北京天译时代英语翻译公司整理了“中文英文神相似的表达(2)"的翻译知识,希望对以后的翻译工作有所帮助,想获悉更多翻译知识可以持续关注.
  可以记成“(某种想法)在脑海中划过”。例如:
  It never crossed my mind that she might lose (= I was sure that she would win)。
  You reap what you sow。
  You have to deal with the bad effects or results of something that you originally started。
  这句saying跟我们的“种瓜得瓜,种豆得豆”很像哦。
  Two heads are better than one。
  Used to say that two people can achieve more than one person working alone。
  “人多力量大”,好吧,可以这么理解。
  A thick head
  A physical condition in which your head is painful or you cannot think clearly as a result of an illness or of drinking too much alcohol。
  我们平时会说“脑袋很沉”,英文里没有用heavy,用的是thick。例如:
  You’re going to have a thick head in the morning if you drink too much beer!
  I have feelings for you。
  这句不用解释了吧,如果我们说I still have feelings for him. 就是说I still feel attracted to her in a romantic way。
  Rack your brain(s)
  To think very hard or for a long time about something。
  “绞尽脑汁”就翻译成这个。例如:
  She racked her brains, trying to remember exactly what she had said。
  Have your eye on something。
  To be thinking about buying something。
  就是“看上… 想买”。
  Take the weight off your feet
  To sit down and rest, especially when you are tired。
  我们的“歇歇脚”,以后用英文就这么说。例如:
  Come and sit down and take the weight off your feet for a while。
  Be engraved on/ in your heart, memory, mind, etc。
  To be something that you will never forget because it affected you so strongly。
  深深的印在心里或者记忆力。例如:
  The date of the accident remains engraved on my mind。
  Pave the way (for somebody/ something)
  To create a situation in which somebody will be able to do something or something can happen。
  直译就是“为…铺路”。(OK,家长[微博]不总是为孩子铺路的么……)例如:
  This decision paved the way for changes in employment rights for women。
  Broken home
  A family in which the parents are divorced or separated。
  直译“破碎的家庭”。例如:
  She comes from a broken home。
  BTW,broken也可以形容说的不是很溜的非母语(spoken slowly and with a lot of mistakes; not fluent),可以记成“支离破碎的,断断续续的,蹩脚的”,例如:
  I try to explain in my broken English。
  中英文里极其神似的表达远不止这些,大家平时要善于积累,善于观察哦!
