Chinese to English: 差不多先生传 (胡适) Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - Chinese 差不多先生的相貌和你和我都差不多。他有一双眼睛，但看得不很清楚；有两只耳朵，但听得不很分明；有鼻子和嘴，但他对于气味和口味都不很讲究。他的脑子也不小，但他的记性却不很精明，他的思想也不很细密。
Translation - English Mr. Almost’s appearance, yours, and mine are about the same. He has two eyes, but they don’t see very clearly; he has two ears, but they don’t hear very distinctly; he has a nose and mouth, but they don’t smell and taste exquisitely. His brain is not small, however his memory is not very astute; also his thinking is not very meticulous.
Chinese to English: 髻 (琦君) Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - Chinese 我长大出外读书以后，寒暑假回家，偶然给母亲梳头，头发捏在手心，总觉得愈来愈少。想起幼年时，每年七月初七看母亲乌亮的柔发飘在两肩，她脸上快乐的神情，心里不禁一阵阵酸楚。母亲见我回来，愁苦的脸上却不时展开笑容。无论如何，母女相依的时光总是最最幸福的。
Translation - English After I grew up and went away for school, during summer and winter vacation I returned home, occasionally doing mothers hair, kneading her hair in the palm of my hand and feeling that there is less and less. Thinking about my youth, seeing mothers black, shiny and soft hair floating on her shoulders every year on the seventh of July, the happy expression on her face, in my heart I can’t help but feel a pang of sorrow and grief. When mother sees me come home, the expression on her face is not one of anxiety and distress but frequently a smiling expression. No matter what, our mother-daughter time is always the happiest.
