David, Hi!

<<<snip>>> "Do you translate the words or translate
the meaning?" The two are not necessarily the same, as some other posts on
this topic have pointed out.

[ Exactly. My attitude is this for biz documents. If the doc is aimed for
English speaking markets then forget about meanings, words or translations.
Just produce a damn good document in English whatever it takes!

The same rule applies for any other language.


(Am I allowed to use "damn"?)
