I don't know ... Nov 28, 2012

Maybe they're used to treating all politicians - regardless where the politician governs - the same way they treat our politicians over here.

People would say 10 times more unflattering things about some of our own politicians at the drop of a hat.

"The 99¢ Best Seller" by Andrew Rice Dec 3, 2012

This article was published in this week's Time Magazine. It basically is about the profit calculations behind the digital-driven phenomenon of self-publishing, in a nutshell.

For you truly talented and motivated wordsmiths out there, why not try your hand at it?

“不倫不類”的“企業”? Dec 3, 2012

  “企業”=“Enterprise”=“勇往直前”

  在美國海軍歷史上,第一艘以“企業”號命名的船只,是在美國獨立戰爭期間俘獲的英國單桅縱帆船。這也是美國海軍第二古老的軍艦,最古老的是著名的“憲法”號。

  初聽“企業”號這個名字,很多人都會疑惑:一艘軍艦取這樣一個名兒,到底是要表達什麼意思?看看“企業” 號的英文原名,或許你就知道了。

  “企業”,“Enterprise”。 這個英文單詞翻譯成漢語有多種解釋。解釋1:商業上的一種事業體組合稱為“企業”。 解釋2:代表一種勇敢的品格,有“進取”、“勇往直前”之意。

  依據美國海軍字典[1],船艦稱“Enterprise”取其“勇敢、活躍及在實際事務上之創意”之意(Boldness, energy, and invention in practical affairs)。

  所以,這個艦名應該翻譯成“勇敢”號或者“進取”號更合適一些,可惜很多早期資料和刊物都採用了最常用的意思來直接翻譯,於是就成了“企業”號。隨著人們習以為常,這個有些“不倫不類”的名字,也慢慢被國人接受了。 (中國評論通訊社)

莫言將領獎 帶3翻譯5套裝 Dec 4, 2012

距離10日諾貝爾文學獎頒獎典禮只剩一周,山東高密市文化廣電新聞出版局長邵春生透露,莫言將於5日出發,帶夫人杜勤蘭、女兒以及英語、俄語、西班牙語翻譯等十人赴瑞典,並準備中山裝、燕尾服等五套西裝。(世界新聞網-北美華文新聞)

不知這裏是否有同事與莫言同往,赴瑞典要帶“俄語、西班牙語翻譯”有點摸不著頭。

北韓開發多語言翻譯程式 Dec 4, 2012

最近宣告要在近期內試射長程火箭的北韓,今天(3日)宣稱開發出一種能翻譯3種以上語言的電腦程式。

  北韓宣傳網站「我們民族之間」表示,朝鮮親善聯合會研究團隊,開發出一種以朝鮮文(韓文)為主的多語言翻譯程式。

  網站表示,翻譯程式系統可將朝鮮文、俄羅斯文、中文、英文、日文等語言互相翻譯。

  北韓方面將此程式命名為「星」,據說它的翻譯速度可達每秒5到10句,而且正確度頗高。(中央社)

難怪咱們延邊人民想幹點翻譯活也不容易。

The date 12-12-12 is said to be an auspicious calendar number. Dec 12, 2012

By SUSAN DONALDSON JAMES
Dec. 12, 2012
Polly Blitzer-Wolkstein, founder and editor of the website Beauty Blitz, celebrates her birthday today -- Dec. 12, 2012 -- but with no trepidation.

"I don't subscribe to numerology," the 37-year-old New Yorker said.

"I don't like to shoehorn meaning into things, and with twin babies and a business to run, I don't have time to be superstitious," she added. "I think it's way cooler that I share a birthday with Frank Sinatra. Am I going to be struck by lightning now?"

Maybe, say numerologists, who are mixed on what the day portends.

Today is 12-12-12, the last major numerical date using the Gregorian or Christian calendar for almost another century. The next time three numbers will align as they did on 9-9-09, 10-10-10 and 11-11-11 will be on Jan. 1, 3001, or 1-1-1.

中國文學走向世界需加強翻譯工作 Dec 12, 2012

很多人通過莫言的獲獎認識了其作品瑞典文譯者陳安娜,卻鮮有人知曉出版莫言瑞典文版小說的“鶴”出版社創始人、共同推動莫言作品走入瑞典的漢學家倫納特‧倫德貝裏。他近日在接受新華社記者專訪時表示,莫言獲獎的確會推動世界對中國文學的關注,但中國文學真正走向世界依然面臨著語言和文化差異,要克服這些障礙需要各方進一步擴大對中國文學作品翻譯的推動。新華網斯德哥爾摩12月11日電(記者 和苗)

看後這則新聞,有兩個即時的反應∶1)這裏的同仁不愁無活可幹。2)中國作家何不用英文寫作。

中歐啟動專利中英文機器翻譯合作 Dec 12, 2012

中國國家知識產權局和歐洲專利局6日在布魯塞爾正式啟動了專利中英文機器翻譯合作。

  根據雙方達成的協議,歐洲專利局網站建立起英文、中文的自動翻譯體係,使中文專利內容能夠在網站上自動翻譯成其他指定國家的語言,也可以把網站上的英文內容自動翻譯成中文。這將幫助中國企業獲取歐洲相關專利信息,也幫助歐洲企業獲取中國的相關信息。

  歐洲專利局2012年推出了“專利翻譯”服務,目前這個專利翻譯服務可以將英文翻譯為法語、德語、意大利語、葡萄牙語、中文等14種語言。

  專利翻譯服務集成了免費的“歐洲專利數據庫”搜索網站,涵蓋了來自世界各地的超過7500萬的專利條目。與中國國家知識產權局合作之後,數據庫將新增400萬中文專利條目。人民日報 2012年12月07日

同仁們,請做好兩手的準備。

专利中译英 Dec 13, 2012

连人工翻译的都错误百出,那机器翻译的更不知会怎样呢!

无论如何,专利翻译的需求在明显增长。这对于翻译工作者而言总是个好消息。

机器翻译仍是差得很远 Dec 13, 2012

Google 搞了这么多年还是差得很远。 我网上随便找了一段关于是否需要安装 cpu heatsink 的提问:

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081125190108AACg8op

其中一位网友如此回答:





Do you plan to overclock it? If so, then yes. Otherwise, on regular non-OC use, just the stock cooling is fine.





你打算超频吗?如果是这样的话,是肯定的。否则,在普通的非OC使用,只是股票冷却的罚款。




Google 翻得不行,尤其是最后半句,翻得驴头不对马嘴。
