    mark up

    Hi everybody,

    The following is an email I got:
    " As discussed please find attached a copy of the agreement in portuguese an english. View the version' final, not final showing mark up."
    What does the person who sent me this email mean by version' final and 'not final showing mark up?
    Is the version' final the latest version or the end of the version?
    I am really confused.
    I need your help.
    Thank you very much

    Re: mark up

    I don't like the sound of 'agreement'. If you, and most other native speakers such as myself, are just as confused, don't pick up any pen and sign!
    Don't hesitate - in a business situation, and therefore one that may have a legally-binding outcome that renders you culpable with the sole defence of 'ignorance' - in contacting the person and requesting clarification.


    ** for anyone interested, why the use of the gerunds, and not, "Don't hesitate -.....- to contact.....and to request..."

    Hi David,

    Couldn't you understand what he wrote?
    Is that wrong?
    Thank you

    That's what I'm saying - I don't understand what he means!
