SAY HELLO FOR ME / GIVE MY BEST (WISHES)
〜によろしく伝える

Explanation

  • If you tell someone to say hello for me or to give my best or give my best wishes to a person who is not present, you want them to give that person your greetings.

    What typically happens is that, the next time they communicate with that person, they will tell the person that you say hello or you send your best wishes (= you hope the person is well, will have good luck, etc.).
  • 誰かに、say hello for me あるいは、give my best (to a person)give my best wishes (to a person) などと言うと、その場にいない人に挨拶を伝えてほしい、という意味になります。

    一般的には、あなたのメッセージを受けた相手がその人物に会ったときに、あなたがよろしく言っていたと伝えてくれることになります。この場合、say hello や、send someone's best wishes(その人の健康や幸運を願っている)という表現を使います。
