总觉得应该可以找到汉语中相对应的名称 Jul 17, 2007

Orientalhorizon 的解释非常有说服力,at least I think so. I am ready to listen to other comrades' suggestions.

“Novation” 、“Wholesome”、“Dial in Texture”分别为三种系列化产品名称(在其公司内部原来即为三大科研项目)。Novation是所谓“更新系列”,即绿色有机淀粉产品;Wholesome为所谓“健康系列”,属于健康与美容产品;“Dial in Texture”为粘合剂类产品,所谓“符合自然纹理”。主要都强调绿色、健康、自然。应当尚无确定的汉语名称。


"Holy Grail/EASY-PAC" 也是项目计划或品牌名称。Holy Grail为最后晚餐中耶苏所用圣盘,现多译为“圣杯”,其实是译错了的。多喻努力要达成的祟高目标。而EASY-PAC,显然是英文EASY PACKING或EASY PACKAGING之类的变异写法,就是便于包装的意思。

怎么没有高人出来指点啊 Jul 22, 2007

既然是产品广告,我觉得译者有发挥的余地,Orientalhorizon的关于:“Novation” 、“WholesomeNovation,即“更新系列”“健康系列”的说法我比较赞成,唯独“Dial in Texture”还是没有搞懂, 希望有高人出来指点。
