    we can vs can we

    Question sentence order:
    I find this written soemwhere:
    How we can help you?
    I think we have to say:
    How can we help you? right!
    I always have problems with this kind of order!
    Thanks.

    Are you sure there was a question mark at the end? If not, and depending where you saw it, it could be grammatical.

    Thanks.
    I agree with both posters. Note that, How we can help you can be short for e.g.,

      • This is how we can help you.
      • Here's how we can help you.
      • If you want to know what we can do for you, here's how we can help you.
