Answered by Graeme Shimmin

Graeme Shimmin 回答:

There is an old story about two Greek islanders vying to become the strongest man on the island. 

有一个古老的故事,说的是两个希腊岛民相互竞争、想成为岛上最强壮的男人。

One trainee bought a newborn calf. The other laughed at him. How could a calf help his rival train? But every day the wise trainee lifted it. Every day the calf got a little bigger and heavier but he could still lift it because it was only a little bit heavier than the previous day. After a year the wise trainee saw the calf was now a bull but he could still lift it.
In the meantime the unwise trainee had tried every day to lift a bull.
He had failed every time.

其中一个人买了一头小牛犊,另一个人便嘲笑他。一头小牛犊怎么可能帮他赢得比赛呢?接下来,这个聪明人每天都练习将小牛犊举起。小牛犊一天天长大、变重,但这个人还是能将它举起,毕竟它只比前一天重一点点罢了。经过一年的训练,这只小牛犊已经长成了一头大公牛,但他仍能将其举起。
而与此同时,另一个人每天都试着将一头大牛举起,却屡试屡败。

Graeme Shimmin的回答

There is an old story about two Greek islanders vying to become the strongest man on the island.

有一个老故事说的是两个希腊岛民要比赛成为岛上最强壮的男人。

One trainee bought a newborn calf. The other laughed at him. How could a calf help his rival train? But every day the wise trainee lifted it.

一个人抓来一头刚出生的小牛。另一个人嘲笑他。一头小牛怎么可能帮他获胜呢?但每天这个聪明的人都练习把小牛举起来。

Every day the calf got a little bigger and heavier but he could still lift it because it was only a little bit heavier than the previous day. After a year the wise trainee saw the calf was now a bull but he could still lift it.

每天小牛都有大了一点点,重了一点点,但是他还是可以举起它,因为它只是比前一天重了一点点而已。经过了一年的训练,小牛长成了大牛,但是聪明的选手还是可以举起它。

In the meantime the unwise trainee had tried every day to lift a bull.

He had failed every time.

与此同时比较笨的那个人每天都训练自己举起一头大牛。但每次都以失败告终。

(各个国家都有这样类似的故事啊哈哈,看过一个是举牛加跳树的)

矮~看到“牛是怎么心甘情愿被举起来的”这个问题,我突然想到家里还没断奶的狗宝宝昨天不让我抱还啃我T.T
这个世界好残酷,
只有翻译对我温柔=。=

哈哈


1. Is there such a thing as a useless person?
有没有像没有用的人那样的东西?

这句话你的译文完全是照着原文的顺序来的,把“such a thing as”也翻出来了,这样会显得累赘,很简单的一句话:有没有完全没用的人?这样就可以咯。


2. What are some of the best comebacks to a teacher?
对老师最好的回击是什么?

Comeback翻成“回击”略奇怪咯,联系上下文可以发现这个词就是“回复”的意思。可以理解为“和老师抬杠”。

1. Is there such a thing as a useless pe...

进步神速!棒棒哒!好几个地方都翻得很有味道~~~~

来看几个小问题:


1. Which personality traits often lead to failure?
什么样的性格会经常导致失败?

这里的often翻成“往往”不仅更精确、而且更符合中文的表达习惯。
什么样的性格往往会导致失败?


2. What's one easy way to waste a life?
有什么消磨时光的好方法

Waste life含贬义哦,是虚掷时光,“消磨时光”这个表达比较中性,表现不出感情色彩~


3. What are some of the best comebacks to a teacher?
对一个老师来说最好的回击是什么

to后面指代的是学生comeback(也就是回复、抬杠)的对象,所以翻成“对一个老师来说”是不准确哒。

回复 Nandag:

1. Is there such a thing as a useless pe...

整体非常流畅,有些地方的遣词也很地道,比如“Which personality traits often lead to failure?”中的often翻成了“往往”而不是“经常” 对的;对于口语化这个问题嘛,我感觉我只记得自己看到了好些“啥”字=。= 哈哈,口语化没什么问题,主要还是取决于材料。


Get affected by all the shit that people throw at you. 在意别人给你的负能量。

哈哈!嗯嗯,又到了“我真的知道意思呀可我就是说不出来”的痛苦时刻!
