    Grammar question

    I'm currently translating a website into english, but am not entirely sure on comma use in this instance. I'm wanting to apply commas as if it was my native language, but sometimes I'm not sure. Maybe you can help me out.

    I'm looking for instances with the word "that" to expand upon a sentence. For example "We are creating a beautiful working environment, that's enriched by...blabla" Is there a comma before "that" or no?

    Thank you! I hope this type of question is allowed.

    No comma.

    And if it's formal, use "that is", not "that's".

    Commas. When in doubt leave it out.

    You can also leave the comma in and eliminated the word "that."

    "We are creating a beautiful working environment, enriched by alcoholic beverages."

    You could also say "We are creating a beautiful working environment, which is enriched by..."

    In this case the comma would not be necessary. The word "which" takes the place of the comma.
