成语典故翻译技巧(2006-04-29 17:52:00)

摘要:·一桶水摇不响,半桶水响叮当 有人照字面译成:
The full pot of water makes no sound; the half-empty pot of water is noisy.
老外听后,也许会感到困惑。他们有自己的说法:
A little knowledge (or learning) can be (or is) dangerous.(一知半解很危险)
或者说: Still water runs deep.(静水深不可测)
也可以说: He who knows the most says the least.(懂得越多的人,反而说得越少。)
至于“大智若愚”,通常可以这么说:
A truly wise person does not show off his (her) ability.(真正聪明的人,是不会显要自己的能力) ·水落石出 有人照字直译为:As the water level sinks,the stones are exposed.
这样说,恐怕老外还是听不懂。他们的说法是:
All secrets may eventually come to light. (所有祕密最后总会曝光。)
也可以说: Eventually, every secret will be disclosed. ·这山望到那山高 有人译成:
The apples on the other side of the wall are the sweetest.(意思是:墙那边的苹果最甜)
当然,如要译成: If you stand on a mountain, you feel the distant mountain seems higher than yours. 老外也勉强能接受。
而他们的最习惯说法是:
The grass always looks greener on the other side.(另一边的草,看来总是绿些。) ·烈火炼真金,患难见真情 有人译成:Fire is the test of gold;adversity is the test of friendship.
这句译文,虽然很好,老外也能了解,但是他们还......
