translate vs translated "Please have the attached translate into French." Is it grammatically correct? Shouldn't we use translated instead of translate? Thank you for your kind help.

Yes, you are correct Mero. I think that someone has got confused with the verbs following have sth done as 'attached' which can be a verb or a reference (Here it is a reference.) Hope this helps.

Yes you are correct - it should be 'translated'.

Translated is correct.

You are right. It should be 'translated.' The construction is [have] + [object] + [past participle], meaning to arrange for something to be done.
