Are you speaking England 你說英語很英格蘭

很多人以為自己懂得幾個英文字母或詞彙就是等於懂英文,或者掌握了英文。這些破爛英語人士自視甚高,持著自己一口破爛英語就胡亂指責中港台日韓的民眾不懂英文。殊不知自己只不過是將華語/粵語/閩南語的表達方式與句型逐個套上英文字。 這個表達方式當然可笑,更可笑的是,很多人以為靠破爛英文可以為小孩的英文程度打好基礎。孩子多認識幾個英文單字倒是可以,打好基礎就說不上了。英語為母語的社會如英美加紐澳,閣下可曾見過人家需要說破爛英語給小朋友建立語文基礎?...

Two laptops ready for work 兩台筆電好辦事

本週出遠門窩在小城民宿專心工作免得被大城市塵囂干擾,原本想帶兩台筆電出門,但是顧及到重量,結果只帶一台華碩電腦出門。這台華碩電腦用了三年,光碟機、原鍵盤換過一次,原本好好地,這次變成音響系統出問題。 每次打開電腦,聲音一欄總是顯示沒有音響器具,拿給維修商店看,他們說是晶片組的問題,需時七個工作日維修,要價300馬幣左右。我必須趕工作,於是沒有馬上修理,畢竟沒有另一台後備電腦在手邊。現在新的華碩筆電只賣1,299馬幣,看了很難不心動。但是每一台電腦都有自己的問題,現在買新電腦,兩三年之內也會遇上那台電腦的問題。...

Good sleep and quality work 睡眠與工作質素

現代人汲汲營營,很多人以短時間睡眠、長時間工作為榮。其實這個模式只能維持兩三天,再長一些就會影響生活品質。 多年的翻譯與謄寫經驗告訴我,睡得好確實可以確保工作質素。若是睡得不好,在迷糊的思維之中,我無法想出最合適的英文字以表達華語或粵語詞彙的意義。缺乏睡眠的時候,我有時候連英文拼字都會寫錯。 翻譯行業分秒必爭,客戶常常要求很短時間之內給他們一個報價。我若頭腦清晰,我給一個好的報價,有利於自己的生意,同時讓客戶付錢也開開心心。...

Why do you need NAATI-certified translation service? NAATI認證譯者之作用

在澳洲若要將一份中文文件翻譯成有效力的英文文件,則一定要由澳洲國家翻譯認證局 (NAATI) 譯者翻譯。認證譯者翻譯過文件之後,在譯入語文件上蓋上認證譯者的蓋章,方為有效力的文件。 若閣下的文件沒有認證譯者的蓋章,在澳洲則被視為沒有效力﹑不為官方或私人機構所接受的文件。 除了認證文件翻譯,NAATI認證資格亦有其他作用。譬如,當一位澳洲律師需要將華語或粵語錄音檔案謄寫成英文文件呈交予法院,NAATI認證的譯者自然是律師樓的最佳人選。...
