As emphasized in a recent review (by V.V. Palyulin, T. Ala-Nissila, R. Metzler), theoretical understanding of the unbiased polymer translocation lags behind that of the (strongly) driven translocation. Here, we suggest the introduction of a weakly-driven regime, as described by the linear response theory to the unbiased regime, which is followed by the strongly-driven regime beyond the onset of nonlinear response. This provides a concise crossover scenario, bridging the unbiased to strongly-driven regimes.
