初来宝地,无甚宏论,介绍个Google搜索小窍门:

每天都翻译财经/金融/投资类文档,文中以股票代码代替公司名称的情况比比皆是。数字形式的代码还好说,基本上在google.cn一搜就得(顺便说一句:搜中港台的股票代码,有时Google finance并不“灵光”)。

最头疼的不熟悉且为字母缩写的代码(而且规定一定要翻译出来)。之前都是用google.cn搜,常不得要领。比方说,代码只有一个字母:X 或者 V;又比如MMC之类十分“常见”的缩写。

这时候我发现用Google finance就非常好用,虽然搜出来都是英文,但这些公司本身也往往没有官方或权威的中文名,总好过在中文译稿里也留一串让人有些不知所云的字母缩写。

刚才就翻译了一篇介绍标普500指数变动的报告,满眼的字母缩写代码,用Google finance全都能搜准——"准"不是空口白话,我后来拿到(包括代码对应的公司名称)全文报告做过交叉检验。

再顺便说一句:有些google也搜不出来的,可能是彭博/路透代码(网上彭博代码比路透少见),如果能上它们的终端,这些名称方面的小问题往往也能迎刃而解。


呵呵,雕虫小技,贻笑大方。
