技术文章翻译注意

可能一直好像比较习惯于在技术文章中英文表达,看完看懂就过了,也可能也是因为自己学英语的路子有点野,最近在为一个参加一个翻译社区时,被审核出了不少问题。归档下,作为一个checklist,持续维护。以后翻译文章时候避免。

1. 错别字,不通顺等低级错误

这种自己仔细的多读几遍是可以解决的。但是在这个快节奏的时代,尤其是写代码的双手,好像在技术博客或论坛中想找出没有错别字的文章还是挺难的,但是不影响大家交流。但是一篇比较正式发表出来的文章,作者还是要保证不要出现这些小错误。

2. 不定冠词

英语中很多不定冠词是可以不翻译的,译成“一个”反而会破坏语句的流畅度。大部分时候是注意到了,但是到底那些时候这个“一个”不要翻译出来,还是挺需要推敲的。个人认为大多数时候是不用的。

GRE ARGUMENT 70

TOPIC: ARGUMENT70 - Studies show that in 70 percent of traffic accidents, at least one driver involved is less than 10 miles from home when the accident occurs.

Thus, the places where people feel safest are the places w[......]
