2018年11月CATTI二级笔译实务真题(英译汉)

English-ChineseTranslation

Translate the following two passages into Chinese.

Passage 1

New drone footage gives a glimpse of the damage that parts of Hawaii's Big Island sustained in the wake of volcanic explosions in recent days.

Smoke can be seen billowing off the lava as it creeps down roads and through wooded areas toward homes.

Fires are visible with terrifying streams of brightness breaking through the surrounding areas of black.

After a day of relative calm, Kilauea roared back in full force on Sunday, spewing lava 3,00 feet in the air, encroaching on a half mile of new ground and bringing the total number of destroyed structures to 35.

There have been 1,800 residents evacuated from their homes in the Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens neighborhoods where cracks have been opening and spilling lava.

In evacuated areas with relatively low sulfur dioxide levels, residents were allowed to return home for a few hours to collect belongings on Sunday and Monday. Officials said those residents -- a little more than half of the evacuees -- were allowed to return briefly, and Magno said they would continue to allow residents in if it could be done safely.

"Things got pretty active [Saturday morning]," an official said at a Saturday press conference. "The eight volcanoes were pretty active, to the point where lava was spewing and the flow started spreading so we got additional damage out there. I'm not sure what the count is, but we thought it was just continue to go. Fortunately, seismicity has laid down and the vents have gone quiet now." By LearnAndRecord

But officials had cautioned that while the lava flow was quiet, it wouldn't be for long. "More volcanoes could open up, the existing ones could get active again. There's a lot of lava or magma under the ground so eventually it's going to come up."

The island was also rocked by a 6.9-magnitude earthquake on Friday, which caused landslides near the coast, but minimal structural damage. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) said Sunday the island had experienced more than 500 earthquakes -- 13 with a magnitude greater than 4.0 -- in the 24 hours following the 6.9-magnitude quake.

The concern for residents continues to be the lava and gas emitted from vents, though. "This is lava, that is definitely destroying people's homes -- we don't have an exact count -- but it is a devastating situation and it's going to be everyday that it goes on," Hawaii County Managing Director Wil Okabe said Saturday. "Mother nature, there's no way we could've predicted this."

注:原文节选自「ABC NEWS」:Lava flow intensifies in Hawaii eruptions, spews 200 feet in air (May 8, 2018)及 Drone footage gives terrifying glimpse of Hawaiian volcano damage(May 7, 2018),较真题略有删改。

Passage 2

Just as in America, in Britain too, the story told by official statistics does not always match people's experience. That is especially true in places like Newcastle, a former shipbuilding city, which lost out to competition from Asia in the 1970s and has seen living standards stagnate ever since. The U.S. economy, we are told, is booming. In the past two quarters, gross domestic product has risen by more than 3%, the stock market is soaring and unemployment is down to a 17-year low of 4.1%. Many people, though, don't feel that upside.

The perception gap is huge. Unemployment, more broadly measured, is higher than the headline number suggests because many people have simply given up looking for work or are working in part-time jobs when they want a full-time job. One of the prime faults of GDP is that it deals in averages and aggregates. Aggregates hide the nuances of inequality. And averages don't tell us very much at all.

Barring a few recessions, the U.S. economy has been on a near relentless upward path since the 1950s. Yet according to a Pew Research Center report, the average hourly wage for nonmanagement private-sector work was $20.67 in 2014, a measly $1.49 higher than in 1964, adjusted for inflation. By LearnAndRecord

Studies suggest that people care more about relative than absolute wealth. If that is true, then as a minority have become richer, the majority have grown more miserable. In a famous experiment carried out at Emory University, two capuchin monkeys were put side by side and given cucumbers as a reward for performing a task. When one of the monkeys was given better-tasting grapes instead, the monkey receiving cucumbers became distraught, flinging its now despised reward at its trainer.

The problems with using GDP as a barometer go beyond masking inequality. Invented in the U.S. in the 1930s, the figure is a child of the manufacturing age – good at measuring physical production but not the services that dominate modern economies. How would GDP measure the quality of mental-health care or the availability of day-care centers and parks in your area?

Even the Belarusian economist who practically invented GDP, had doubts about his creation. He did not like the fact that it counted armaments and financial speculation as positive outputs. Above all, he said, GDP should never be confused with well-being. That suggests we need to find different ways of measuring our success. For the most part, we have become enraptured with a single measure that offers only limited information.

2018年11月CATTI二级笔译实务真题(汉译英)

Chinese-English Translation

Translate the following two passages into English.

Passage 1

互联网是一个社会信息大平台,亿万网民在上面获得信息、交流信息,这会对他们的求知途径、思维方式、价值观念产生重要影响,特别是会对他们(、)对国家、对社会、对工作、对人生的看法产生重要影响。网民来自老百姓,老百姓上了网,民意也就上了网。各级党政机关和领导干部要学会通过网络与公众保持联系(走群众路线),经常上网(,)看看,聊聊天、发发声,了解群众所思所愿,收集好想法好建议,积极回应网民关切、解疑释惑。

网民大多数是普通群众,来自各行各业(四面八方),各自经历不同,观点和想法肯定是五花八门的,不能要求他们对所有问题都看得那么准、说得那么对。要多一些包容和耐心,对建设性意见要及时吸纳,对困难(的人)要及时帮助,对不了解情况的要及时宣介,对模糊认识要及时廓清,对怨气怨言要及时化解,对错误看法要及时引导和纠正。

注:原文节选自:2016年4月19日在网络安全和信息化工作座谈会上的讲话。

其中真题略有删改,如上文的两处顿号(、)和逗号(,)均为真题中所增加。

Passage 2

当今,世界各国的实力较量涉及诸多因素,其中最重要的一个要素是市场规模。哪个国家的市场大,对其他国家的吸引力就越大,也越容易处于领先地位。中国有14亿人口,这就决定了它拥有世界上最大的消费市场。经济学家都认为,过去这些年,中国市场发展的速度是世界上最快的。

连续九年,中国是世界上最大的汽车市场。2016年,美国销售了1,700万辆汽车,同年中国则销售了2400万辆。其中在中国的美国合资公司销售的汽车占比很大。中国还是世界上最大的智能手机市场,也是最大的服装、电商、国内旅游和农产品市场。中国市场展现了惊人的发展潜力。在中国,中产和富裕阶层人士迅速增长,年轻人有了全新的消费习惯,线上线下销售渠道覆盖了全国各地。随着医疗、养老产业不断发展,还将进一步提升中国人的消费能力。
