Iris Wu 寫:I agreed, so I said "It makes sense to use "waive"."

I just had a question, what if the Chinese is "若中獎者於抽獎唱名三次後仍不在現場 , 則被取消得獎權利", how would you translate it?
(The same senario, 若中獎者於抽獎唱名三次後仍不在現場 becomes a penalty.)


Iris

Sorry, I didn't read your question carefully, 害你把問題再寫一次

If the Chinese is "則被取消得獎權利" , yeah, I think to translate it to "the right to the prize will be forfeited" should be fine

The tone of "will be forfeited" is stronger than "a waiver", so it is more polite to use "waiver"

I don't know it is Chinese to English or English to Chinese, but I believe for such a big and multinational company like Microsoft, the translation must be very formal and trustworthy

由"中翻英"和由"英翻中"的結果是可以很不一樣的要我說..



總之, 翻譯真的不要差太多, 不要讓人誤解, 阿意思有到就好了啦啦啦~ :lol:

A simple sentence is possible.

The winner must be present within three calls of his/her name to receive the prize.
To receive the prize, the winner must be present within three calls of his/her name.
(Any difference?)

(In the examples above, "call" can be replaced by "announcemnet and "present", "at the scene" .)
