I was wondering if there is a specific preference for the
soon position in the following line:
You will receive a message with the activation link soon.
Or if it is better/more common to use:
You will soon receive a message with the activation link.
Is it merely preference or does it have other implications? At first sight I don't really see a form of intonation here that might make the sentence give a different meaning.
My primary language is Dutch, so I might make some mistakes in this field :)
In Dutch we would say:
Je ontvangt zo spoedig mogelijk je activeringslink per email.
But can also say:
Je ontvangt je activeringslink zo spoedig mogelijk per email.
Which in both cases
zo spoedig mogelijk refers to the same principle as the
soon in the English form.
zo spoedig mogelijk means
as soon as possible, whereas
binnenkort might better refer to
in a bit.
