I am working with company in Germany. I requested some documents, and they replied that they will send it 'next days'. What is meaning of 'next days'? I confused because of 'days'. Does it meaning within following next few days? or Tomorrow?

APthree's answer is correct. In German, it's "in den nächsten Tagen." It sounds like somebody's English wasn't too good, and they translated poorly. The page I have cited also wondered how many days it meant, exactly. The answer was 2-4 days.

  • Thank you Wordster. Now I am clear with meaning. I will wait 2-4 days more :)

I believe that what they said was a typo, because there is no way the sentence you said could be correct with “next” beside “days”. Assuming the sentence was “We will send it next days”, correct options include:

  • We will send it in the next few days.
  • We will have sent it within the next few days.
  • We will send it in the next day.

Hope this helps!

  • Thank you so much APthree. I haven't got any feed back yet, so it might be next few days:) It also help me a lot to improve my writing!
