郵或發短信祝賀。祝賀訊息可短可長,長則可當作一封書信,短則可簡單在WhatsApp上送出一兩句祝福。基本上,格式沒有特定的要求,但內容及措辭必須做到真誠、自然及親切。雖然它的內容比較隨意,可以自由發揮,但我們也絕不能大意,因為往往最簡單的東西就是最容易出錯的地方。

當得知同事晉升或在事業上取得巨大的成就時,除了致電祝賀,我們還可以寫封簡短的電郵或發短訊祝賀。這種友好的往來,對你建立人際關係與鞏固友好商業合作有莫大的益處。在祝賀同事或朋友晉升時,我們不必過多寒暄,開首便可以開門見山地祝賀對方獲得晉升,然後可以表達自己對對方工作的欣賞以及成就的肯定。在結尾的部分,可使用較口語化的語氣再次恭賀對方獲得晉升,並以此結束。大家可參考以下的例子:

Dear Mr. White,

Congratulations on your recent promotion to head the Marketing Department of Modern Education.

My fellow managers and I are delighted that your work in the marketing field has been recognized and we join in sending you our very best wishes for the future.
