Business Chinese Correspondence

April 09, 2010, 06:15 PM posted in General Discussion

Does anyone know of a good resource for Chinese business correspondence?  Specifically, I'm mostly interested in e-mail etiquette.  In replies to my e-mails, I seem to get a lot of "看到你的来信很高兴“ openings and "祝你顺利“ closings, along with wishes for my good health.  I don't feel comfortable simply aping these phrases and was looking for a guide to what is appropriate, levels of formality, etc.

Anyway, any ideas would be appreciated.

I haven't really looked for such resources, but we'd be glad to help on ChinesePod. Just ask us in community and we can also do some lessons about it if you give us specific requirements.
