Found that /awaked to
Message from zgqcn posted on 28-11-2011 at 10:21:16 (D | E | F)
Hello,

Would you like please to tell me whether the sentences in red in the paragraphs can be exchanged?
Thank you for your answers.


Original Text from THE WALL STREET JOURNAL:

Shanghai's hygiene bureau objected when Scott Minoie tried to build an open kitchen in his first Element Fresh restaurant nearly a decade ago, saying it would be unsightly:"too foreign."

But the Boston native persuaded officials to let him press ahead,confident that Chinese consumers, concerned with food safety, would apprecaite a Western-style bistro that lets diner see their laffa-bread salads and raspberry smoothies while they're being made.

Now he has a chain of 11 restaurants. Sales are on track to hit $30 million in this year, up 40% from last year, according to Element Fresh's managing partner, Frank Rashce. The chain's profit margin hovered between 10% and 15% last year, he says. The plan to open about 40 more outlets in China by 2015.

Mr. Minoie's sucess contrasts with the experiences of a string of big Western restaurant chains that have failed here. Applebee's, Outback Steakhouse and California Pizza Kitchen, for example, have found that brand recognition and experience in other markets can get lost in translation in China.

Rewritten Text from my poor English:

Mr. Minoie's success contrasts with the failure experience of a string of big Western restaurant chains here. For example, Applebee's, Outlook Steakhouse and California Pizza Kitchen, they have awaked to the fact that brand awareness and experience in the other markets would lose in the translation process in China.

Hi,
You could say' have woken up to the fact that.........would be lost in the translation process in China'. You have changed the meaning a little. If you use the expression 'woken up to the fact that' it suggests that they have eventually discovered the fact. In the original there is no idea of 'eventually' or 'in the end', although it could be implied from the context.
Best Wishes
