I was wondering if you can help me out with something.
I've been struggling to figure out whether the word Power (meaning of strength), as it is in english, is known/understood around the world.
Do the majority of people in your countries know what power mean in their own language?
Any helps would be greatly appreciated.
It comes from the French, pouvoir.... but are you talking about the physical quantity, meaning the rate at which energy is transferred, in kW? If so, I'm sure it means the same thing all round the world.
