英语翻译练习之男孩成百万富翁 ——外语教育网

  Few could truly claim that teens are, on the whole, terribly useful.
  很少有人能断言,年仅十几岁的少年能大获成功。
  It helps if you have a strong admiration for Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
  你仰慕苹果CEO史蒂夫·乔布斯,那么故事会使你深受启发。
  According to the Daily Mail, Christian Owens, a 16-year-old from Corby in the United Kingdom, happened to be moved by the revolutionary chief executive. So, at the age of 14, he created a company called Mac Bundle Box, a neat little way for people to save money on various Mac OS X apps.
  英国科尔比市16岁的男孩克里斯蒂安·欧文斯,正是受了这位大胆创新的CEO启发。在14岁时,他创办了名为“Mac Bundle Box”的公司,打包低价出售苹果公司产品的应用软件。
  Not only was Owens a teen who enjoyed saving his customers money, he even donated some of his profits to charity. And still he made 700,000 British pounds. Which feels like a million dollars.
  欧文斯不单只是喜欢为顾客省钱的少年,他甚至还将公司的一利润捐给慈善机构。除此之外他还挣到了70万英镑,于100万美金。
  Owens does look a little on the nerdy side, with happily unruly curly hair and glasses that somehow reminded me of the cult classic “Joe 90” in which a 9-year-old becomes a special agent.
  看上去欧文斯确实有点书生气,一头肆意杂乱无章的卷发,一副眼镜;不知为何,他的形象让我想起经典剧集《小飞谍》中那个9岁的小特工。
  His words to the Mail, though, sound as if they came from an old man who has seen it all: “I think everyone has business sense in them, they just need to gain experience and be determined to make it.”
  但他在接受采访时的一番话,听上去却老气横秋:“我认为每个人都有商业头脑,只需要积累经验并下定决心。”
  Though he admires Apple`s magical revolution, Owens isn`t quite so convinced that magic truly has any part of business success. “There is no magical formula to business, it takes hard work, determination and the drive to do something great,” he told the Mail.
  欣赏苹果公司那些不可思议的创新,但欧文斯并不相信商业真的有什么制胜法宝。他在采访时表示:“商业并无神奇公式,努力、决心和动力才是成就非凡的不二法门。”
  His determination is so great that he has already created a new company, Branchr, a pay-per-click advertising company that distributes more than 300 million ads every month all over the Web.
  显然他的决心无比坚定,他又开设了一家名为“Branchr”的付费点击广告公司,该公司每月在各大小网站上发布超过3亿次的广告。
  Now one can argue about whether the Web really needs more than 300 million ads strewn all over its pristine pages. But one can surely only admire the fact that Branchr seems not only to be doing well, but also to have already acquired another company, Atomplan.
  人们会发问到,该网站需要铺满3亿份广告。但令人赞叹的是,事实上“Branchr”运营得很不错,而且已将另一家公司“Atomplan”收至麾下。
  And between Mac Bundle Box and Branchr he`s made around 1.2 million British pounds, which is close to $2 million.
  “Mac Bundle Box”和“Branchr”这两个公司,他净赚120万英镑,约合近200万美金。
  Owens, who already employs eight people of legal drinking age, told the Mail: “I don`t know where I will be in 10 years time but I won`t leave Branchr until it has reached 100 million pounds.”
  欧文斯手下有8名员工,全部成年人,他表示:“我不知道10年以后我身在何方,但我不会离开‘Branchr’公司,除非市值1亿英镑。”
