    Smile which slogan is better?tks.

    I am translating the company's slogan. The source language is Chinese. (you can ignore it). I have several versions:

    1, Connect, Integrate and Flourish
    2. Communicate, .....
    3. Connect, Combine, and Flourish.

    Judging from the sense of the language, which one do you prefer? Thanks!


    PS: Thanks, David. If translated literally, the first word is communicte, the second fuse(here in Chinese we use its metaphor), the third word means grow.


    Thanks again. We are a non-profit association of Industrial Design. Our task is to promote China's Industrial Design in a global level.

    Re: which slogan is better?tks.

    That first word presents a difficulty. Perhaps others can help more than I there. My best shot is

    Contact, Unite, Prosper

    trying to keep the wording in line with the corporate business world. What sort of business/company is this?

    It is preferable that you only use the Edit function to make amendments/corrections to your original post. When reply to a post, use the Post button, so that others interested in your thread can follow the sequence.

    As it stands, your post is followed by two replies...yet new readers don't know what you are replying to!...and have to read my first post, then go back to yours, to see your first reply, and then..............

    So - in simple words, what is the aim of your company on this 'global' level? Communicate with whom, unite with whom, how/who will grow?

    Smile Re: which slogan is better?tks.

    Oh, I just realized that it's better to reply in a new post. Haven't logged in this website for a long time.

    The aim of our association is to provide a platform for companies related to Industrial Design in China to take part in more international events, such as organizing forums, exhibitions.

    Re: which slogan is better?tks.

    How about:

    Connect, Unite, Advance

    or

    Connect, Synergize, Advance

    I prefer connect to communicate, advance/progress to prosper/flourish
    I think it's called a 'motto' rather than slogan.

    Smile Re: which slogan is better?tks.

    Thank you all so much. I chose Connect, Unite, Advance.
    It's more than a discussion of translation to me. I learnt something more about the language through this post.

    Connect is better than communicate. I thought so, too, though I don't know why it is.

    Smile Re: which slogan is better?tks.

    One more thing, would it better to use the -ing form for the three words? It would be printed on the cover of our brosure.
