Nowadays, quite a few Chinese websites are flooded with wrongly written or mispronounced Chinese characters,which could result in a literal disaster in the near future.I am struggling to keep aloof from this trend. So, dear folks, can you please recommend any Chinese websites which you think are linguistically reliable to me? Besides, is there a kind of Chinese software which can rectify grammar or spelling errors(just as MS Word)? I seem to badly need it!Thanks a lot!Xiexie!

各位译友:大家辛苦了!可否推荐一些内容好且不含错别字的中文网站(繁简体均可)?本人已被网上漫天飞舞的错字、别字吓坏了,不知各位是否有同感?长此以往,“字”将不“字”、\"文\"将不\"文\"了! 另外,有没有什么好的中文软件(或icon_smile.gif软体)能象MS Word 一样可以纠正错别字?附:若有英汉(汉英)医学/化学词典网址,也请一并告知。icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

译海拾贝 Jul 28, 2002





1).In the Still of the Night

I descry bright moonlight in front of my bed.

I suspect it to be hoary frost on the floor.

I watch the bright moon, as I tilt back my head.

I yearn, while stooping, for my homeland more.


2).A Tranquil Night

Abed, I see a silver light,

I wonder if it\'s frost aground.

Looking up, I find the moon bright;

Bowing, in homesickness I\'m drowned.


3).In the Quiet Night

So bright a gleam on the foot of my bed---

Could there have been a frost already?

Lifting my head to look, I found that it was moonlight.

Sinking back again, I thought suddenly of home.

(Tr. Witter Bynner)

4). Night Thoughts

I wake, and moonbeams play around my bed,

Glittering like hoar-frost to my wandering eyes;

Up towards the glorious moon I raise my head,

Then lay me down---and thoughts of home arise.

( Tr. Herbert A. Giles)

5). On a Quiet Night

I saw the moonlight before my couch,

And wondered if it were not the frost on the ground.

I raised my head and looked out on the mountain noon,

I bowed my head and though of my far-off home.

(Tr. S. Obata)

6).The Moon Shines Everywhere

Seeing the moon before my couch so bright

I thought hoar frost had fallen from the night.

On her clear face I gaze with lifted eyes:

Then hide them full of Youth\'s sweet memories.

(Tr. W.J.B. Fletcher)

7). Night Thoughts

In front of my bed the moonlight is very bright.

I wonder if that can be frost on the floor?

I list up my head and look at the full noon, the dazzling moon.

I drop my head, and think of the home of old days.

(Tr. Amy Lowell)

8. Thoughts in a Tranquil Night

Athwart the bed

I watch the moonbeams cast a trail

So bright, so cold, so frail,

That for a space it gleams

Like hoar-frost on the margin of my dreams.

I raise my head, -

The splendid moon I see:

Then droop my head,

And sink to dreams of thee -

My father land , of thee!

(Tr. L.Cranmer-Byng)

9). Nostalgia

A splash of white on my bedroom floor. Hoarfrost?

I raise my eyes to the moon, the same noon.

As scenes long past come to mind, my eyes fall again on the splash of white,

and my heart aches for home.


My preference: (1) or (2).

My version Jul 29, 2002




Thoughts in a Quiet Night

By Li Bai

So bright was the moonlight on my bed

As if it were the hoar frost shed

I Looked up at the gleaming moon,

with the homesickness crawled in,

I lowered my head
