How is the jargon in Shadowrun translated in other languages?

After 5 years of her refusing, I have finally convinced my wife to try playing a Pen and Paper RPG. But. She claims she has no imagination. Is this going to be a horrible experience, or is there hope? Have you ever gamed with someone who was willing to learn, but had to overcome the "getting into it" factor? [more inside]
