Long explanation:

'Nhà văn' is a Vietnamese term usually encompassing the meaning of a 'author' or 'writer' in English. The term is made up of two words, where 'nhà' literally means 'house' but is used in a broader sense to represent a place, domain or a person associated with a specific activity, and 'văn' represents literature. So combined together, 'nhà văn' is someone who is associated with the domain of literature, specifically a writer.
