    Sending an attachment

    Hello teachers,

    Please help me correct the following sentence I usually use in my emails (i.e. structure, grammar, etc..):

    Please find attached both the Japanese and Chinese translations on "The Princess And The Pea" for your further actions, please.


    And, is the use of preposition "on" above correct? Should I use "for" or other similar/related words?

    Regards

    Thank you very much. Despite the work pieces I sent via emails, and email language need not be too formal, I need to observe the language of my email recipient who is a native (English) speaker.

    Delete the final please. You don't need to start and end with it.

    "and the" should not be capitalized: The Princess and the Pea. (The first "The" is capitalized because it's the first word.)
    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.
