Thanking and apologizing in several forms is essential in a Japanese working environment. I currently have the following list that I have picked up from mails amongst my Japanese coworkers but I'm curious what could be other examples to do this...

  • Thanks for pointing out my mistakes.




  • Thanks for the feedback!

    添削ありがとうございます. とても助かります.

    有難うごいざいました must be a typo for 有難うございました, which is the kanji notation for ありがとうございました. Using kanji here is a little old-fashioned. – Tsuyoshi Ito Jun 3 '11 at 11:43

    Could we get some romaji for these for us learners please? We need to thank people too (-: – hippietrail Jun 4 '11 at 9:19

I would also use "ご指摘、ありがとうございます。"

指摘 has meaning pointing out, and 指導 is more like guidance.


You could also say 「ありがとう。勉強になりました」, which works out to something like "Thanks for teaching me"
