The culture of the powerful industrial countries is one of the most important factors affecting lifestyles and developments in the majority of other societies in this era of globalization and information exchange. The main points in the context of cultural transactions are the type and degree of this kind of influence, which will result in either submissiveness or dominance. This domination does not come necessarily by force (military forces), but by propaganda and advertising, and imitation and repetition of cultural patterns and lifestyles in other societies, and eventually result in intellectual reformation and transformation. During the past decades, undeveloped and underdeveloped countries have taken developed countries as a model, relying on imitation and repetition of their ideas and theories as well as their behaviors in different aspects of life. In this regard, the main focus of this paper is on context and equivalents of idioms. In fact, the main question of the research is that in cultural transactions, what aspects have to be considered so that besides gaining benefit from human scientific achievements, intellectual/cultural dominance of societies be prevented. The inductive approach is the main research method, and some specific aspects will be analyzed to reach a general conclusion. Finally, two distinct cases (place and space) will be discussed. The most important results of the research are as follows: explaining the process through which space transforms to place in a city; introducing definitions of different orders of place; introducing different classifications of place; errors in current translations; and the meaning of terms in different languages in relation to their respective culture.
