    And what, pray, is combined to make a combination product?

    An eye opener. At least two challanegs come to mind. Regulators, that is, governments, tend to apply their own meaning or use to common words, much as soft ware writers do. Thus the translater has to learn a new glossary. Also, the essence of translating is to convert the intent rather than the original words, into another language. This too requires skill.
