"The PMs speak as if they are speaking directly to each other. For example, when the French PM speaks, he addresses his remarks directly to the Chinese PM. However, the message is actually passed through two translators via the phone system. The French PM's translator translates his remarks into English and telephones these to the Chinese PM's translator, who translates these remarks into Chinese. b. An intermediate node serves to translate the message before passing it on."
