《海南纪行》翻译研究(九)

朋友又找出7个问题句子,毫厘之间,有道理存焉,于细微处见功夫。请大家讨论指正。

1. Besides cultivating the soil, many of the people are more or less concerned in dealing with the Les, as agents for the larger houses, or as independent traders in a small way. (原译文:许多人除了种地,还时常跟黎人打交道,给大户人家做掮客,或者成为做小买卖的商贩。)//许多人除了种地,还或多或少与黎人做生意,或是为大商号作掮客,或是自己单独做小买卖。

2. Five miles in any direction, except north, the way we came, leads one into the midst of the Aborigines. (原译文:除了我们过来的北面方向,往任何方向走上五英里,都有路通向土著人中间。)//除了我们过来的北方,向任何一个方向走五英里就进入到原住民中间。

3. The most conspicuous object near is the great hill we have been watching on our way hither. Four or five miles west it rises in a solid dome-like shape, more than 3,000 feet above the plain. (原译文:近处最醒目的是我们一路走来时一直遥望的大山,它在西边四、五英里远的地方,像穹庐般在平原上拔地而起,有三千多英尺高。//后一句:西边是五英里处它拔地而起,形状像一个坚实的圆顶。

4. To the south it presents a great precipice of dark-coloured rock, over which water, sometimes in streams, and again trickling from crevices in the rock, pours down glistening in a broad sheet as the sun falls upon it.(原译文:山南边有一座大峭壁,岩石呈黑色,涓涓细流从石缝中流出,变成溪流倾泻而下,在阳光下熠熠闪光,如同一块宽布幔。)//山的南边有一座巨大的黑色岩石构成的悬崖,水从上面倾泻而下,时而像溪流,时而又从岩石的缝隙里滴落,阳光落在如练的宽阔水幕上,熠熠生辉。

5. It is said that now, being in very reduced circumstances, these people are ready to grant permission to any one who will undertake the work of mining. (原译文:但是现在,据说这些人因为生活极其贫困,只要有人愿意采矿,无论是谁他们都会同意。)//但据说现在由于由富返贫极为显著,只要有人愿意采矿,无论是谁他们都会同意。

6. Standing on the borders of this country, we saw the lofty ramparts of their mountain homes, and understood to some extent the nature of the defence which the physical features of the land have provided, (原译文:站在黎区边境上,看到山中黎寨高耸的屏障,我们对这种地势特征赋予的天然防御性质有了几分了解)//站在黎区边境上,我们看到高耸的黎寨防御墙,对这块土的有外在特性具有的防御本性有了一点理解。

7. The women were all tattooed with blue stripes over their cheeks, foreheads, chins, hands, arms, legs, and partially on the breast and back. (原译文:女人们的脸颊、前额、下巴、手臂和腿上,全都纹有蓝色条纹,前胸和后背也有一部分)//女人们的脸颊、前额、下巴、手臂和腿上,全都纹有蓝色条纹的纹身,前胸和后背也有一部分。
