How do I say "How can I help you?"
I am making a badge for a skit in spanish. I am a jewelry store owner and my badge is supposed to say "How can I help you?"
Would it be... "Cómo puedo ayudar a ustéd?" OR "Cómo puedo ayudarle?" OR "Cómo ayudarle?" OR Something else???
Please answer ASAP. Thanks!!!
I like ¿Cómo puedo ayudarle? because I think a jewelry store owner would use the formal mode of address (as opposed to someone working in a store geared to teens, for example, who might choose to be more informal.)
I think the verb "servir" is more appropriate in this situation than "ayudar".
"¿En qué puedo servirle?" What can I do for you? May I help you?
You can also say:
¿En qué puedo ayudarle? = How can I help you?
Can be used when addressing one person in a formal way.
or ¿En qué puedo ayudarles? = How can I help you?
Can be used addressing a group of people in a formal way
I hope this helps
I agree with Sheily in that "servir" is more common in these cases.
It´s just a personal opinion, but in the case of a badge I would have it say simply "Para servirle."
