I am translating a mail from English to Russian and the mail has a word 'Loves' as a part of the signature:

...letter text



(Ben is the sender's name). What my friend mean with this word? Does he say he loves the addressees or does he wish them love?

A bit of clarification: The letter is absolutely informal, it is from the mailing list in a game and is addressed to a group of players. And the the contents of the letter are completely unrelated to love in any form :-)

How would you translate that: "С люовью", "Люблю" or "Любви" or something else?

I was trying to find the answer with Google and Yandex but it seems to be a bit of specific and narrow so I just drowned in tips on how to sign letters.

P.S. Please sorry my poor English

  • Is it 'loves' not 'love'? Looks like a typo.

    Does not look like a proper English to me. "Loves" may be used in a sense similar to "Hugs" and "Kisses".

  • @VaNdal He does write "Loves", not "love" every time. That plural form is is what embarrasses me.

  • @Alexander I don't know if English is his native. Players from all over the world here -- Asia, Europe, America

  • If he's not a native speaker then we have some many options... :)

"С любовью" sounds like the best option.


Будь то "love" или "loves", скорее всего, имеется в виду что-то вроде "целую" или "обнимаю, целую". Тепла примерно столько же, сколько в письмах между родственниками.


It entirely depends on the nature of the letter. There is every chance it is rather informal, so the best translation, in my opinion, would be "люблю тебя" (вас, if addressed to more than one person)
