“There is one way to understand another culture. Living it. Move into it, ask to be tolerated as a guest, learn the language. At some point understanding may come. It will always be wordless. The moment you grasp what is foreign, you will lose the urge to explain it. (Peter Hoeg)

“‘One World, One Dream’ is simple in expression, but profound in meaning. It is of China, and of the world. It conveys the lofty ideal of the people in Beijing as well as in China to share the global community and civilization and to create a bright future hand in hand with the people from the rest of the world.” – http://en.people.cn/90002/94411/94439/6447785.html

People these days are increasingly relying on translation software and that’s fine for simple things like: “How much does it cost?” But, when language gets more complicated than that, we had better either: 1. know that foreign language well ourselves, or have an excellent translator (and/or editor).
