I used the phrase "in addition to the above" in the following manner:
We have lorems and ipsums, because the foo needs a bar every now and then. There are also dolers, sits, and amets, which we now and then use.
In addition to the above, we have...
Someone reviewing this text suggested it should be just:
In addition, we have...
Now I'm unsure whether the "to the above" part is an artifact of translating the original Dutch phrase too literally, or just fine in English.
Any advice on using "in addition" and "in addition to the above" properly would be appreciated.
