  1. Part of the reason your application to attend the opening of trial may have run into some problems is that the Chinese version printed here is half incomprehensible. The grammar is all wrong and major concepts indicating what your intent is are missing. Do you have a better translator? As any Canadian lawyer will tell you, a well drafted pleading, brief, motion, or ANY filing can get you a long way with a court.

    • Dear Angus, you are absolutely right, but I had a limited window of time, and my translator for the time was not available. I took a risk, and went with it. I think they would have called had it been a major factor, or just sort of figured it out, but you are right, the letter was horribly written. In fact, in the end it didn’t matter, as I was let in. Folks who had also applied with grammatically perfect letters were either denied flat out, or never even heard back. Cheers.
