遵命

It's said from a person of lesser position to a person of higher position, ie from soldier to general.

What would be a more "casual" way of translating it into English other than "As you wish", because "as you wish" sounds like something that is said to royalty and whatnot, rather than a soldier to general (as an example).

Well, there are plenty of "casual" translations.

In a military setting,

  • "Yes, Sir."
  • "Roger that."
  • "Copy that."
  • "Affirmative."

*Note that the later three have the same implication as that of 遵命 but is more accurately translated to 收到

In a even less serious setting,

  • "Will do."
  • "Sure."

I will edit when I have thought of more.

"at your command"

(ignore: 30 characters patch)

In an everyday context could be something like

"I'm on it"

"Right away"

Or perhaps in a more authoritative context an example could include

"At your service"
