Dear everyone,

I came across the sentense below. I do not understand what the sentense says. Can you explain the meaning of this sentense for me please? Could you also tell me what kind of grammar is it and how I can use it?

"We will do everything in our power to ensure the transition is smooth and the experience is as seamless as possible."

Thank you so much for your kind help.

Hi,
A 'transition' means a change from one situation or thing to another.
A 'seam' is, for example, where you sew two pieces of cloth together. A 'seamless' transition means you go from one situation to another without noticing the change, without having difficulty with the change.
'Smooth' also means 'easy', as opposed to 'bumpy'.
So, the sentence means:

We will do everything that we can to make the transition and the experience as easy as possible.

I hope this explanation is enough for you.
If part of this grammar is still causing you trouble, please tell me which part, or which words.

Best wishes,
Clive

Hello Clive,

Thanks a lot for a great explanation. It is all very clear to me.
However, I would like to know about the grammar used in the sentense. Why there are two times "is" in the sentence?

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi again,

"We will do everything in our power to ensure the transition is smooth and the experience is as seamless as possible."

'the transition is smooth and the experience is as seamless as possible' is a noun clause.
It's really two 'ideas' (sentences) joined by 'and'.

A simpler example with 'is' twice is

'Tom is clever and he is rich'.

It's basically the same kind of grammar.

Write again if you need more help, OK?
Clive
