beijing's taiwan propaganda

The matter of fact is that Taiwan's constitution and legislative yuan make it almost impossible to change the status quo. The PRC/CCP's Taiwan think tank knows this better than anyone else..... they know that there are barriers on top of barriers for Taiwan to change its constitution to enable the necessary steps for independence. However, the CCP/PRC still seems to be paranoid? why? because they PRETEND to be paranoid, and they PRETEND to be obsessed with Taiwan. Taiwan's status today serves as a perfect pretext for the CCP to make several clever maneuvers, they include:

1. Justifying the increase of spending on military and defense.
2. Stirring up nationalist sentiments to consolidate support for the CCP.
3. Making mainlanders associate the CCP with territorial integrity and national unity.
4. Creating cold-war mentality, if needed, by touting Taiwan as a proxy of USA and Japan.
5. Diverting attention from other territorial issues concerning much bigger masses of land, especially those involving the Russians.

Summing up all the 5 points, the CCP is using the Taiwan issue to protect itself... to make sure it stays in power for as long as possible!

“台湾问题”应译为the question of Taiwan 或the Taiwan question,绝对不可译为 the issue of Taiwan或 the Taiwan issue。解决台湾问题、实现祖国的完全统一是不容讨论的,不容任何国家和外来势力的干涉。据美国韦氏词典,issue的相关含义恰恰是 a point, matter, or question to be disputed or decided。毫无疑问,我们不能在这里使用issue这个词。“台湾问题”译为 the question of Taiwan或 the Taiwan question是规范的译法。当翻译涉及敏感的政治问题时,我们必须慎之又慎。

这位兄台,我本以为这种翻译争议已经告一段落... 没想到还有人那么固执。而且固执在不该固执的地方。

中文和英文不能逐字逐句的莱翻译,得看整句所解释的涵义。

你在上面给的那些中央编译局!?他自己的翻译都有错误!像那样的人担任中央编译局翻译员??怪哉。

他在网站上写三个代表是 Three represents!?Three是数字,在这句功能是为形容词,而represents是动词。怪哉。
应该是 Three representatives。

他还把下句翻译成: 治国必先治党,治党务必从严。” 对于这个句子的译法,我们讨论了不少时间,最后定为:To run the state well, we must run the Party well first. To do this, we must be strict with the Party members.
应该是 To manage the country, we must manage well the party first, we ought to manage the party with strict discipline 或 manage the party strictly.

Taiwan question 是英语用法,直接翻译变成“台湾疑问”!
如果要以“台湾问题”来表达那英文是 Taiwan problem!

实在是... 在英语和汉语翻译问题上已站不住脚,还要谈什么国家统一大业。

如果非得要改,比较可以接受的词是 Cross-strait issue 两岸议题,或Cross-strait relation。
