I have attempted to translate chapter 48 of Laozi's Daoism. My translation is based on the article provided by 王繼如 - 蘇州大學文學院博士生導師.
His article has explicit interpretation on Chapter 48 of Daoism from several writers.
This is my translation based on the interpretation from the above article:
In the pursuit of learning, knowledge is increased daily.
In the pursuit of Dao, actions are reduced daily.
Fewer and fewer actions are taken to the point of none.
When nothing is done, nothing remains undone.
Nonintervention gets you the whole universe.
While meddling leads you nowhere in reverse.
