Стиль письма

 

ПРОСТОТА. В деловых письмах следует избегать устаревших, помпезных и высокопарных, а также неуместно "интеллектуальных" фраз, т.к., с одной стороны, это усложняет понимание передаваемой информации, с другой стороны, в ряде случаев может создать нежелательное или даже негативное впечатление об авторе письма.

 

ВЕЖЛИВОСТЬ. Независимо от избранного вами стиля - официального или неофициального - вы должны быть вежливы, избегая резких или двусмысленных выражений. Настойчивость также не должна превратиться в грубость.

 

ИДИОМАТИКА, РАЗГОВОРНЫЕ ШТАМПЫ, ПРОСТОРЕЧЬЕ. Главное избрать естественный тон письма, соответствующий ситуации. В любом случае нейтральный и выдержанный на протяжении всего письма стиль наиболее предпочтителен. Будьте особо аккуратны в использовании идиоматических выражений, сленга и разговорных штампов, поскольку будучи иностранцем, вы можете не почувствовать до конца всех стилистических особенностей и, таким образом, попасть в неловкую ситуацию или быть неверно понятым.

We acknowledge receipt of your letter dated Feb 9. We have to advise you of the delay in shipment as we have received a fax from the shipowners of the M.V. Helen.

The vessel sailed from the port of loading at the stipulated time but due to a severe storm on the Mediterranean Sea it had to call at the Greek port of Piraeus. Now the vessel is on the way to the port of destination.

We will do our utmost to keep you informed of the position of the vessel. Our shipping agents will cable us the moment the vessel enters the port.

 

Sincerely yours,

A.Adams
