First, the fact that they have sent you an agreement puts you under no obligation to sign it. However, being asked to sign an agreement is not in and of itself unusual.


这个is not in and of itself 中的in itsel 和 of itself 有何区别,都该各自翻译成什么?

我的理解是,in itself可以翻成本身怎样怎样。

"In and of itself" is a fixed expression commonly seen in legal context and means something like per se and as such, or in Chinese, 事情本身。

我觉得,in itsel 和 of itself 应该是有些细微差别的。

不敢把它们用一个词“本身”就全带过了。
