hello

If I am authorised to sign a letter on someone else's behalf what do I write?

(after my signature and before their name?)

it should be some sort of abbreviation, something like p.s.

can anyone help??

I'm not clear on how to sign..Do I sign my name or do i sign the persons name and my initials after?
pp before their name the your signature after their name

Anonymouspp before their name the your signature after their name
so it would be like this "pp Mr. Big Boss, My Signature"? like that? Could you post a like to an exmple of what it looks like?
I'm not sure about the previous poster... But the accepted manner is as follows:

As Tim said earlier, 'p.p.' stands for 'per pro' - or, in its full glory, 'per procurationem'.

This is Latin and means "on behalf of". Therefore, when using 'p.p.' to sign on someone's behalf, you would end up with -

Yours sincerely,

(Put your signature here)

p.p. Mr Bloggs (Their Surname)

- i.e. this is You, signing on behalf of Mr Bloggs.

Also (and purely for your reference), the accepted space to leave between 'Yours Sincerely' and the sender's title (in this case, Mr Bloggs) - the gap in which you would put your signature - is five empty lines long.

If YOU are Jane Doe, and you are signing for your director because he is out of the office, it is:

JDoe (your signature, not your name)

pp John Smith

Managing Director
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
The answer is exactly as above.

Me: Jonathon Doe
The person I'm signing for: Marjorie Bloggs

Jonathon Doe
p.p.
Marjorie Bloggs
Managing Director, XYZ Company


"Jonathon Doe" is the signature
"p.p." is printed
Marjorie Blogss etc is typed
is this accepted for signing someone's else behalf?

for: my signature

name of someone
No.

This is wrong.

Correct is

p.p Jane Doe.
John Smith

p.p means that you are authorised to sign on behalf of. If you put p.p in front of the name of the person you are signing for, it means HE is authorised to sign on behalf of.. Which is not what you're trying to say is it?
