The meaning of "Request" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does  My request was granted. mean?
A: I asked for something and I got it.
Q: What does OK request you to kindly do the needful. mean?
A: そうなのですね…それは正しい英語とは思えませんが、おそらく相手が「OK. I request you to kindly do the necessary.」と言いたかったのではないでしょうか。(私はビジネス日本語に弱いですが、一応「分かりました。(返事を得るのに)必要な手順をよろしくお願いします」という和訳ではどうでしょうか…)ちなみにその文でもかなり不自然(かつ無礼)なので、よりよい英語にすれば「I see. May I request you to kindly do what is necessary?」でいいと思います。

kindlyは依頼の時に結構使う言葉なのです。相手に迷惑をかけたのに、それでも手間を取ってくれるとは、親切な行動ですよね?なので「kindly」を使うのです。個人的に「宜しくお願いします」の「宜しく」に似ていますが、どうでしょうか。

Sometimes we say "send x on to ~" or "forward on to ~". The "on" here indicates the movement of the message. The first message came from you. Then it moved on to her, and on to the next person, and so on. :)
