    Question "turn around"

    Hi all,

    Please let me know if I can use 'turn around' when asking someone to finish a work.
    eg. - "Can you please turn this work around as soon as possible".

    Regards

    Yes, You use it as mentioned. Turn around means: to carry out all the necessary procedures between receiving an order or task or completing the task
    How long will it take you to turn this work around?
