    for whom

    This document is important not only for him, but also for his customers for whom such a document is the confirmation
    that his company XXX sells your original spare parts.

    Are there any other ways to say "for whom"?
    If you have any other ideas how to rephrase this sentence, let me know, please.

    Thank you.

    Re: for whom

    Yes. 'Who', 'which', and 'that' can all be used to refer to people.

    Re: for whom

    The above suggestions are OK, Ksenia, but inferior to the original sentence, in my opinion.

    Why did you want to rephrase it?

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
