    我需要給你回推 (延遲) 這些到期日.

    In English there are 3 common words have the meaning of "延遲" :

    (1)push back

    (2)postpone

    (3)delay

    Even though in Chinese they might be the same, but in English they are not interchangeable. For examples:

    If something will be pushed back in time by a few hours, it's delayed.

    Weather can delay the departure of a plane.

    When something is pushed back to a specific date, days or even weeks later, it's postponed.

    I-Phone5 might be postponed because one of key technologies cannot be overcome.

    On the other hand, something like a product that is supposed to be released can be "delayed" (not postponed) for months.
