Would you be so kind as to

My question about this is, do you have to add please?

So, ‘Would you be so kind as to translate this for me, please?’ Is ‘please’ redundant or not?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, Marc, it is superfluous as well.
The terms ‘would’ and ‘kind’ make the sentence very polite already. The addition of ‘please’ is too servile and redundant!
