Question about English (US)

Is it okay and normal to ask someone who is not your friend "can you" without adding "please"?

I'm working as a part-time tutor, and a student who is Ameican texted me "Can you translate what I just said to Japanese?" Since I learned "can you.." sound rude, I'm confused.
