    Post Question: represent

    Example.
    Colin: We don't specifically try to communicate to members in different languages. English is still the primary language of BCAA, but we do have a number of sales offices who have salespeople who are multilingual, and we are fully represented in all the different communities around the lower mainland and B.C., and what we've found from our analysis is that we've got equal representation in all communities. It doesn't look like we have better representation in areas where there are only English-speaking people versus other languages. It seems to be a need that everyone has. Everyone drives their vehicle, everyone needs insurance, everyone travels, so there's a need for everyone, basically. The local sales office typically has people who can talk to members in their own language, based on the community that surrounds the sales office.

    Question.
    A word of "represent/representation" has lots of meaning.

    Above sentences, the word is used three times like the following.

    1. we are fully represented in all the different communities around the lower mainland and B.C.

    2. what we've found from our analysis is that we've got equal representation in all communities.

    3. It doesn't look like we have better representation in areas where there are only English-speaking people versus other languages.

    I'd like to know how the word is used in each sentence.

    Re: Question: represent

    I'm not a teacher, but I think "represent" here means "to be present", this is, for a company, to have branches somewhere.


    1. we have branches in all and each one of the different communities around the lower mainland and B.C.

    2. what we've found from our analysis is that we've got equal presence in all communities.

    3. It doesn't look like we have more branches in areas where there are only English-speaking people versus other languages.

    My two cents.

    Re: Question: represent

    In fact, before I asked my question, I thought the meaning on my mind.

    Your words are some different against me. but It seems to right your words.
