请帮我看看我翻译的是否正确,谢谢啦! Hi, um…, I really hope you can help me. 你好...我真的很希望你可以帮助我。 That’s why I’m here. What can I do for you? 那是我的职责。我能为你做些什么? I’m supposed to do a literature review for my psychology course, but um… having a hard time finding articles. I don’t even know where to start looking. 我想写一篇心理学课程方面的论文,但是...我在找素材是遇到了困难。我甚至不知道应该从那里开始找资料 。 You said this is for your psychology course, right? So your focus is on … 你说这是为你的心理学课程所准备的,那么你的文章中心是? Dream Interpretation. 梦的解析。 Well, you have a focus, so that’s already a good start. Hmmm… well, there’re a few things… oh wait… have you checked to see if your professor put any material for you to look at on reserve? 好,你现在有了一个题目,这是一个好的开始...这里有几件事情...哦,稍等...你检查了你的教授布置的一些让你保存的资料吗? Aha, that’s one thing I did know to do. I just copied an article, but I still need three more on my topic from three different journals. 那是我第一件知道要做的事,我拷贝了一份资料,但是我仍然需要至少三份不同期刊上有我的主题的资料。 Let’s get you going on looking for those then. We have printed versions of twenty or so psychology journals in the Reference Section. These are the ones published within the last year. Then I think about it… there’s a journal named Sleep and Dream. 让我们去寻找那些资料。在参考书区我们有大约20个版本的心理学书籍。那里有一部分书在去年出版。我想想...这里有一份报纸的名字叫做《睡觉与做梦》 Oh, yeah, the article I just copied is from that journal, so I’ve got to look at other sources. 好吧,这份我会从拿分报纸里拷贝资料,然后我要去看看它们的来源。 Ok, actually, most of our materials are available electronically now. You can access psychology databases or electronic journals and articles through the library’s computers, and if you want to search by title with the word ‘dream’ for example, just type it in and all the articles with ‘dream’ in the title will come up on the screen. 现在我们的很多资料都是有可用的电子版的。你可以通过图书馆的电脑进入他们的数据库并获得电子报刊或文章,如果你去搜索“梦”这个词,所有的有“梦“这个关键字的资料将会被打印在电脑屏幕上。 Cool, that’s great! Too bad I cannot do this from home. 酷!真棒!我在家里我做不到这些。 But you can. All of the library’s databases and electronic sources can be accessed through any computer connected to the university network. 但是你在这里可以。大学里的任何一台计算机都可以连接上学校图书馆里的网络,可以通过他们来查看图书馆的数据库和电子刊物。 Really?! I can’t believe I didn’t know that. It still sounds like it’s going to take a while though, you know, going through all of that information, all of those sources. 真的吗?我不敢相信我居然不知道这些。这听起来仍然像是要花一些时间,虽然,你知道,完成所有的信息,以及所有的来源。 Maybe, but you already narrow your search down to articles on Dream Interpretation, so it shouldn’t be too bad. And you probably notice that there’s an abstract or summary at the top of the first page of the article you copied. When you go into the databases and electronic sources, you have the option to display the abstracts on the computer screen, skimming those to decide whether or not you want to read the whole article should cut down some time. 可能,但是你只要搜索你的主题,梦的解析。所以这不是很困难。注意第一页文章的上方肯能会有一篇概括或摘要。。。。。。。。。(后面的不会了) Right, abstracts! They’ll definitely make the project more durable. I guess I should try out the electronic search while I’m still here then, you know, just in case. 是的,摘要!它们使方案变得更加耐用。我想我在这里应该尝试用电子设备搜索,、 Sure, er… that computer’s free over there, and I’ll be here till five this afternoon. 呃...那台电脑现在可以使用,下午五点前我会一直在这里。 Thanks, I feel a lot better about this assignment now. 谢谢,我现在知道了很多关于我的作业的事情。

Repost this as a note entry. Easier for me to polish it. At a glance, not too shabby at all but definitely needs some polishing. This is a dialog, so the language is a bit wee different from formal ones, etc. The importance in this kind of translation, meaning is of paramount important than accuracy of translated terms. Idioms used in Chinese conversation are different from those in English.
