    Documents in order / valid

    Hi,

    Is there a difference between: "I need to get the documents valid by Friday / I need to get the documents in order by Friday"

    Thanks

    Re: Documents in order / valid

    You cannot "get a document valid." You can get your documents in order, however.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Documents in order / valid

    You can get your documents validated, if that's necessary for some legal reason. That's not necessarily the same as getting them in order though.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
