RE: need to correct my errors

Quote (SFT)

I was having an interview with a company that extrudes some profiles of aluminum and was going to improve the work by doing the reverse engineering on the past products using a FEM software to make other products
This sentence is a run-on. That is, it seems to properly be at least two different sentences.

Probably "I was having" should be "I had". This leads to "I had an interview with a company that makes aluminum extrusions."

and was going to improve the work by doing the reverse engineering on the past products using a FEM software to make other products

"was going to" suggests that in the past you wanted to do something, but never did. Do you mean "I want to"? "I am going to"?

"I am going to" is in the future. I guess this might be your meaning.

"engineering on the past products using a FEM software to make other products" Not clear if you want to use FEM to MAKE other products, or use FEM software that is used in the design of other projects.

"by doing the reverse engineering on the past products" This the job you interviewed for? You are going to do this after the interview for fun? Why? What need does an extrusion company have for reverse engineering their own product? They have the original engineering information.

As you can see, from your first sentence I am reasonably sure that you had an interview with an extrusion company. Right?

Beyond that I can't even make a guess that seems reasonable.

Let's get this first sentence fixed.

RE: need to correct my errors

(OP)
You are right. I use too many commas in the my sentences.

RE: need to correct my errors

Very confusing 2 threads, am I right in saying that the first thread has now been corrected and this second thread is now obsolete.

It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. (Sherlock Holmes - A Scandal in Bohemia.)

RE: need to correct my errors

(OP)
I have corrected it now, is it now more comprehensible?
