Write a letter in Spanish
Writing the first letter in Spanish, for example to a friend or even in a formal or business context, is certainly not easy for many. In terms of structure, a letter in Spanish hardly differs from a German letter. In addition, some typical formulations and idioms will help.
The formal letter structure of a Spanish letter
The letter begins with your own address. This is at the top of the letterhead or on the right-hand side. The recipient's address follows on the left-hand side below. The date is on the right. Often the place is also added. Before the letter begins with the salutation, it is often necessary to first read a subject, which can be written in bold. The salutation is followed by the actual text and finally the greeting and your own signature. So everything is like in German. The main part should be divided into paragraphs (numbered if necessary), with the reason for the letter (corresponds to the subject) stated right at the beginning.
The salutation - this is how you start a Spanish letter
Correct addressing in Spanish depends on who the letter is sent to and the reason for the letter. A distinction must be made here between informal (private letters) and formal letters, for example a business or official letter. If you are writing a letter to a Spanish friend, it can begin with the salutation “Querido / -a”, “¡Hola” or “Buenos Días”. “Buenos Días, Señor / Señora” can also be the beginning of a formal letter if you know the contact person.
When writing a formal letter in Spanish, you should start with:
Estimado Señor / Estimada Señora = Dear Sir / Dear Ms.
Muy apreciadoa señor / Muy apreciada señora = Dear Sir / Dear Ms.
Señora becomes with Sra. or Sras. abbreviated in the plural. The common abbreviation for Señor is Sr. or Sres. in plural. Two surnames are common in Spain. These are the first surname of the father and the first surname of the mother. These are written without a hyphen, but often with a y between them, e.g. B. Velasquez y Fernandez. The first surname is usually used in letters.
Closing letter - this is how you end a Spanish letter
The same applies to the end. There are several options here in Spanish. A private letter can end with greetings such as:
Muchos Saludos = Many greetings
Mis mejores deseos = All the best
Cuídate / Cuídense = Take care / Do it well
Polite greetings are:
Sinceramente = Respectfully
Afectuosamente = Sincerely / Sincerely
Atentaments = Sincerely
Le saluda atentamente = Sincerely yours
Queda de usted / ustedes = I remain with best regards
Cordialmente = With best regards
Saludos = greetings
