    <汉译英> 中文原文: 当生活中的不确定感向你袭来 我的一个好朋友最近接受了白血病测试。她对我说,最令人痛苦的折磨就是苦苦等待测试结果的那一周时间。我朋友说,她译可能会学着直面坏结果。但真正让人煎熬焦虑的是那种茫然的感觉。 孟克(Edvard Munch)的名画《呐喊》哈佛大学心理学家吉尔伯特(Daniel Gilbert)不久前在《纽约时报》(New York Times)的专栏中写道,不知道要发生什么坏事比知道什么坏事要发生的感觉更糟。我们大多数人之所以会夜不能寐、抽烟发泄,并不是因为道琼斯指数要再跌1000 点,而是因为我们不知道道指会不会下跌──不确定的感觉比不确定的事情本身更折磨人。 参考译文: Coping With the Certainty of Uncertainty A close friend of mine recently underwent tests for leukemia. The most agonizing part of the ordeal, she said, was the week-long wait for the test results. A bad outcome she could learn to cope with, my friend said. It was the not knowing, the uncertainty, that was so difficult. People feel worse when something bad might occur than when something bad will occur,' wrote Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert in a recent New York Times op-ed. 'Most of us aren't losing sleep and sucking down Marlboros because the Dow is going to fall another thousand points, but because we don't know whether it will fall or not ─ and human beings find uncertainty more painful than the things they're uncertain about. 声明:沪江网高度重视知识产权保护,发现本网站发布的信息包含有侵犯其著作权的链接内容时,请联系我们,我们将做相应处理。

    <汉译英> 中文原文: 两只老虎 有两只老虎,一只在笼子里,一只在野地里。在笼子里的老虎三餐无忧,在外面的老虎自由自在。 笼子里的老虎总是羡慕外面老虎的自由,外面的老虎却羡慕笼子里的老虎安逸。一日,一只老虎对另一只老虎说:“咱们换一换。”另一只老虎同意了。 于是笼子里的老虎走进了大自然,野地里的老虎走译进了笼子。但不久,两只老虎都死了。一只是饥饿而死,一只是忧郁而死。 许多时候,人们往往对自己的幸福熟视无睹,而觉得别人的幸福很耀眼,却想不到别人的幸福也许对自己不合适。 参考译文: Two Tigers There were two tigers; one lived in a cage and the other in the wild. The caged one didn't have to worry about his meal while the one outside was unrestrained. The caged tiger was always envious of the freedom of the one in the wild, while the other one envied the caged one for his ease. One day, one tiger said to the other: "let's change places". The other one agreeded. There upon the caged one went back to nature while the other came into the cage. But before long both died, one of starvation, and the other, melancholy. Sometimes one is not conscious of his own happiness and always thinks the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, but not think over that one man's meat is another man's poison. 声明:沪江网高度重视知识产权保护,发现本网站发布的信息包含有侵犯其著作权的链接内容时,请联系我们,我们将做相应处理。

    <汉译英> 进取的幸福 中文原文: 正是因为不停地追求进取,我们才感到生活幸福。一件事完成后,另一件随之而来,如此连绵不绝,永无止境。对于往前看的人来说,眼前总有一番新天地。虽然我们蜗居于这颗小行星上,整日忙于琐事且生命短暂,但我们生来就有不尽的希望,如天上繁星,遥不可及。只要生命犹在,希望便会不止。真正的幸福在于怎样开始,而不是如何结束,在于我们的希翼,而并非拥有。 参考译文: We live in an ascending scale when we live happily, one thing leading to another in an endless series. There is always a new horizon for onward-looking men, and although we dwell on a small planet, immersed in petty business and not enduring beyond a brief period of years, we are so constituted that our hopes are inaccessible, like stars, and the term of hoping is prolonged until the term of life. To be truly happy is a question of how we begin and not of how we end, of what we want and not of what we have. 声明:沪江网高度重视知识产权保护,发现本网站发布的信息包含有侵犯其著作权的链接内容时,请联系我们,我们将做相应处理。

    <汉译英> 婚姻的旅程 中文原文: 当你步入婚姻的殿堂,你可能认为已经爬到了山顶,剩下的只是悠闲地沿着平缓的山坡下山。然而,这译只是恋爱的结束,婚姻的开始。拥有一颗骄傲而又叛逆的心,坠入爱河与赢得爱情都是难事;但维持爱情也很重要,夫妻都应相敬如宾,互相关爱。当真爱起始于圣坛之时,夫妻之间便开始了一场智慧与慷慨的竞争,一场为了一个不可能实现的理想而持续一生的奋斗。不可能实现?啊,当然不可能,因为他们不是一个人,而是两个呀。 参考译文: Again, when you have married your wife, you would think you were got upon a hilltop, and might begin to go downward by an easy slope. But you have only ended courting to begin marriage. Falling in love and winning love are often difficult tasks to overbearing and rebellious spirits; but to keep in love is also a business of some importance, to which both man and wife must bring kindness and goodwill. The true love story commences at the altar, when there lies before the married pair a most beautiful contest of wisdom and generosity, and a life-long struggle towards an unattainable ideal. Unattainable? Ay, surely unattainable, from the very fact that they are two instead of one. 声明:沪江网高度重视知识产权保护,发现本网站发布的信息包含有侵犯其著作权的链接内容时,请联系我们,我们将做相应处理。

    <汉译英> 中文原文: 它本身不用说,已经是望帝的化身了。有时又被认为薄命的佳人,忧国的志士;声是满腹乡思,血是遍山踯躅;可怜、哀惋、纯洁、至诚……在人们的心目中成了爱的象征。这爱的象征似乎已经成为了民族的感情。而且,这种感情还超越了民族的范围,东方诸国大都受了感染。然而,这实在是名不符实的一个最大的例证。 参考译文: To begin with, she is the [w]incarnation[/w] of the legendary king of ancient Sichuan named Wang Di.She has come to be known sometimes as a beauty with misfortune and sometimes as a patriot concerned over the fate of the nation. Her call is full of longings for home; she loiters about the mountains crying and spitting up blood, She is pathetic, sad, pure and sincere…She is in the eyes of all a symbol of love, which seems to have become a national feeling. And this feeling has gone beyond the national boundary to affect most of the eastern countries. Nevertheless, all that is a typical instance of undeserved reputation. 声明:沪江网高度重视知识产权保护,发现本网站发布的信息包含有侵犯其著作权的链接内容时,请联系我们,我们将做相应处理。

    <汉译英> 男女真的平等? 中文原文: 万事万物由方方面面组成,而那个“男女都一样”的口号,只是向女人提出要求,却没有相同的口号要求男人和女人做得一样:一样耐心持久地抚育孩子一样任劳任怨地操持家务;一样尽心尽责地侍奉老人。仔细想想,“男女都一样”的口号曾鼓励着许多妇女竭力地建树了和男人一样的丰功伟绩,同时,女人却依然要做那些和男人不一样的事。其实,所谓“一样”的口号,使女人在做着女人的同时再做男人;其实,所谓“一样”的口号,让女人们又给自己加重了一挑担子;其实,女人和男译人在根本上还是不一样的。 参考译文: All things under heaven and earth are made up of different parts, but the slogan "women are as good as men" makes demands on women without making a corresponding demand on men to be “just as good as women”:to raise children just as patiently, to do household chores just as [w]uncomplainingly[/w], to care for the old just as dutifully. Come to think of it, the slogan "women are as good as men” has spurred women on to achievements to challenge men’s. But at the same time,women must still do what men do not stoop to. The fact is, “women are as good as men” means that women after doing what women do, must take up another burden. Let's face it, basically women are not as the same as men. 声明:沪江网高度重视知识产权保护,发现本网站发布的信息包含有侵犯其著作权的链接内容时,请联系我们,我们将做相应处理。
