“辛苦了”、“混”、“撒娇"......

简单、常用的中文词,却很难找到贴切的英语翻译

今天,我们就说说这些最难用英语表达的中文词!

一、辛苦了

How do you say 辛苦了 in English?

“辛苦了“英语就很难表达

可能有对应的说法

但没有完全符合的

不能百分百把情绪和意思传递出去

这是用来表达认可和感谢的

“辛苦了”英语可以这么说

Thank you, you did a good job/job well done!

谢谢,你做的很棒!(比较多用于上级对下属)

Thanks for your hard work.

谢谢你辛勤的工作。

When you say this, you acknowledge that it might not have been very easy: 你这样说,代表你觉得那个工作比较辛苦、不容易

But sometimes I feel saying "辛苦了" is a bit of an exaggeration: 但是我有时候觉得说“辛苦了”有点夸张,因为并没有很辛苦

But it"s a way of showing appreciation and respect in Chinese culture: 但是这是中国文化里表达感谢和尊重的方式

二、人情

How would you translate that? 这个怎么翻译啊?

When you check the dictonary, you might find "human feelings": 查字典,字典会告诉你“human feelings"

Some foreigners might call it 关系, which has entered the English vocabulary: 有些外国人会用“关系”,这个词现在已经进入英语了

I don"t think there"s a one word equivalent of "人情” in English: 我觉得英语里没有“人情”

“人情” is such an important aspect of Chinese society: 人情在中国社会是很重要的组成部分

It"s untranslatable: 这个词翻译不了

三、得瑟

Spencer, I noticed you like to use "得瑟“ a lot: Spencer, 我发现你最近很爱说“得瑟”

How would you translate that in English? 这个英语怎么翻译?

These are words that you won"t be able to find in a dictionary, never mind textbooks:

Arrogant: 傲慢

Pretentious: 装

Full of
themselves/himself/herself: 得瑟、自我感觉良好

四、混

vs

"混" is also very hard to translate: “混”也很难翻译

It has both negative and positive connotations: 它既可以是褒义,又可以是贬义

To waste time, muddle through, mucking around: 混日子

You"re doing well: 你混得不错【随时随“事”学英语】结合热点学英语,结合生活学英语……更多相关内容,关注微信公众号“烤鸭学堂”:ielts_school

六、作、嗲、撒娇

I"ve got a bunch of related ones that are hard to translate: 我有一串相关的难翻译的词

Being cutesy, girly: 撒娇

The dictionary defines it as "coquettish", but we don"t really use that word: 字典会告诉你“嗲”是“coquettish”,但这个词日常不会用

A lot of things are represented by one character in Chinese, but need a few English words to translate completely: 中文很多时候只需要一个字,但英文要好几词才能翻译、解释

Even though they look similar, cutesy means 撒娇 and cute is more like 可爱: 虽然它们看上去很相像,“cutesy”更加撒娇,“cute”可能更可爱

Cutesy: 嗲

Feminine: 女性化

You got me: 我被问住了

High maintenance: 作,需要高度保养

What about?

七、素质

素质 is class.

You can say someone has no class to mean 素质差:你可以说一个人“have no class", 就是素质差的意思

八、讨厌

讨厌 is annoying

But when we say "讨厌", we often don"t mean it. It"s a way of 撒娇:但是很多时候说讨厌,不是真的觉得你annoying, 其实是在撒娇

I think in English, we"d express a lot of things with the tone of voice: 我觉得英语里,会更多用语气来传递意思上的差别

这些说法很简单,但是包含了很深的文化概念~
