研英翻译演练(3)

正文:

Such an outcome, if it happens,could cause a political controversy; or it could lead to more power being transferred to the eu in the worst possible circumstances, namely when the union is deeply unpopular.

要点:

这是一个复合句,条件从句很短,所以置于主谓之间,造成句子,翻译时应将从句提到句首。"namely when the union is deeply unpopular"是一个状语从句,用来解释"the worst possible circumstances"。

参考译文:

译文:这种情况一旦发生,就可能引起政治上的争吵;即使在最糟糕的情况下即在欧盟很不得人心的情况下,也可能使更多的权利转移到自己手中。
