“门票价格”的译文ticket price明显不符合英语表达习惯,既可以说是根据母语思维和表达方式翻译的结果,也可以说是在英语中找到了假对应词,想到“票”就条件反射想到ticket,说到“价格”,脑子里能想得起来的只有price这一单词。首先,译者把这里的“价格”想当然地译成price是第一个错误,因为price通常指的是商品的价格,商店里出售的商品才有price

Hi:
我认为”年“还可以用"yearly"

例如:monthly subscription(包月)

有关”票“ 我认为 ”月票“的票是一张卡(卡片);而"ticket"是一张票(薄纸)。

pass 的解释:
  a card, ticket, or permit giving authorization for the holder to enter or have access to a place, form of transport, or event.

ticket 的解释:

■  noun
    a piece of paper or card giving the holder a right to admission to a place or event or to travel on public transport.

根据字典看来似乎pass和ticket都差不多。

my guess

annual/yearly   强调每年续一次费?
year-long 全年有效?

没有什么严格的区分,在具体情况下应该用哪一个有时候需要斟酌一下。但问题不在这里,而是在于作者一知半解,斩钉截铁地把一些明明是正确的说法判断为“明显不符合英语表达习惯”。

我找到了一个例子,不知道对不对:

In this paper, I have assembled a 138 year-long record of yearly atmospheric CO2 levels, extracted from more then 180 technical papers published between ...

这里是'year-long"和"yearly”出现在一个句子里的情况.

还可以用year-round pass

或one-year pass

annual pass 在Disney上能找得到

annual 也许比yearly 更正式
