前一阵子替一个德国客户翻译了一个中国税收政策的文件,其中有一个非常中国特色的词——“生产建设兵团”,我译为“Production-construction legion”。客户后来审稿的时候认为这个词相当成问题,逻辑上讲不通,提议让我把“legion”改成 “Region”。

可以考虑用 Corps of ( ... ), 比如 Corps of Construction & Production Personnel.

Or perhaps use this existing translation. It's not bad, IMO ...

"拯救兵团" May 17, 2010

说到"兵团",突然想起西方国家的一个传教组织“Salvation Army”。如果将它译为"拯救兵团","拯救大军",中国人恐怕也是不知所云。

That reminds me of that English sign "Salvaging Room" at the Shanghai hospital in one of the scenes of the Chinese TV series "蜗居".

我觉得 "拯救军" 可以. 我想国内可以接受, 要不为了清楚啥地方再加上 "慈善" 一词.

"救世军" 、"拯民军"、"济贫军" 我看也都凑合.
