Mr. President,

Prince Philip and I are delighted to welcome you and Madame Peng to Buckingham Palace this evening.

Welcome sb. to (某个地方或者某个场合)

记住:英文中没有welcome sb. to do sth.,你的Chinglish歇歇吧,哈哈!

还有,还有,请注意:彭麻麻不是Mrs. Xi也不是Ms. Xi,而是突出姓氏,用Madame称呼,两性平等体现得淋漓尽致有木有?

 

Your visit to the United Kingdom marks a milestone in this unprecedented year of co-operation and friendship between the United Kingdom and China, as we celebrate the ties between our two countries and prepare to take them to ambitious new heights.

我经常提及的as好好看看它在女王演讲中的作用:给出事实背景!“celebrate”不是真正说要“庆祝”,是一种搭配而已,无需译出,后面的部分意思就是“我们两国关系发展良好,今后要将两国关系推向新的台阶、更高的水平、更上层楼”,“ambitious”是英文的修辞,不需要译出,记住:不要东施效颦哈,双语修辞本来就不是机械对等滴!

 

The United Kingdom and China have a warm and longstanding friendship.Prince Philip and I recall with great fondness our visit to China almost thirty years ago, where we were privileged to experience your country’s rich history and culture, including the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the Terracotta Warriors: all unforgettable memories of China’s ancient civilisation.

a warm and longstanding friendship”两国友谊/友好关系源远流长,注意形容词不要总是想着面面俱到!

recall with great fondness”表态判断放在后面,“30年前的中国之行给我们留下了美好的回忆”;

your countrys rich history and culture”,亲身领略了贵国历史文化的博大精深/深厚的历史文化底蕴!下次汉翻英词穷的时候一定要记得弱化降格,跟女王学习肯定没错!“rich history”这种搭配估计你没见过吧,那就开开眼吧,哈哈!

 

Yet it was China’s desire to shape a new future which captivated us the most. We were struck by the energy and enthusiasm with which China’s leaders were forging ahead with a new and ambitious future for the Chinese people; and I well recall our discussions with the late paramount leader Mr. Deng Xiaoping,who was foremost among these leaders in setting a clear direction for China with his policy of reform. It was also Mr. Deng’s visionary concept of One Country Two Systems which opened the way for the return of Hong Kong to Chinese sovereignty under the Sino-British Joint Declaration.

Chinas desire to shape a new future which captivated us the most”“不过最引人关注的/我们最感兴趣的是中国开创未来的热切愿望。”

We were struck by the energy and enthusiasm with which Chinas leaders were forging ahead with a new and ambitious future for the Chinese people;”舍弃一些中文里无法对照的形容词,从写作高度出发进行翻译就好了。“为了给中国人民缔造一个崭新、光明的未来,中国领导人殚精竭虑、热情高涨,深深打动了我们。”

the late paramount leader Mr. Deng Xiaoping, who was foremost among these leaders in setting a clear direction for China with his policy of reform.”回归中文常识背景,不要被英文束缚了手脚。“已故中国国家领导人邓小平提出了改革开放政策,为中国的发展指明了方向。”

 

Almost thirty years later, Mr Deng’s vision has borne remarkable fruit.Rapid economic growth and development has transformed the lives of people across China and lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty: a huge and historic achievement with far reaching positive effects on people’s lives.

transformed the lives of”大大提高了人们的生活水平、人们的生活大为改观;

 

I was delighted that my grandson Prince William was able to witness these changes during his first visit to China earlier this year. Like myself and Prince Philip, he visited not only your great cities of Beijing and Shanghai but also the beautiful province of Yunnan, and saw at first-hand the strong connections which bind our two countries together, be they in culture,education or business.

saw at first-hand the strong connections which bind our two countries together, be they in culture, education or business.”

“亲自见证了我们两国在文化、教育和商贸领域的密切关系。”动词处理注意隐藏起来啊,不然又会阻碍你的行文,不是吗?

 

Mr. President, the relationship between the United Kingdom and China is now truly a global partnership. We have much reason to celebrate the dynamic,growing economic relationship between our countries as well as our success in working together to address pressing international challenges.

We have much reason to celebrate the dynamic, growing economic relationship between our countries as well as our success in working together to address pressing international challenges.”我们两国经济关系充满活力、不断发展,在应对紧迫的国际问题/全球性挑战时开展了有效合作,这都值得庆贺。

 

We have, this year, marked the seventieth anniversary of the foundation of the United Nations. Today the world faces challenges which call for collaboration between the nations: conflict and terrorism; poverty and ill-health; conservation and climate change. As permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, Britain and China are stewards of the rules-based international system, and we have a responsibility to cooperate on these issues which have a direct bearing on the security and prosperity of all our peoples.

stewards of the rules-based international system”维护基于规则的国际体系;词性变化,千变万化增张力!

 

This global partnership is supported by an expanding network of links between the people of our two countries, which are essential in building mutual lunderstanding and friendship, while we welcome the increasing numbers of Chinese tourists, students and business visitors to the United Kingdom.

are essential in building mutual understanding and friendship”对增进相互理解、加深友谊至关重要;动词翻译也要从写作的高度出发!

welcome the increasing numbers of Chinese tourists, students and business visitors to the United Kingdom”再次体会welcome

 

Mr. President, your visit is a defining moment in this very special year for our bilateral relationship. I am confident that it will serve to highlight the sincerity and warmth of our friendship and to strengthen relations between our countries for many years to come.

a defining moment”重大时刻,具有重要意义;

will serve to highlight the sincerity and warmth of our friendship”省略动词,此访表明了两国之间真挚的友谊和热情。

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, I ask you to rise and drink a toast to the President and Madame Peng and to the people of China.
