    Smile in some capacity

    ...When and if the announcement to drop Google's China website is made, many wonder whether Google can continue operating in some capacity in China. It does run a research center and advertising operations in Beijing. .....

    Dear all,

    What's the meaning of "in some capacity" here?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    I think it means 'ability' in this case. (Not a teacher) or to make her job easily.

    Bye,

    Re: in some capacity

    I think "to some extent" or "to some degree" mean exactly the same.

    I am not a teacher.
