Team and Tim,

Here is the first draft of my translation. I translate the terms based on Hong Kong and used traditional chinese characters. Here is the summary of experience when translating:

1. Terms used in Hong Kong may be different from the terms in elsewhere (PRC, Taiwan, etc.). I only have the knowledge of Hong Kong and PRC (a little bit).
2. When translating the definition (i.e. description), sometimes I don't understand the context. For example, built-up area. I guess may be when the spreadsheet is initially drafted, some discussions have taken place on what words to use. Lacking of that background sometimes makes translation difficult.
3. Some Business Synonyms are not plain English terms. I don't know how to translate.
4. Sometimes we don't know the business concept of the BIE, it may be due to (a) the concept differs in western and chinese addresses, or (b) we don't have enough domain knowledge.

This is my experience so far. Please comment on my translated spreadsheet and we may need to discuss on how to overcome those obstacles. Thanks.

Regards, -Patrick
