Would be more than happy to help out, but you folks are not making this easy. No online survey, not Word document to full out, not even a return e-mail address. How do you expect people to actually respond to this ?

can you write your emile here, you konw i make a survy in i don't kown how to use it,mybe i can send a word document

William, of you properly put it online I can include it in one of the newsletters of the Xi'an International Business Forum. But like this it's simply not going to work.

Besides, you might want to let someone double-check the translation and quality of the questions because some of it is downright confusing.
