胡敏读故事记托福词汇 第178期:突出的工程师 The projecting engineer

中英对照

 

178 The projecting engineer

178 突出的工程师

There was a promising young engineer who was proficient in the use of the projector.

有一位很有前途的年轻工程师能够非常熟练地使用放映机。

The primary use of his projector was to proliferate, promote, and promulgate his engineering projects.

他使用放映机的主要目的是扩散、促进以及传播他的工程计划。

As a projectionist, his proficiency was profound.

作为一个幻灯放映员,在业务方面他有很深的造诣。

He could use profiles, prolonged figures, projecting figures, and make them all very pronounced.

他可以熟练使用侧面形象、加长轮廓以及突出轮廓,还可以同时使这些轮廓非常显著。

There was a progression to his projections.

他的放映是有先后次序的。

He would begin with a profuse use of slides and progress to a progressive use of colors and shapes.

首先他会使用很多幻灯片,然后再逐步发展到进一步使用各种颜色和形状。

He would also use multiple projectors with which he would project images on several walls simultaneously.

他也使用多台放映机在多面墙上同时放映。

He could also create a very dramatic effect by sequencing the projections around the room.

另外,他还在房间内轮次使用放映机以取得非常戏剧化的效果。

He would never include anything prohibitive, such as pornography, as it would result in his boss prohibiting him from using the projector again.

他放映的东西中从来不包括诸如色情之类的任何明令禁止的内容,因为一旦这样做,老板肯定将会禁止他再使用放映机。

The engineering staff at his company enjoyed these performances and looked forward to every staff meeting.

工程师所在的公司员工们都非常喜欢他所放映的东西,因此也都热切企盼着每次员工聚会。

They would cancel appointments, break luncheon dates, forego racquet ball games anything just to attend a performance.

如果有放映,他们将会取消约会,变更午餐时间,放弃参加壁球赛…,做好一切准备来观看。

The only problem was that he was prone to prolonging the meetings.

惟一的问题是那位工程师总是倾向于拖长放映时间。

Once he gave a performance that lasted for nearly two hours.

一次他放了几乎整整两个小时。

His workmates were completely enthralled, and none of them complained.

但他的同事们都被深深迷住了,没有一个人抱怨。

However, since this projector performance interfered with his workmates'work, his superiors agreed to limit his shows to one hour.

然而,放映时间太长终究会干扰工作,所以上级同意他把放映时间限于一个小时。

Therefore, he was often urged by his boss to be prompt with its use.

这样一来,老板总是催促他准时完成放映。

The engineer was prominent in his field, and it was largely due to his prolific use of the projector.

这位工程师在他的领域出类拔萃,很大原因是由于他使用放映机的手法非常丰富。
