    Our company

    Thank you for correcting this sentence.


    Our company has undergone a major change recently. However, he who will surf on the company's site will find no mention of this.

    Hello [I'm not a teacher],

    but when I read your sentence the second part seems to me not good. Are your sure about your construction 'he who will' ?

    Have a nice day.

    It's a bit antiquated! Personally, I would use:

    However, anyone who surfs the company's site will find no mention of this.
    OR
    However, anyone surfing the company's site...

    In these days of political correctness, you may also wish to avoid using "he" to refer to people in general. You will (sadly) find that some people accuse you of discrimination by not referring to both genders!

    Re: Our company

    I can still change for "he or she" but since, in any case, "anyone" is preferable I accept the correction.

    I understand that "surf on the site" is a mistake and I should have written: "surf the site".
