Ask for me

I expect a visitor tomorrow. He will come to our factory.
How do I say "Mañana pregunta por mí en la puerta principal/ de entrada"?
Tomorrow please ask for me in the entrance door?

I'm saying he must go to the security person in the main door and ask to call for me.

Thanks in advance

I didn't respond because I thought you wanted the Spanish, which I thought was correct. Too early in the morning for me.

Somehow I assumed you were living in Spain.

Yes, you can say that, but I'm old-fashioned enough to insist on Spanish.

Your details on screen give language: Spanish (Spain). With no justification whatever, I kind of assumed that was where you lived. Perhaps the blatantly female username adds to my perplexity.

I'm saying he must go to the security guard at the main door, and ask for me.

Thanks in advance

Your translation is good, but my correction makes the English sound more
natural.

A propósito: ¿se puede decir me pides en lugar de preguntas por mi?

I do live in Spain and I speak Spanish.
Wich female username? sosia? You (perikles) are saying I have a female name?


Thanks poli for your advice.
In Spain "pides" it's not so usual as in other countries.
Saludos

The alternative given by Poli was "me pides".

Hello Sosia.

This is my near attempt about your question in order to follow the rules I will translate everything you said.

Please tomorrow to ask for me in the entrance of the factory, literally form this is the nature translation.

Sincerely yours.
