Empowerment[edit]

Tonync: As I understand it,empowerment is a very general and conceptual term; providing knowledge itself is already a kind of empowerment. The current translation 「...並給予他們權力,在《自由使用許可協議》的框架下收集並發展富教育意義的內容」is correct, but loses the connotation.Hillgentleman | |2007年04月05日( Thu ), 22:46:33

The former translation was "...並賦權予世界各地人士", and this was dropped in favour of the current translation after a private discussion with Yuyu because of the possible connotations of 賦. I understand your concern, but I would suggest not abandoning the term "empower" in the translation, as I believe this document is after all a text that may have legal connotations, and should be adhered to as much as possible. -- tonync (talk) (講) 16:37, 6 April 2007 (UTC)
    • The Japanese version translated 'empowerment' as 参加を促す (sanka o unagasu, '促進參與' in Chinese). -- tonync (talk) (講) 14:40, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Engage[edit]

On the other hand, anybody have better suggestions for "engage"? We currently have 接觸 (approach), dropping the former 吸引 (entice). -- tonync (talk) (講) 16:37, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

    • The Japanese version translated 'engage' as 力づける (chikarazukeru, similar to '鼓勵' in Chinese). Can we use 鼓勵 in this case? -- tonync (talk) (講) 14:40, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

豁免原則方針=合理使用? 是不是可以备注一下? ---[dnwk|http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Dnwk]
