I hope we can have better cooperation in the future.

I hope we can have better cooperation in the future.這句話傳達的意思，並不是合作愉快，而是「希望下一次合作比這次好」，言下之意，這次合作不太好。假如你不想讓人錯解意思，這樣寫就不恰當，要表達希望和對方合作的誠意，怎麼說好？

## 1、Work with/team up with

（Ｘ）I hope we can have better cooperation in the future.
（Ｏ）I look forward to working with you again.

「合作」最簡單的講法是work together，或者還有一個實用的片語也有合作的意思，是team up with。

He didn't want to team up with anybody. 他不想與任何人合作。

## 2、Cooperate / Collaborate

Collaborate裡藏著一個labor，這是「艱苦地幹活、勞力」的意思。很多人一起合作，共同創造或實現同一個目標，就叫collaborate。Collaborate會給人「不分彼此、積極、主動參與」的印象。

We can work in collaboration to make this conference a success.

Cooperate藏著另一個字operate，「操作、運作」的意思，它比較抽象，經常是更長遠的一種關係，但這種合作是「單純的合作，配合對方」，沒有 collaboration 那種「不分彼此的合作」的意思。

The two companies have cooperated in joint ventures for the past several years.

The prime minister's visit further promoted the cooperation between the two countries.

Cooperate和collaborate有時可以互通，但如果有「配合」這層涵意，就只能用cooperate/cooperation。

（X）Thank you for your collaboration!
（Ｏ）Thank you for your cooperation!

（X）We ask for your full collaboration during the investigation.
（Ｏ）We ask for your full cooperation during the investigation.
