    Re: What is the difference between "Will update you" and "Will update to you"

    Welcome to the forum, dharmendra.chauhan.

    Neither is a complete sentence - the verb has no subject. I/we will update you is possible; to you is not.

    Re: What is the difference between "Will update you" and "Will update to you"

    Sorry 5jj, forgot to add subject. I want to ask the difference between these two sentences:

    1. I will update you,
    2. I will update to you.

    #2 is incorrect. I said in my last post that 'to you' was not possible.

    Sorry, guys, but I can't translate the sentence: I will update you. How I need to understand it?
    Sorry for stupid question.
    If I have made any mistakes, please tell me about them. I need to improve my English anyway and I hope you'll help me.

    I strongly agree with 5jj. He is correct, "I will update to you" is not a correct format. So accept " I will update you."

    Sorry for stupid question.
    What do you mean by "I can't translate the sentence 'I will update you' "? Are you trying to translate it into a different language?

    I will update you = I will give you the latest information [about whatever subject you are talking about].
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
