II. Translate the underlined part of the following passage into Chinese. (20 points)

Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) is one of the best known and most influential American novelist and short-story writers. In all his life, Hemingway was fascinated by war—in World War I,he worked for the Red Cross on the Italian Front, in the Spanish Civil War and World War II,he served as a war reporter. His experiences and observations provided him with materials and backgrounds for many of his best works, in which he concerned himself with man’s courage in facing strong physical forces.

“Grace under pressure” was Hemingway’s definition of courage.In his view, life is painful and complex. The only way to survive is to face what comes with honor, dignity, strength, knowledge and endurance. Hemingway’s overall message, as established in The Old Man and the Sea(1952), his nearly flawless short novel which gained him the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 and the Nobel Prize in 1954,is that although life is a lonely, losing battle, it is a struggle that a man can dominate in such a way that his loss has dignity and is itself a victory.


III. Translate the following passage into Chinese.(20 points )

There is relatively little literature available on the impacts of extreme climate events on livestock.Nevertheless, storms, blizzards and droughts are an important concern for livestock operations. In addition to the direct effects on animals, storms may result in power outages that can devastate farms that are heavily dependent upon electricity for daily operations. This was exemplified by the 1998 ice storm in eastern Ontario and southern Quebec, when the lack of power left many dairy farms unable to use their milking machines. This threatened the health of the cows (due to potential mastitis) and caused significant revenue losses. Milk revenue was also lost through the inability to store the milk at the proper temperature. Furthermore, the lack of electricity made it difficult to provide adequate barn ventilation and heating, thereby making the animals more susceptible to illness.(选自 impact of climatic changes mtizt.com注)

V. Translate the following from English to Chinese.(20)

As elsewhere, Castrol has adopted a premium pricing strategy in Vietnam, which is consistent with the company’s attempt to build a global brand image of high quality. Castrol oil costs about US$1.5 per liter in Vietnam, about three times as much as the price of cheaper oil imported from Taiwan and Thailand. Despite the high price of its product, Castrol claims it is gaining share in Vietnam as its branding strategy wins converts. Castrol has had to tailor its distribution strategy to Vietnam ’ s unique conditions. In most countries where it operates, Castrol divides the country into regions and has a single distributor in each region. (选自 Case study: Castrol Oil in Vietnam 翻译硕士真题网注)

VI. Translate the following from Chinese to English.(20)

但出人意料的是,太平洋热带洋面水温自五月中旬至六月中旬一个月内下降了 7.8摄氏度使海水温度比常年同期低2-3摄氏度。这就是所谓的拉尼娜现象。她 的甚至更迅速的形成使科学家们感到惊讶不已。

“较冷的热带海洋使大气从海洋中吸起的热量低于常年,”曹冀平解释说,“其 结果是大气环流也出现异常,并造成全球气候异常的现象。”

拉尼娜对全球气候的影响与厄尔尼诺的影响相反,特别是在特带地区更是如 此。

在维度较高的地区,厄尔尼诺和拉尼娜是影响气候的诸多因素之一,但是他们 的影响效果在冬季看得最为清楚。
