Re: Means Business.net

Welcome. This seems a more traditional form of saying "business entity". Maybe more common in Canton/Taiwan?

Re: Means Business.net

I do not think there's actually a single word for "business" in Chinese.

Business is a wide term, encampassing many meanings, e.g. a business entity (公司 or 生意 or 商行 or 企业 - Small Business (小型企业), the subject of doing business (生意/创业), the commerce 商业, the commercial word, 商场, and more - i can't recollect on the spot.

E.g.

Small Business: 小型企业.
Operating/Doing Business: 做生意, 创业.
Business World: 商场.
Business Management: 企业经营/管理
Business School: 商业学院
Business Owner: 企业家

One can say that Chinese language is actually more "specific", there are many words to describing the multiple meanings of each English word, hence it is more complex than English.

Re: Means Business.net

Agree.
生意 is the closest one to Business, but perhaps 商业 (commerce) is more valuable. Just my personal view.
