今天在公众号“高斋翻硕”给大家分享第14届韩素音翻译大赛汉译英原文和官方参考译文,以及大概的单词讲解。

原文

我只是清华几万校友中的一个,现已不在清华工作,然而一说起这所学校,至今仍像年轻时候一样兴奋,话也像说不完似的。清华吸引人的究竟是什么?它有很好的校园,设备,但这些别校也有;它的历史也不很长,世界大学中,成立已几百年的有的是;想来想去,还是由于清华的人,或者说清华人和中国历史的特殊关联。

官方参考译文

I am just one of the thousands of alumni of Tsinghua University, and although I am no longer working there, every time Tsinghua is mentioned, I would get as excited aswhen I was young, and can't seem to stop talking about it. What is it that makes Tsinghua so attractive? Its beautiful campus? Its advanced facilities? But all these are not lacking in other universities. Or its long history? But a good many universities in the world even boast histories of several hundred years. Having thought it over and over again, I come to the conclusion that it is the people of Tsinghua, or rather, the special relationship between its people and Chinese history, that makes it so attractive.

单词讲解

第一句:我只是清华几万校友中的一个,现已不在清华工作,然而一说起这所学校,至今仍像年轻时候一样兴奋,话也像说不完似的。

I am just one of the thousands of alumni of Tsinghua University, and although I am no longer working there, every time Tsinghua is mentioned, I would get as excited as when I was young, and can't seem to stop talking about it.

1. Alumni [əˈlʌmnaɪ] (统称)校友,毕业生,是alumnus [əˈlʌmnəs]的复数,如经济学人例句:

第三句后半部分:想来想去,还是由于清华的人,或者说清华人和中国历史的特殊关联。

Having thought it over and over again, I come to the conclusion that it is the people of Tsinghua, or rather, the special relationship between its people and Chinese history, that makes it so attractive.
