Dealing with the Obvious and the Surprises
“Cha-bu-duo” is one of the most common misunderstandings between Chinese and Westerners. For many Chinese, “cha-bu-duo” means a pretty much perfect result, while Westerners might see it differently. Conceptually translated it means: only a little bit is missing. But while something “missing” may be acceptable to one group of professionals, it may be devastating to others. On the other hand, what may be considered a great event or clever design in your home country will not necessarily produce the same result in China.
