In Chinese, there is a word called "yuán fèn", which means the destiny that ties people together, at special time and place. In English, is there one word that can express that meaning?
The closest equivalent English* word would appear to be fate:
- The supposed force, principle, or power that predetermines events: Fate did not favor his career. - thefreedictionary.com
Fate can be used in the context of individuals (his fate, her fate etc.), groups (their fate, they were fated etc.) or as an overarching power (fate was against them) in a way that is not quite as applicable to the near synonym destiny. Which as the first definition at thefreedictionary.com implies is usually used in association with individuals:
n. pl. des·ti·nies
The inevitable or necessary fate to which a particular person or thing is destined; one's lot.
*A loanword that also seems to be a close match is kismet.
The answer to the question is "no!". There are many cases of words in one language that have no exact equivalent in another language. This makes the life of a professional translator difficult. It is also why to speak a second language well you have to understand it internally without reference and translation into your first language.
