Lost in Translation

I'm always fond of watching Asian drama and other foreign films.  I've always wondered if I'm missing something out.  Have you tried watching TV and a person will say something long in a foreign language and then the interpreter will say it in a short and quick sentence?

We are in a generation where globalization is bringing the world together.  But, I think we cannot deny that they are still language barriers that are preventing us from fully understanding each other.  I've always wondered how about the business transactions that are taking place.  I bet a simple misunderstanding would cause them a lot of money.  Then, I came across London Translation.  Apparently, there are reliable translating services we can avail for businesses too.
