这老爷子是真性情!

他译的《静夜思》

床前明月光,
疑是地上霜。
举头望明月,
低头思故乡。

A Tranquil Night
Before my bed a pool of light,
I wonder if it's frost aground.
Looking up,I find the moon bright,
Bowing,in homesickness I’m drowned.

可能会被某些人批得体无完肤。不过,我很喜欢。

It might be possible. Nevertheless, the 2014 Aurora Borealis Prize for Fiction Literature was still awarded to Prof. Xu Yuanchong by Fédération Internationale des Traducteurs (FIT), not others. I think the laurel wreath is a perfect FIT.

I like this translation, too.

我也是这样认为。中国古诗词文字的美,在中译英时难以用英文文字体现;而有些貌似达意的译文,实际上失去了诗词的意境和特有的音韵美,不堪一读。许老先生的译文独树一帜,他自然流畅地把原诗的意境和神韵揉入在译文中,精妙绝伦。而且,他的译文自成一体,有其自身的美和感染力。

Happy St. Patrick's Day Mar 17

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n59lIy2FiqE

It's a Great Day for the Irish (Ruby Murray)


Oh, I woke me up this mornin', and I heard a joyful song
From the throats of happy Irishmen, a hundred thousand strong
Sure it was the Hibernian Brigade
Linin' up for to start the big parade

So I fetched me Sunday bonnet and the flag I love so well
And I bought meself a shamrock just to wear in me lapel
Don't you know that today's March Seventeen?
It's the day for the wearin' of the green


It's a great day for the Irish; it's a great day for fair
The sidewalks of New York are thick with Blarney
For sure you'd think New York was Ol' Killarney

It's a great day for the Shamrock, for the flags in full array
We're feelin' so inspirish, sure because of all the Irish
It's a great, great day



Begosh, there's not a cop to stop the raidin'
Begorrah, all the cops are out paradin'

It's a great day for the Shamrock, for the flags in full array
And as we go a-swingin', every Irish heart is singin'
It's a great, great day

春始 Mar 21

谈了这么久春天的话题,蓦然看一眼日历,今天才是公历春天正式开始的日子。这和中国农历的立春差了四十五天。今天是中国的春分,也就是把春天分成两半的日子。其实就是仲春。看来,西方人心中的春天比中国人的更温暖。农谚说“春打六九头”,离“三九严寒”才不到一个月,还是很冷的。中国人心中的春,更多的是一年初始万象更新的意涵。“飞雪迎春”、“踏雪寻梅为探春”的诗境,为中国所独有,要译成英文恐怕也颇为困难。

Hyperpolyglot Mar 25

http://www.worldcrunch.com/culture-society/hyper-polyglot-greek-translator-speaks-32-languages





BRUSSELS — Inside a gray office building in Brussels, Ioannis Ikonomou's workload is marked in different colors on his computer screen. The 49-year-old Greek translator manages the work himself, which in the next two weeks alone includes two long texts from German and French into Greek. It's a little boring, he says in perfect German, "but it's my contribution to Europe."

More exciting are three special requests: The EU Commission urgently needs translations of confidential documents from Hebrew, Chinese and Azerbaijani. Very few of the EU's 2,500 translators can handle that. Ikonomou is the best of them all. He speaks 32 languages virtually fluently, including a pair of dead languages. What his brain has managed to achieve is perhaps unique on the planet. How can a human being learn so many languages? And how does he live with that?

Ikonomou regards questions like that as "funny." He's never asked them of himself. He also doesn't know whether 32 languages would put him in the Guinness World Records Book. As he sips his green tea, he says his career developed out of curiosity. "That's a keyword for my life."

On the beaches of Crete, the young Ikonomou heard tourists speaking various languages, but he didn't understand them. He didn't play soccer, and most school subjects bored him. He preferred to delve into the world of unknown words.

… If anyone knows, it’s you. What is the most complicated language to learn?
           ---- Mandarin.
Mystery solved.

King Kugel Apr 1

     An April Fools’ Day Story
    Setting your roommate’s clock ahead a few hours. Pouring food coloring into your housemate’s shampoo. Hoisting a car on top of a roof (if you’re an MIT student, that is).

    These are fine tricks to pull on April Fools’ Day, but putting over a prank that fools the country is reserved for a very few. Joseph Boskin, a professor emeritus of history in the College of Arts & Sciences, managed it without really trying. …

The 24 Solar Terms Apr 5

      上半年來六廿一,下半年來八廿三。
