How can I translate the phrase "Es un placer haber sido de utilidad" into English? What ways sound most natural?

"It's a pleasure to have been useful" sounds a little weird for me.

  • I'd say "pleased to be useful" or something similar.

A good natural sounding translation, that still keeps close to the original diction and wording, would probably be:

It's been a pleasure to be of assistance.

Other possibilities might include:

  • I'm glad I could help.
  • I'm more than happy to have lent a hand.

On top of this, in formal situations, it also very common so say No, the pleasure is (all) mine.

Example:

Mary: Thank you for helping me find my keys, sir.

John: No, the pleasure is all mine.
