There are many languages in the world that people use to communicate together. There are some people think there are some languages better than others but I think it should be the more languages a person knows how to use them is the better if he uses them by communicating with others, reading and writing.
Books and others readable things could have many important information that any person could use is he knew about it. I think the most important thing a person gets the idea of the paragraph or book is more important than if he read the book in its original language or translated in other language. Of corse if a person could read the original book is better but if he could not for any reason he could take the translated book of the same thing. It is right there are may some information from the book might get lost or not translated but at least a person gets some information about that subject.
I think languages should be used to communicate with others and gather information that has value for a person regardless what language it comes in, Translated or notsuch as in english or arabic.
