Please could you tell me which preposition should be used in the following phrase:
your request … granting the permission
I’d say definitely ‘request for granting permission’. I’m not sure about ‘the permission’ since it really depends on the context.
Thank you, Torsten! The permission relates to the copyright here.
I see. By the way, are you aware of a translation tool called DeepL?
Yes, I use it sometimes. To my mind, it translates very well from German into Russian and vice versa.
Granting ‘the’ permission indicates that you have already referred to what you have asked to be allowed to do. Otherwise you would have to mention by name what you have asked for.
Thanks for the comment. I’ll draw attention to the definite article.
