The translation may be ‘Install the installation’. It is obviously showed that Chinese verbs are part of nouns. Verbs behave like nominals.

Also, the transitivity of Chinese verbs is hard to determine. Most verbs can be used interchangeably (transitive or intransitive) and manifest more flexibility than their English counterparts.
