Is it a proper way to use "isolate" in the sentences below? I wanted to use it to express considering something separately.
Are they awkarwd to native ears? Could you please give me a possible corection?Thanks a lot.
Eg:1. We concerned less on the other aspects except cost, we had to isolate this issue and tried to find a effective way to reduce the cost to meet our budget.
2. We should not be deceived by the surface; although almost all the negotiation have been going well, the detail of co-work supplier has been being vague. We have to isolate it to make a further discussion in the future negotiation.
Thanks a lot for clearing my confusion.
I tried to creat complicated sentences and include more information in them so that I could practice English more. Thanks for spending your time in correcting mistakes. I have been mistaking the usage of "concern". Even though I always checked them in the google translation and the results were usually acceptable, I did not know how to properly use this word.
Regarding the underline parts in the second sentence, they should be detail information for co-working supplier has been being vague.
If you can explain the terms "detail information" and "co-working supplier" we might be able to help further.
Please excuse my poor English.
I used "detail information" to express "a comprehensive information/material on sth. Or a fully introduction on sth. Or an elaboration for sth detail."
I used "Co-working supplier" to express "a supplier who is going to work with you in doing sth. , or will assist you to finish sth."
In the second sentence, I wanted to express that "we knew little about the third part supplier who would probably work with us. And it would remain vague if we did not individually clear it up in the future negotiation." (An assumption background: we negotiated with B company on a new project and we needed a supplier to assist us to finish part of our project. Therefore, B company recommended a supplier to work with us, but we know little about this company and we want to know whether this company is qualified or there was some risk)
I used the tense of present perfect continuous ("has been being") to emphasize that it was likely to be continuing.
