English to Chinese: NIKE golf clubs
Source text - English This year, Nike has introduced a new line called the VR_S Covert featuring a new driver, fairway woods, hybrids, and irons. The driver’s fire engine red finish and trademark “swoosh” makes it hard to miss on television. This club features a unique cavity back design that allows for more weight to be distributed to the heel and toe of the clubhead. Nike’s FlexLoft adjustability system allows for loft and face angle adjustments creating 15 different options to match to your swing. Although a number of Nike Tour Pros will be using the Covert this year, look for Rory McIlroy to be leading the charge with his brand new clubs alongside Nick Watney who has also recently switched to Nike Covert.

English to Chinese: RoHS
Source text - English While the first Battery Directive addressed possible trade barrier issues brought about by disparate European member states' implementation, the new directive more explicitly highlights improving and protecting the environment from the negative effects of the waste contained in batteries.
It also contains a programme for more ambitious recycling of industrial, automotive, and consumer batteries, gradually increasing the rate of manufacturer-provided collection sites to 45% by 2016.
It also sets limits of 5 ppm mercury and 20 ppm cadmium to batteries except those used in medical, emergency, or portable power-tool devices.
Though not setting quantitative limits on quantities of lead, lead-acid, nickel, and nickel-cadmium in batteries, it cites a need to restrict these substances and provide for recycling up to 75% of batteries with these substances.
