2018年12月英语四六级考试已排上日程了,文都四六级小编不由的推测,本次六级翻译话题多偏向社会经济、文化、日常知识等方面,建议大家要提前储备一些常考话题材料。来看看下面的英语六级翻译考试练习:年糕。
请将下面这段话翻译成英文:
年糕(Chinese New Year Cake)是中国人的传统食品,距今已有两千年的历史。早期被用来祭奠灶神(the Kitchen God),其后渐渐成为一种春节特色食品。年糕主要是用糯米粉(glutinous rice flour)制作而成,有黄、白两色,象征金、银。在汉语中,“粘”与“年”同音,而“糕”与“高”同音,所以年糕寓意人们的生活水平一年比一年提高。年糕营养丰富,不但吃起来香甜可口,而且还有健身祛病的作用。中国地域广、各地的风俗习惯不同,因而年糕的种类也多种多样。
参考翻译:
Chinese New Year Cake is a traditional food for Chinese people with a history of 2,000 years. In early times, it was used as an offering to the Kitchen God and gradually evolved into a kind of food typical in the Spring Festival. Chinese New Year Cake is made of glutinous rice flour, with yellow or white as its color, symbolizing gold and silver. In Chinese, "sticky" is identical in sound to "year" and "cake" to "high", so Chinese New Year Cake also implies that people's standard of living would be improved year by year. Chinese New Year Cake, containing lots of nutrition, not only tastes sweet and delicious but also benefits people health and wards off diseases. China is vast in territory and its customs vary from place to place, thus the types of Chinese New Year Cake are also various.
