Saying "How are you?" or "How's it going?" is well documented in any German 101 class. But I'm curious how one does this in the context of business. I note that most of my conversations with coworkers I don't commonly associate with usually adhere to the following pattern:
Hi -> How are you? -> How are your projects?
In literaly English to German, one would say:
Wie sind Ihre Projekte?
But I'm curious how one could do this and sound more native? Further, I work in software. We tend to be informal, even in the German world. Is there a way to ask this colloquially and sound more authentic?
