Yes, but that doesn't answer the issue: we need to place "is" somewhere, but the question was how to know where (before or after "(some)thing").
We can make many sentences with these words, all having different meanings: "Reading is an important thing", "Reading something is important", "Reading an important thing"...
I guess the answer is that we haven't learned the accusative form yet, which would be needed for those last two translations, so we can't translate it that way.
