THERE ARE STILL SOME PEOPLE WHO LIVE ON AOTHER PLANET THAN EARTH

The following excerpt is from an article written  By Yuwen Wu

Quote:
The idea would be for all foreign words to have proper Chinese translations: experts would be able to submit their translations for public consultation and trial use before they became official. People would even vote for their favourite translations.

There has been a sharp reaction on Chinese social media. Some have posted long-winded Chinese passages to show how inconvenient it would be to dispense with the English usage.

Others have questioned the point in learning foreign languages if they are not put to good use.

There has even been a suggestion that the title of Chinese state television, CCTV, should be banned. It is, after all, an English abbreviation.
End Quote

Of course another way to do this is to mandate all communications with in the borders of CN (yes-pun intended) be translated verbatim into Chinese Simple--this way all LauWei's will be forced to learn Chinese Simple to read any news, road signs. hotel markings, airplane carriers, license plates to name a few.
