Please find attached the file…の違和感


英文メールで未だに馴染めない表現が、”Please find attached the file.”ですね。

「添付ファイルを確認してください。」ですがどうしても”Please find the file attached”としてしまいたくなりますし、そもそもfindってなんかしっくりこない笑


Please Find Attached: Do You Need to Notify Your Audience?

When I was new to the job market and mailing out resumes (although I’m dating myself, I’ll admit that this was well before the days of email), I sent my carefully crafted cover letters with a note that read: Enclosed please find my resume. One such mailing resulted in an interview.


It’s easy to avoid this phrase. Just use direct language and drop the business lingo. Here are a few alternatives:

  • I’ve attached [item].
  • Please have a look at the attached [item].
  • The [item] you asked for is attached.
  • Please refer to the attached [item] for more details.
  • The attached [item] includes . . .
