Subject: The meaning of the word "vision" in languages other than English


Hi all-

We are trying to decide on a name for a conference and want
to make sure it doesn't mean anything undesirable in any 
other language (like it did last year...)

So the question is, does "Vision" mean anything in any other
language? I am conducting a dictionary/translation search,
but I am concerned about slang definitions.

If you know if it DOES, or DOES NOT, please respond to
kriscoopyahoo.com and let me know:

1. what language
2. what it means (or if it means nothing...)

thanks in advance for your help!

- kristin
