I would use English: "If you are a member of a primitive community and wish to produce food, for example, there are two things you must do."

hey spurrymoses, welcome to tatoeba :)

this sentence seems ok as it is...it's better to leave it as it is and yours as a second translation

see: http://blog.tatoeba.org/2010/02...eba.html#rule5

thank you

*and add yours

Actually, I was too kind. I meant to correct it and improve it.

If you are happy with it, then I must point out that the word 'thing' must be plural (ie things) otherwise the English is wrong.

...and I thank you for that

I've corrected this, and added the sentence you suggested as an alternative.
This sentence wasn't owned by anyone so you might want to correct similar sentences yourself in the future...
