    I wonder what the difference between through and via?
    What the sentence these words used for?
    I.e.:
    - install through JSGME or via?
    - look around via/through  triplex of the turret
    - get in touch via skype

    i think via is just informal buddy... like saying hi vs. hello

    [Edit]:

    e.g.

    if you wrote it (conversation or informal)
    You can install via JSGME.
    if a company wrote it (official for a document or formal)
    Install through JSGME.

    if you wrote it (conversation or informal)
    You can look around via the turret.
    if a company wrote it (official for a document or formal)
    Look around through the turret.

    if you wrote it (conversation or informal)
    You can get in touch with me via Skype.
    if a company wrote it (official for a document or formal)
    Get in touch with us through Skype.

    do you see the difference?

    OK, I see.
    "via" it is for conversation
    "through" it is for the documents
    Thanks for explanation! Sad-:

    Via is not informal, it can be used or interchanged with through. It also carries a more specific meaning in some instances. For example when travelling or going somewhere .It;s more a matter of personal preference. I personally avoid these Latin words and I prefer clear Anglo-Saxon ones as they are part of the original English language but it's personal . So Lockie you can use via or through as you want in your posts.Through is more common though.

    Quote from online that I like:

    Via has a well established usage meaning to go from one geographical location to another by way of a third. That's how the Romans used it. More recently it was reserved for travel contexts and remains useful in this sense, for example a Northern line train (on the London Underground) going to Morden via Bank.
