Chinese to English: Aboriginal artist Painting Story-Yanjirlpirri(napaljarri)-Warnu Star & Seven Sisters
Source text - Chinese Painting Story:
The Napaljarri-warnu Jukurrpa (seven sisters Dreaming) depicts the story of the seven ancestral Napaljarri sisters who are found in the night sky today in the cluster of seven stars in the constellation Taurus, more commonly known as the Pleiades. The Pleiades are seven women of the Napaljarri skin group and are often depicted in paintings of this Jukurrpa carrying the Jampijinpa man "wardilyka"(the bush turkey [Ardeotis australias]) who is in love with the Napaljarri-warnu and who represents the Orion's belt cluster of stars. Jukurra-jukurra, the morning star, is a Jakamarra man who is also in love with the seven Napaljarri sisters and is often shown chasing them across the night sky. In a final attempt to escape from the Jakamarra the Napaljarri-warnu turned themselves into fire and ascended to the heavens to become stars. The custodians of the Napaljarri-warnu Jukurrpa are Japaljarri/Jungarrayi men and Napaljarri/Nunarrayi women. Some parts of the Napaljarri-warnu Jukurrpa are closely associated with men's sacred ceremonies; Yanjirlpirri Jukurrpa (Star Dreaming) This ceremony tells of the journey of Japaljarri and Jungarrayi men who travelled from Kurlurngalinypa (near Lajamanu) to Yanjirlypirri (west of Yuendumu) and then on to Lake Mackay on the West Australian border. Along the way they performed "kurdiji"(initiation ceremonies) for young men. Women also danced for the "kurdiji". The site depicted in this canvas is Yanjirlypiri (star) where there is a low hill and a water soakage . The importance of this place cannot be overemphasized as young boys are brought here to be initiated from as far as Pitjanjatjara country to the south and Lajamanu to the north. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements. Often depicted in paintings for this Jukurrpa is the female star Yantarlarangi ( Venus - the Evening Star) who chases the seven Napaljarri sisters for having stolen the night from her.
Translation - English 绘画作品的故事：
纳帕雅利-瓦努之云库帕（七姐妹之梦）描绘了古老的纳帕雅利七姐妹的故事。您能在今夜的星空中发现她们，她们位于金牛座的七星团，常被称为昴宿星团。七位来自纳帕雅利肤色族群的女性代表了昴宿星团，她们常出现在梦创时期的绘画作品中。这些作品中还有雅皮巾帕男人“瓦迪里卡”（灌木火鸡 [澳大利亚鸨]），他爱上了纳帕雅利-瓦努姐妹，代表猎户座的星群。雅库拉-雅库拉代表一颗晨星，他是雅卡玛拉男人，也爱上了七姐妹，常能看到他在夜空中追逐她们。在最后一次试图逃离雅卡玛拉时，七姐妹将自己变成了火，升上天空化为星星。七姐妹之梦的守护者是雅帕雅利/云加拉利的男人和纳帕雅利/努娜拉伊的女人，它有一部分与男性神秘的仪式紧密相联。岩雅皮利之云库帕（星之梦）的仪式讲述了雅帕雅利和云加拉利的男人从库仑加林帕（靠近拉雅玛努）到岩雅皮利（云恩杜姆以西）再到西澳大利亚边境麦凯湖的旅程。在旅途中，他们为年轻男性举行“库迪伊”（开始仪式）；女性也为“库迪伊”翩翩起舞。这幅画布中描绘的地点是岩雅皮利（星），拥有低山和水源。除了这个地点的重要性，更要强调的是起初从远至南边的皮岩雅特雅拉县和北边的拉雅玛努被带到这里的年轻男性。在当代的瓦皮利绘画作品中，传统的图案用来代表云库帕、相关的地点和其它元素。梦创时期的绘画作品常常描绘代表女性的岩雅皮利星（金星 — 晚星），她们追逐着纳帕雅利七姐妹，因为七姐妹偷走了属于她的夜空。
Chinese to English: Inspection report of steel pipes (partial) General field: Tech/Engineering Detailed field: Mechanics / Mech Engineering
4.1 Steel pipe diameter is measured by using a tape measure in addition to the specialized methods stipulated in the contract for the order of goods. When directly using a steel tape measure at the pipe end, or when using a tape measure to measure the circumference of the steel pipe end or the steel pipe body, one shall place the tape measure perpendicular to the same cross-section of the steel pipe, tighten (straighten) the tape measure, align the numbers on the tape measure, read the circumference data and calculate the diameter.
4.3 Ovality, the ovality is determined by the deviation of the maximum diameter and the minimum diameter measured on the same cross-section. When measuring the steel pipe ovality, use the 3m tape measure or other measurement tools to measure and record the ovality of the steel pipe body and pipe end.
4.4 When examining the straightness deviation of the full length of a steel pipe, one can pull a thin string or a thin metal wire from one end of the steel pipe side to another parallel to the steel pipe axis along the lateral surface of the steel pipe, then measure the maximum distance between the pipe wall and the string or the wire using a steel tape measure or a vernier caliper.
4.5 The length of the steel pipe is measured using a tape measure for each pipe.
4.6 When examining the bevel angle of the steel pipe end, one can set the benchmark to be perpendicular to the central line of the steel pipe and measure the angle using an angle ruler or a welding inspection ruler. Both sides of the steel pipe are required to be measured with data recorded.
