钱总经理用英语怎么说?对他说“钱总,您好”这是不是不礼貌?我以为,应该说钱总先生。叫他钱总也可吗以?

 

马大为: 请问,您是钱总经理吗?
钱经理: 是的。您是马大为先生吧?
马大为: 我是马大为。钱总,您好。上个月我来贵公司跟张经理谈过一次,后来您的秘书给我打电话,让我今天来公司跟您谈一谈。

    可以直接叫钱总

    合萍:我认为在中文口语中说“钱总,您好”是非常有礼貌的表达,不需要说钱总先生或者钱总经理,显得啰嗦。在英文中直接说Mr.Qian 就可以,个人的看法请参考。

    Firstly, '钱总'='钱总经理', that's no problem.
    Secondly, in terms of the listener's feeling, '钱总' souds like a native and will never be impolite,but '钱总经理' sounds like a foreigner or one whose head runs slowly.
    Finely, '钱总经理' maybe just be used in the case that u meet '钱' for the first time,or when u r in a meeting or something,u need to introduce '钱' to ur guests or others who don't know "钱", or used in cases u wanna emphasize the position of "总经理".

    In this dialog,'马' used '钱总经理' at he beginning and soon after he changed '钱总经理' into '钱总'.it sounds very polite at the beginning because the whole name of the position of '钱' has been emphasized. ) and after very natural and native-like.(because nowadays we're Chinese almost all using '*总')

    '钱总经理'= gerneral manager.
    As for '钱总先生', sounds wired and we won't use it.
