I prefer " Be strong China!" which I always say to myself.

But now i have a new idea, how about "Cheer up China!"?

GUEST19155 中国加油,有不放弃,发奋,努力的意思。英文应该叫don't give up

GUEST33769 "jia you" mean encouragement and hope

"jia you" translate to "go go go" or "come on!"

GUEST19784 我是中国人,在中国加油其实有很多用法,第一种很简单就是给车或其他交通工具添加燃油或者是为烹饪的食物加油,第二种是体育活动种常用的,意味着努力,加速,坚持不懈,还有一种也就是在这次地震中出现的在这里的意思应该也有坚持不懈的意思,更多的是振作,努力。

I am a Chinese, in China this word has a lot of means, first is a very simple mean ,that is to add oil or fuel for car, the second is commonly used in sports, means that efforts to accelerate , Perseverance, this is also in the earthquake of China. that is also appearing in the meaning here ,that is should have the meaning of Perseverance, is more emerge, efforts.

sorry,my English is very poor

GUEST12883 err...It's really hard to translate "jia you" into Enlgish by one single word or one phrase! Maybe "come on" is the most approximately.

jia you, the original meaning is to fill oil into a gasoline tank, or when something doesn't run well or before cooking.
other meanings,
1) to encourage/surport someone/something when it is depressed.
2) to boost the morale of someone/something when it is being at a game/battle/etc.
3) a good wish/hoping that someone/something do it's better or do more efforts.
