  原文:


  泰。山位于山东省。西部。海拔150。0余米,方圆约400平。方公里。泰山不仅雄伟壮观,而且是一座历史文化名山,过去3000多年。一直是人们前。往朝拜的地方。据记载,共有72位帝王曾来此游览。许多作家到泰山获取灵感,写诗作文,艺术家也来此绘画。山上因此留下了许许多多的。文物古迹。泰山如今已成为中国一处主要的旅游景点。


  解析:


  这段话可以分为七个句子。


  【第一句】泰山位。于山东省西部。


  【第二句】海拔1500余米,方圆约400平方公里。


  这句话的重点在于“位于”二字,当然用be in这个结构也没有问题,但是。如果能用be located in。或。者。be situated in会更准确。“泰山”,可以被翻译为Taishan Mountain或者Mount Ta。i. 对于水平更。高的同学来说,因为这两个句子都是在介绍泰山的基本情况,所以也能翻译成一个复合句


  这两句话可以翻译为:


  Mount Tai is in wes。tern Shandong province. It is over 1500。 m。eters high and about 400 square kilometers.


  更高级的翻译是:


  Mount Tai, located in the。 west of Shandong Pr。ovince, is over 1500 meters above sea level, and covers an area of about 400 square kilometers.


  【第三句】泰山。不仅雄伟壮观,而且是一座历史文化名山,过去3000多年一直是人们前往朝拜的地方。


  这句话中的“朝拜”,在之前的四级翻译中曾经出现过,翻译成worship。当然,如果实在回想不出“朝拜”的意思,也可以直接用visit来保证行文能够进行下去。“过。去300。0多年一直是人们前往朝拜的地方”,这个句子在翻译的时候应该用成完成时。


  这句话可以翻译为:


  Mount Tai is great and it is a famo。us mountain for its history and culture。. People have visited there over the past 3000 y。ears.


  更高级的翻译是:


  Mount Tai is。 a magnificent mountain. B。esides, it。 is a famous mountain with history and culture. For more than 3000 years, it has been a pla。ce where people have taken a journey to worship.


  【第四句。】据记载,共有72位帝王曾来此游览。


  中国的“帝王”应该是emperor,而不是king。


  这句话可以翻译为:


  Accordi。ng to the record, 72 emperors have visited there.


  更高级的翻译是:


  A total of 72 emperors were re。corded as visiting it.


  【第五句】许多作家到泰山获取灵感,写诗作文,艺术家也来此绘画。


  这句话和之前的话没有太大的逻辑关系,所以可以用in addition开头来增强逻辑清晰度。灵感,是inspiration。


  这句话可以翻译为:


  Many writers g。o to Mount Tai。 to get ideas for poems and articles. Ar。tists also go there for painting.


  更高级的。翻译是:


  In add。ition, writ。ers have traveled to Mount Tai for inspiration, producing poems and essays. Artists。 come here to draw and paint pictures as we。ll.


  【。第六句】山上因此留下了许许多多的文物古。迹。


  这句话很明显与之前。的句子有一个因果关系,可以用for that reason和as a result来翻译。“文物古。迹”也是一个相对比较难的名词词组翻译,cultural relics。


  这句话可以翻译为:


  For that reason, many ancie。nt thing。s are。 left there.


  更高级的翻译是:


  As a result, a great many cultural relics were left。 on the mountain.


  【第七句】泰山如今已成为中国一处主。要的旅游景点。


  这个句子比较简单,需要注意翻译的时候要用现在完成时。


  这句话可以翻译为:.


  Now Mount Tai has。 been a major to。urist attracti。on in China.


  更高级的翻译是:


  Nowadays Mount Tai has become a。 main。 scenic attraction in China.
