Guangming Daily: "The Belt and Road" heart interlinked language first
How many working languages can an international conference have? Held in Beijing in May 2017 "The Belt and Road International Cooperation Forum's answer is: 18.
At the meeting site, each seat has a list of 18 languages: Chinese, English, French, Russian, Spanish, Kampuchea, Czech, Hungarian, Indonesia, Kazakh, Laos, Mongolian, polish, Serbia, Turkish, Vietnamese, Japanese and other languages. Korean. And so many languages, only "The Belt and Road along the country's 53 official languages of the 1/3.
In 2013, when President Xi Jinping first talked about the economic belt of the Silk Road in Kazakhstan, he raised the "five links" with great foresight, namely, policy communication, road connection, trade unimpeded, currency circulation and popular heart. To achieve the "five links", of course, the need for language interoperability. First, the policy should be expressed in language. It is necessary to negotiate and formulate regional cooperation plans and measures, and make relevant policies, laws, plans and measures known to all. Secondly, the facility Unicom needs more language connectivity. The road of language is not smooth, and other aspects are difficult to smooth. Again, the "five links", appears to be the most popular interlinked "soft", but the "The Belt and Road construction for the fate of the community, to achieve mutual benefits and shared responsibility, the people connected to the more fundamental. "The Belt and Road construction can use English language as a common language, but this common language can only express, not only through things, to look through the heart. It is also necessary to use the local language and national language that people of all nationalities in the region are most willing to use.
Must admit that language interoperability is the basis The Belt and Road interoperability, more connected to the people is a prerequisite. If language is not available, it is difficult to acquire all kinds of information that comes from language. Of course, we can get relevant information through some of the larger languages, such as English, French, Russian and Spanish, but these information will inevitably deviate from the original meaning after third people turn and filter them. It is difficult to get real and accurate information. Important information, such as legal information, economic information, and cultural information, can be disambiguate and even cause great trouble if it can not be obtained directly in the local language.
"The Belt and Road" to establish a common destiny of mankind, it is important to take China "The Belt and Road" initiative "and The Belt and Road along the country's development planning organic docking. "The basic concept of The Belt and Road construction is a win-win situation, in the language of philosophy is to promote equality and mutual benefit. In the translation of various concepts, we should respect the use of the language of various cultures, especially to make more people understand, look at the eyes, and pay attention to the proper use of words. We must strengthen the ability of language communication and use the language of understanding and tolerance so as to build a bridge between people's hearts.
"The Belt and Road construction, needs a large number of common language can also be well versed in local ethnic language professionals. Language is the road of Invisibles. To jointly plan the road, build the road together and use the road together, the road of language must be built first; the smooth trade and currency circulation can not be separated from the language service, and the language needs to be supported. The language of communication, language training, language seems to be a problem, actually we restrict fast or slow in "The Belt and Road this road, go good or go not go far, or not far away.
