Chinese to English: Demand of High-grade glassware using high-purity quartz sand General field: Tech/Engineering Detailed field: Mining & Minerals / Gems
Source text - Chinese （1） 酒店业是高档玻璃器皿的主要市场
Translation - English (1) Hotel industry - Main market of High-end glassware
Since early 1980, the scale of China's hotel industry has increased by leaps and bounds. The increase in demand accelerates the growth of hotel supply, and its growth momentum has been meteoric in recent years. According to statistics of China Hotel & Tourism Association, as of end 2014, there were 12037 star-rated hotels in the country, of which 745 were five-star hotels.
With the continuous development of the tourism industry and the success in organizing various large-scale conferences and competing events in China, it created a robust pull factor to the development of the hotel industry. Currently, China has more than 10 international hotel management groups in its hotel industry, and dozens of world-class hotel brands competing on equal ground. China's star-rated hotels have 2 million rooms, and are expected to increase to 5 million rooms within 5 to 7 years. China's hotel market is expected to surpass the US in 5 to 10 years.
The rapid development of the hotel industry directly drives the fast growing hotel supplies industry, like catering and dining tableware in order to meet consumer needs, to elevate hotel’s grading and quality of its supplies industry, outward appearance etc. The required standards are also higher than ordinary household items, exuding an atmosphere of exquisiteness and tastefulness everywhere. High-grade glassware has won a place in the market for its elegant and durable features. Based on yearly increment of 1000 new star-rated hotels, each hotel equipped with 1000 meal sets, wine sets, and additional glassware consumables. Based on an annual attrition rate of 10%, the demand for high-end glassware will be a vast market every year.
Chinese to English: Silicon micro-powder General field: Tech/Engineering Detailed field: Materials (Plastics, Ceramics, etc.)
Source text - Chinese 硅微粉还是生产多晶硅的重要原料。硅微粉用无水氯化氢（HCl）与之反应在一个流化床反应器中，生成三氯氢硅（SiHCl3），SiHCl3 进一步提纯后在氢气中还原沉积成多晶硅。而多晶硅则是光伏产业太阳能电池的主要原材料。近年来，全球能源的持续紧张，使大力发展太阳能成为了世界各国能源战略的重点，随着光伏产业的风起云涌，太阳能电池原材料多晶硅价格暴涨，又促使硅微粉的市场需求迅猛增长，硅微粉呈现出供不应求的局面，更使硅资源拥有者尽享惊人的暴利。
Translation - English Silicon micro-powder is also a crucial raw material for the production of polysilicon. Silicon micro-powder reacts with anhydrous hydrogen chloride (HCl) in a fluidized bed reactor to produce trichlorosilane (SiHCl3), which is further purified in hydrogen to reduce it to polysilicon deposits. Polysilicon is the main raw material for solar battery in the photovoltaic industry. In recent years, the continuous shortage of global energy supply has vigorously propelled countries worldwide to focus and strategize the development of solar energy. The erratic environment of the photovoltaic industry caused the price of polysilicon, solar cell raw material, skyrocketed. This, in turn, prompted the market demand for silicon micro-powder to swell quickly, leading silicon micro-powders into short supply situation. This brought amazing profits to those owning silicon resources.
Chinese to English: Lady Scarlet’s Fight against Necropolis Isotope Syndrome General field: Art/Literary Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Translation - English "I really hope your speculation is wrong.": Sighed Xiao Qi.
"Why don’t you try?" replied Chu Li with a smile: "Are they back?"
"Shouldn’t our dear prince feast over it? Let's join the fun."
"... Yeah." Nodding slowly, Xiao Qi sighed: "Can you find this Chiang Kai-shek if there is no more clue?"
Smiling bitterly, Chu Li replied: "That’ll be troublesome my dear, got to check every bits and pieces, ...it all depends on Lady Scarlet’s (the second eldest lady) luck!"
Xiao Qi sighed softly: "My second eldest sister’ life is but hardship."
"Not to worry and discourage my dear, we may be able to find it back." Chu Li comforted.
Chu Li also felt that Lady Scarlet’s fate was deplorable.
Born in a rich and distinguished family, unrivalled beauty, with no exaggeration proclaiming it heavenly and earthly beauty at its best. However, she did not have a healthy body, and therefore could not taste the sweetness of a wealthy life. Her life is more painful than those reincarnated in the average family.
It wasn’t easy to have finally found the Longevity Grass which was proven to restore health. However, we were robbed in an accident on our journey back. It’s purely bad luck.
But she knew that the Longevity Grass alone couldn’t cure Lady Scarlet. If it was congenital, it could be cured by taking Longevity Grass alone. Unfortunately, she was born with Necropolis Isotope Syndrome as well. Though magical, the Longevity Grass could not improve the health as long as the Necropolis Isotope Syndrome was still unlocked.
Regardless of its usefulness to Lady Scarlet, the Longevity Grass had been a legendary herb which could prolong the life expectancy by sixty years, and it’s worth was beyond imagination. It must be seized back from the robber’s hands. Its medicinal potency remained even with the presence of Necropolis Isotope Syndrome. Once the Necropolis Isotope Syndrome was unlocked, one’s lifespan could be extended by 60 years. So Lady Scarlet must consume it no matter how her body reacted to it.
Xiao Qi said: "Get ready, I will bring you to comb the mansion tonight. No stone will be left unturned. Comb it again when you have time later."
"Yes." Chu Li replied. Xiao Qi got up and left, followed closely by Su Ru.

Translation - English After Mr Shen (a pseudonym) lost his job, the family’s burdens and responsibilities fell on his wife, who managed to work as a cleaner in a day-care centre across their house. In no time the low wages of RM10 per day landed the family of four into deep financial distress.
Mr Shen’s numerous attempts to find a job were futile and the family was living in real hardship with uncertainty over the next meal. Their 9 year-old daughter has not received any education at all. Through a Christmas party, 7979 volunteers were able to come into contact with Mr Shen’s wife and her two children. Since then, Mrs Shen brought her children to attend Sunday School at the Church on a regular basis.
Because of their four months’ overdued rental, the landlord ordered them to move. Left with no option, Mrs Shen turned to 7979 organization's volunteers for help. They were allowed to continue staying there after the Church solved their financial problem using the disaster relief fund.
Thanks be to God, Mr Shen had found a job, and Mrs Shen continued to come to the church to worship with the kids. Although not conversant in Mandarin, Mrs Shen could feel the love of the brothers and sisters, and she was indeed thankful to God for what the Church had contributed to her family.
