乔布斯留给我们的十句精悍短评(英文原话)

                                                                   佳中

 

网上一些博客中都在转截乔布斯留给我们的十句精悍短评。我查了一下“Stove Jobs’ Quotes”,找到了史蒂文·乔布斯英文原话,现复制如下,译文是网上的原译文,我未作改动。中英文对照一下。发现译文有多处值得商榷,译得不够确切。第十句原话不全,没有找到。

 

 

1)“These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I’m not downplaying that.”

 

“这些技术可以使生活变得更轻松,可以让我们接触到方方面面的人。你可能有一个先天缺陷的孩子,但你能够与其他家长联系,获取他们的支持、医疗信息和最新的实验性药物。这些东西可以深刻地影响生活。”

 

 2)“I think it’s brought the world a lot closer together, and will continue to do that. There are downsides to everything; there are unintended consequences to everything. The most corrosive piece of technology that I’ve ever seen is called television — but then, again, television, at its best, is magnificent.”

 

“我认为它使得世界的联系更紧密,并会继续这样做。一切事物都有不好的一面和众多意想不到的后果。我见过的最具腐蚀性的技术被称为电视。不过,话又说回来,处于最佳状态下的电视依然蔚为壮观。”

 

 3)“We think the Mac will sell zillions, but we didn’t build the Mac for anybody else. We built it for ourselves. We were the group of people who were going to judge whether it was great or not. We weren’t going to go out and do market research. We just wanted to build the best thing we could build.”

 

“我们认为,Mac系列电脑卖出不计其数,但我们没有使得其他任何人都有适合他们自己的Mac。我们只为自己建造。我们自己去判断它是否是伟大的。我们不会走出去做市场调研。我们只是想做自己认为的最好事情。”

 

 4) When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.”

 

“当你是一个木匠在做一个美丽的抽屉时,你不打算使用胶合板,即使它靠墙没有人会看到它,但你会知道它的存在,所以你要使用一个美丽的木头。为了你晚上的睡眠质量,你得保持并遵守自己的美学原则。”

 

 5) “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.

 

“创意只是将事物连接起来。当你问创意人他们是如何做到的,他们可能会觉得有点内疚,因为他们并没有真正做到这一点,他们只是看到了一些东西。这是因为他们能够联系已有的经验和合成新的东西。而他们之所以能够做到这一点,因为他们已经有更多的经验,或者他们有比其他人更多的经验而已。”

 

 6) “That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

 

“这一直是我的咒语之一,集中和简单。简单可以比复杂更难:你必须努力工作,让你的思维简单干净。一旦简单到达一个思维的顶峰,你甚至可以移山。”

 

 7) “It will go down in history as a turning point for the music industry. This is landmark stuff. I can’t overestimate it!

 

“这将是音乐产业的一个转折点,这是具有里程碑意义的东西!”

 

8) “Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything. … One is very fortunate if you get to work on just one of these in your career. Apple’s been very fortunate it’s been able to introduce a few of these into the world.”

 

“每一次革命性的产品都将改变一切……如果你的职业生涯中有过其中一次,那将是非常幸运的事情。苹果公司非常幸运,能够将其中一些产品引入世界。”

 

 

9) “You know, my main reaction to this money thing is that it’s humorous, all the attention to it, because it’s hardly the most insightful or valuable thing that’s happened to me.”

 

“你知道,我对钱的主要反应是很幽默的,我几乎不怎么关注这个方面,因为它对我来说是最不具有深度或有价值的事情。

 

10) “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”

 

“在墓碑上一定要这样写“做一个最有钱的人对我意义不大,我所关心在意的是每天晚“每一次革命性的产品都将改变一切……如果你的职业生涯中有过其中一次,那将是非常幸运的事情。苹果公司非常幸运,能够将其中一些产品引入世界。”
