I have been a Tokyo resident for 6 years; I've studied Japanese for 10.

My company Long Weekend LLC develops Awesome mobile software, including Japanese Flash, the best iOS Japanese vocabulary study tool out there. We also develop Rikai Browser, which allows you to translate Japanese words on web pages in realtime on iOS (may be very good for reading this site!).

comment At work, when is it not ok to finish an email with どうぞよろしくお願いします?
Troyen - what's the email about? I also use ご返信をお待ちしております when I'm merely expecting a response, not necessarily actual work.

comment IT system renewal: Can I say 更新 for “renewal”?
yes, you are most certainly right in that regard. When I said "related to processes", I meant within the context of an IT department :)

comment お金と「ちょうど」の使い方 (usage of “chōdo”)
My girlfriend just confirmed that YOU's answer is not only correct, but that the person who says "chodo" in the case of taking more than the total is incorrect.

comment IT system renewal: Can I say 更新 for “renewal”?
更新 is definitely the best word. 改善 usually also involves processes, so if you're changing a business process AND the piece of software running it, then maybe kaizen is better. But I like 更新
