Lost in translation

What do you all think about English works where many distinctly different terms are all translated into "enlightenment"?

I feel like there is a huge misunderstanding going on in the West because of the over use of this catch all.
If there is a radical inconsistency between your statements and the position you claim to hold,
you are a sock puppet.
Make as many accounts as you want; people can identify your deception with this test.
