Nem sempre as soluçoes mais simples contentaram os clientes. Há casos em que , pela complexidade do tema, os clientes exigem maior profundidade no encaminhamento do assunto, até sua conclusão . O vendedor deve estar atento ao fato de que vender não se resume em apresentar o produto. É preciso conhecer o produto e convencer o comprador de que sua venda irá realmente ao encontro de suas necessidades

Not always the simplest solutions satisfied customers. There are cases where due to the complexity of the issue, customers require more depth in the referral of the matter until its conclusion. The seller should be aware of the fact that selling is not just presenting the product. The seller must know the product and how to convince the buyer that the sale will actually serve to meet the buyer's needs.
English to Portuguese: Pilgrimage to Mecca
General field: Other
Detailed field: Religion
Source text - English
Muslims from all over the world, including the United States, travel to Makkah ( Mecca ) (in modern- day Saudi Arabia). Before arriving in the holy city, Muslims enter a state of consecration (dedication) known as ihram, by removing their worldly dothes and donning the humble attire of pilgrims two seamless white sheets for men, and simple white dresses and scarves for women. The white garments are symbolic of human equality and unity before God, since all the pilgrims are dressed similarly. Money and status no longer are a factor for the pilgrims - the equality of each person in the eyes of God becomes paramount
Translation - Portuguese
Muçulmanos de todo o mundo, incluindo os Estados Unidos, a viajam para Makkah (Meca) (hoje localizada na Arábia Saudita). Antes de chegar à cidade santa, muçulmanos entram num estado de consagração (dedicação integral) conhecida como ihram, removendo suas vestimentas mundanas e se vestindo com um humilde traje de peregrino composto de duas abas brancas para os homens e simples vestes brancas e cachecóis para as mulheres. As túnicas brancas são símbolo da igualdade e da unidade humana diante de Deus, uma vez que todos os peregrinos ficam vestidos de forma igual. Dinheiro e posição na sociedade já não são um fator diferencial para os peregrinos - a igualdade de cada pessoa, aos olhos de Deus se torna primordial .
