研英翻译演练(13)

正文:

In light of all the concerns associated with this new well of genetic information,supporters of the research stress the benefits of the new drafts,such as improved screening for diseases,personally tailored medication and a better scientific understanding of the human body,should not be overlooked.

要点:

the benefits...overlooked是stress的宾语从句。从句的主语是the benefits of the new drafts,谓语动词是should not be overlooked。such as...body是状语,用来说明new drafts,它插在主语和谓语之间,造成了句子分割,翻译时可将其置于句尾。

参考译文:

鉴于基因新知引起的种种困扰,这项研究的支持者强调,不应忽视基因草图给人类带来的好处:某些疾病的发生可以得到更有效地预防,病人可以得到更适合个人的治疗方法,人们对人体有了更科学的了解。
