this is another "looks-like" case, for the translator assumed that delivery looks like "songhuo shangmen."

金山词霸

ÍìÁô 挽留
detainment detention

I thought 挽留 can be used to mean "try to talk a friend out of leaving." So "detain, detainmnet, detention" would not apply for this case, would it?

I could not image using "detention" for that kind of  挽留, but I guess one can use detain this way: "Despite an all out effort to detain my friend from leaving, he packed up and left." (Or would "to retain my friend" be a better? Ideas, anyone?)

consolidate 翻译为"巩固" ——《金山词霸2005》,但根据我的经验,我跟英国人交流时发现好像这个词还有别的意思。

i.e. Please ship out the defective parts to Shanghai this Friday and then all of them will be consolidated and send out to Singapore eventually.

groom v. tr.

To prepare (a trail) for skiers, as by packing down new snow or leveling moguls.
准备(滑雪)赛道为滑雪者准备(雪道),如铺设新雪或或制造隆起点

这个是批公示语的副产品

词霸的简明英汉词典:
nucleus
[5nju:kliEs]
[nuclear的复数, 见nuclear]
n.
核子

----------------
nucleus 明明是名词单数,其复数为 nuclei or nucleuses, 词霸却说它是 nuclear 的复数!nuclear 是形容词,哪里来什么复数?!

困惑!

楼上的说cheerleader应该翻译为啦啦队员,可是《牛津高阶英汉双解词典》第230页解释为“带领观众欢呼的人,由指体育比赛中的啦啦队长”
请解释一下~

带领观众欢呼的人——每一位“啦啦队员”都是“带领观众欢呼的人”。啦啦队长=captain of the cheerleaders
