@Mitch Thanks! What you said is the key information I am missing and it actually answers the question.

@KristinaLopez None of this has anything to do with a CV. From which part of the question did you get that impression? I need to edit that part.

@KristinaLopez no it's not like a signature. I've updated my question trying to be more clear. One such 'address' is replacing I or We in a sentence.

@KristinaLopez Please see my intention of using "address" in the above comment and if it is indeed wrong, I would like to know the right word for it.

@Marthaª By address I mean an expression to call oneself, like "your humble servant". If "address" is not the right word, please correct me. The first translation is a just literal translation. When this sentence is used in Chinese, it's meant to be a modest expression (in front of another company) rather than disparagement or sarcasm. I will try ELL SE. Thanks.

@Fr0zenFyr Not exactly; I am looking for ways in English (words/idioms, special sentence constructs, etc.) to achieve the same function as the humble/boasting address do in Chinese.

@StJohnoftheCross I see. That's also the answer I am looking for.
