    proper title

    Hello Everyone,

    Last year due to economy woes, China Central Bank, increased the amount of interest rate difference between saving and loan. Since then almost all banks in China gained huge profits, and the senior administrator are paid incredibly higher as awards. One economic expert makes the claimation in a article titled "the huge amounts of income paid to the executives should be awarded to Mr. Zhou Xiaochuan, President of China Central Bank." as it is the central bank that actually has brought the profitable banking industry. Could you give the passage a precise and accurate title here according to my rough translation?

    Regards

    Sky

    The President of China Central Bank, Mr. Zhou Xiaochuan, ought to be paid as much as other bank presidents.

    The President of China Central Bank, Mr. Zhou Xiaochuan, deserves as much salary as other bank presidents.

    Can I say :" NO AWARD FOR THE EXCUTIVES, BUT FOR MR. ZHOUXIAOCHUAN"? as I feel the title here is most correspond to the original Chinese.

    It doesn't quite seem to reflect what you said in your first post.

    Building on Soup's suggestion, how about:

    China Central Bank President should be rewarded

    OR

    China Central Bank President deserves more

    Re: proper title

    Hi sky753

    Here's how it should read:

    EXECUTIVES ONLY, BUT NO AWARD FOR MR. ZHOUXIAOCHUAN?

    or

    EXECUTIVES AWARDED, NOT MR ZHOUXIAOCHUAN.
