Hi,

In this message,

'I will be taking a vacation week starting April 29th and ending May 3rd.That was reconciled with ATS management'

does the reconciled fit naturally?

I would appreciate if you could proofread the whole message.

Thanks.

I don't think it does. I would have used "agreed", or "arranged".

In proof-reading the whole message, I am mindful that it appears to be in AmE, whereas I speak in BrE. Nevertheless, here goes..

"I will be taking a week's vacation, starting April 29th and ending May 3rd. This has been agreed with ATS management."

Do I understand it correct that April 29th is another (more informal?) form of April, the 29th?

'April 29th', '29th April', 'April 29' and 29 April' are standard and formal ways of writing the date.

'April, the 29th' is non- standard.

We say, "April the 29th" but, as Rover said, we don't write the.

"Reconcile" implies that there was some sort of dispute that needed to be worked out between you and management. I would simply say that ATS management approved.
