comment I need help translating >how< a word would be spoken
That said, I think Bob should include the words he'd like to approximate. Otherwise the answer "I can help you" would be perfectly valid, but useless for everyone else

comment I need help translating >how< a word would be spoken
While Pedroski is right, there are some legitimate uses for the information Bob is asking for, like phrase books for travelers who are not realistically going to learn the language. Besides, the most important thing to get right in Spanish is not 'rr' or 'z', but the vowels, so while the final result would still sound quite funny I think to a certain extent it can be useful

comment List of US universities in English and Chinese
You didn't even mark James Wu's answer as correct and even asked him for a CSV version. You're asking ppl here to make your work.

comment Help to translate “红烧肉” to a foreigner
This is not an answer, but a comment to Cocowalla's answer. As a comment I like it though.

comment Generally speaking, is it not possible to indicate 'was' or 'were' on '是‘?
I agree with your interpretation, but "aren't you working?" and "are you working?" mean the same in English (+/- the implicit expectation of an affirmative answer in the first case). So I would rather translate it more accurately (though not more idiomatically) like "Yingzi, you are NOT working for a company, RIGHT?"

comment Which fonts show the stroke order of all characters?
@Alenanno I know, but you said that because the tag is "simplified", it has to refer to Mandarin, and that is simply not the case

@trideceth12 that's funny, but that 're' part goes only for Northern Chinese Mandarin speakers.

@Alenanno, Mandarin is a spoken dialect which is writeable both with traditional and simplified characters, just like other dialects such as Minnan (Taiwanese)
