@dbdbfk,
None of them are correct. What are you trying to say?

@glitterbag,
I think he's saying that no matter how many times one reads Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard one will never really appreciate was motivates Yermolay Lopakhin.

At least that's what I got, either that or something about potatoes.

@dbdbfk,
Perhaps “prevent the diamond from being stolen”; however, without context it’s beyond my ability to say for certain.

@glitterbag,
Guarding the stolen diamond -- does this mean a guard/security personnel/or person is trying to protect the stolen diamond from further robbery? (probably at robbers den) -- what is the best way to put this across?

'Guarding from stealing the diamond' -- does this mean, protect the dimond in the first place from original owner. if this is incorrect what is the best way to put this accross?

@Ragman,
I need exact meaning of 'Guarding the stolen diamond' does this mean -- diamond was stolen from original owner, and kept at robber's place and some one guarding it. in this context is this correct?

@dbdbfk,
I suppose that could be the meaning, although it's very awkward. Is this the general idea? ----someone is trying to safeguard stolen property from being stolen again? or does it mean hiding the stolen property so that the owner of the stolen property can't find it?

@glitterbag,
"someone is trying to safeguard stolen property" yes

"hiding the stolen property so that the owner of the stolen property can't find it? " yes, not just from the owner but other robbers too Smile

@dbdbfk,
"although it's very awkward" there are enough hollywood movies on this situation. Watch Ocean's series

@dbdbfk,
If that's the case, someone is hiding the stolen property....not guarding it.

@dbdbfk,
ok, is guarding the stolen diamond the actual 'other language' translated to English? If it is, maybe if you present the original phrase in the original language, it can be better translated back to English. The reason I mention that is because I've owned Japanese and German cars and sometimes the instruction manual has been translated from Japanese or German into English using what I think is an automatic translation program. Those programs can cause problems because they choose the 1st meaning of a word when there may be several ways to use that word.

@glitterbag,
Everything comes back to potatoes in the end.

There's a race horse over here that was supposed to be called potatoes. The lad whose job is was to register the details heard, 'Put eight os,' so the race horse was named oooooooo.

It's still pronounced potatoes though, it's not like things have ever had to sound like they're spelled this side of the pond.
