Can somebody please tell me an equivalent word to say "recap" in Japanese ? I want to express the following in Japanese:

Let me recap the results we discussed in the last presentation

If necessary, the 'last presentation' is an event that took place in past. How do I say this in Japanese ?

I looked it up in weblio translator site which showed 要約 which I don't feel as appropriate for this situation.

I found the following answer when I searched recap in this site: Meaning of 様子を交える

I dont think 総括 is used to mean recap. Native Japanese mostly use it to mean "generalize" .

Please help.

  • why do you think 要約 is not appropriate? Going by Eijiro it seems fitting to me. – Igor Skochinsky Apr 19 '17 at 7:48

    要約 is not too bad, but it tends to refer to something you read before (or without) reading the main content. – naruto Apr 19 '17 at 12:31

The phrases I would recommend are:

・(簡単{かんたん}に)要点{ようてん}をおさらいする

・(簡単に)要点をまとめる

・ 概要{がいよう}を繰{く}り返{かえ}す

If you are speaking instead of writing, I would especially recommend the first two.
