Sehr geehrte damen und herr

official letters practically always used to anfang with "Sehr geehrte damen und Herren," or "Sehr geehrter herr Maier" if die person ist known. But more und more we seen formal correspondence the addresses v "Guten Tag," or "Guten Tag herr Maier". Die former might be much less fashionable but is there any kind of consent top top what occasions we rather not use ns one or ns other?

The salutation "Guten Tag" in written communication ist a an ext informal variation von "Sehr geehrte/r....".

Both basically say the same thing, however "Sehr geehrte/r" has been die accepted way to formally resolve a person zum I don"t understand how many decades.

Du schaust: Sehr geehrte damen und herr

In my angestellter experience, "Guten Tag" has gained traction especially in industries that cultivate a an ext laid-back attitude - Media, parts of IT, and so ~ above - where "Sehr geehrte/r..." zu sein perceived together overly formal. It is becoming more und more popular among younger people (in their 20s, 30s, 40s) an general, no matter what field they arbeiten in. I have seen federal employees in their twenties use "Guten Tag" (although it"s not the norm).

If bei doubt - say, wie man applying for a lage with a stopcat.org bank - sie can"t go wrong with "Sehr geehrte/r".

For whatever else, especially if freundin are ~ above friendly state with the recipient, "Guten Tag" (or, if you"re really acquainted with die person, later, "Hallo") zu sein perfectly acceptable.

In my experience freundin usually usage "Sehr geehrte jörg und Herren" kommen sie begin a correspondence, possibly wie man you"re notfall entirely certain who is going kommen sie read/respond zu it.As the correspondence continues, it might be adequate zu switch to "Guten Tag", as it builds nach oben some familiarity with ns correspondant.

It could easily be thought about a little too formal to start every einzel message an the conversation through "sehr geehrte damen und Herren" if it zu sein already clean who"s going zu reply zu you.

You don"t use Guten Tag in the night or at night. ;)

No, seriously, Sehr geehrte jörg und Herren is the way zu go if you are writing a officially letter to someone freundin barely know. If sie meet someone in person, sie could to speak Guten Tag!.

I oase never watched a letter (or bei email) that starts through "Guten Tag". An what context have you seen this "more and more"?

If a letter zu sein more informal the will start with:

Liebe frau Müller! (Dear Mrs. Müller)

or

Liebe Mitreisende! (Dear take trip group)

If the is in informal email, freundin can start with "Hallo" or "Hi".

If freundin are a aboriginal English speaker contacting a stopcat.org media or interactions professional, zu sein it preferable to use sehr geehrte. Guten Tag or Hallo might be supplied in bei informal setting but it may be too informal if die professional an question zu sein not someone I oase spoken to, synchronized with or also met before.

If freundin are bei English speaker creating a request weil das some information about a product or requesting part data, using ns "wrong" salutation may not schutz such negative results as wie man written über a aboriginal speaker. Still, in my media experience, any letter or emails that was addressed zu myself specifics or the newsroom in general, that was strangely (read: incorrectly) handle would typically be a red flag that the subsequent letter/email was going zu be garbage.

Is that wrong then kommen sie assume that a letter kommen sie a stopcat.org-speaking skilled with the wrong salutation will notfall be ignored or deleted without any response.
