I'm not a native English speaker so I need your help on this one. When talking about a company, which one is correct:

1)Why to choose Google 2)Why choose Google?

For a non native speaker...why to choose sounds so strange but I've seen it written on a technology website.

Thanks in advance!

  • Both are correct and identical; there is ellipsis at work in the second.

  • I agree that the first sounds very strange. From what I gather the first is strictly "This is why you should choose A" statement and second can be either that or "why did you choose A?" question

1 Answer 1


natively speaking, i think -

1)Why to choose Google - is a statement and the reader assumes you already know the answer

2)Why choose Google - is a question

And i agree with @Raestloz, try restructuring (with the risk of lengthening) (1) to "Why you should choose Google"

  • How about Why choosing Google?
