Sometimes this is trickier than just a linguistic transfer of meaning, because underlying assumptions in the target language culture might leave people bewildered. We think both "forest" and "trees." A recent example was the campaign to translate videos for Please Be Kind to Cyclists (a TxDOT bicycle safety awareness project) into Spanish. The slogan "Drive Kind Ride Kind" doesn't work in Spanish as a direct translation, because "kind" and "ride" don't have clear equivalents. The Spanish slogan is now "Conductor Amable Ciclista Amable," (Nice Driver Nice Cyclist) turning the grammar of the original on its head to to best capture the feel of the message.
