一小段從economist上擷取的翻譯-英翻中

The practice of slipping baksheesh into a well-placed palm is not a novel one. "He... that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes... he shall dwell on high," said the prophet Isaiah, and he was doubtless not the first to comment on the matter. Yet the announcement on December 14th that Britain's Serious Fraud Office(SFO) would be dropping its two-year inquiry into bribes that may or may not have been paid by BAE Systems, a defence firm,to secure contracts in Saudi Arabia has created an almighty stink.

請幫我翻成中文,請不要用翻譯軟體,謝謝!

    把錢偷偷地塞入正好位居其位的人手中,並不是什麼新鮮事,先知「以賽亞」就曾經說過:「他….不會接受賄賂….他必居高位!」而「以賽亞」絕對不是第一位對這種事情發表看法的人,可見很久很久以前就有「賄賂」這種事。

    Yet the announcement on December 14th that Britain's Serious Fraud Office (SFO) would be dropping its two-year inquiry into bribes that may or may not have been paid by BAE Systems, a defence firm, to secure contracts in Saudi Arabia has created an almighty stink.

    然而,英國的「重罪偵防局」在12月14日宣佈,該局對已經調查了二年,到底BAE Systems公司到底有沒有賄賂「沙烏地阿拉伯」有關官員以取得採購武器的合約一案,不再繼續調查,還是引起議論紛紛,BAE Systems公司是一家製造防衛武器的公司。
