连读:

I:

Matthew, do you know much about body language in countries around the world?

马修,你了解世界各国的肢体语言吗?

M:

Sure, I've picked up a few things from travelling around for work. Why?

当然。我工作中有很多出差的机会,了解到一些这方面的知识。怎么了?

I:

Well, I had a meeting today with a woman from Japan and she wouldn't stop bowing! I didn't know what to do!

好哎,我今天参加了一个会议,会上有个日本女子总是不停地鞠躬?我不知道该怎么办!

M:

Did you bow back?

你也鞠躬回礼了吗?

I:

No, I tried to shake her hand, but her hand was so limp I was a bit offended.

没有,我试着和她握手,但是她的手软弱无力,弄的我都有点不高兴了。

M:

Well, Japanese businessmen and women typically bow to greet each other in Japan. She might have been offended by your strong handshake.

哦,在日本,谈生意的人无论男女一般都会互相鞠躬致意。你握手那么用力她很可能因此而有点不愉快。

I:

But she was in America! Shouldn't she have known that strong handshakes in America signify confidence and respect?

但她这是在美国!难道她不知道,在美国用力握手意味着信任和尊重吗?

M:

Things are different in Japan. You know, in some countries, making eye contact with others is considered rude.

这跟日本的习俗完全不同。你知道吗,在有些国家,直视对方的眼睛被认为是无理的举动

I:

Is that why she wouldn’t look at me in the meeting?

这就是她为什么在开会时一直不看我的原因吧?

M:

I think it's highly possible, yes.

我觉得很可能是这个缘故。

I:

The meeting really didn’t go down well at all. I think I need to read up about intercultural communication before I have another meeting with someone from another country.

这次的会晤进行得非常不顺利。我想下次再出席类似这样有外国人参加的会议之前,一定要熟知一些有关跨文化交流方面的知识。

M:

That's a good idea. When you don’t know much about other cultures, the simplest thing can offend someone.

这是个好主意。当你对另一种文化缺乏了解的时候,即使是最简单的举止也会冒犯到别人。

I:

That's so true. It's great that we see eye to eye on this.

一点没错。真高兴咱俩对这件事情看法一致。
