請各位達人幫忙英翻中,有關HOMELESS 的問題

Public officials naturally want the homeless to disappear. This isn’t an unkind impulse. The assumption is that the homeless really want to disappear -by getting jobs, finding homes, and resuming a “normal” life. The role of officialdom is therefore to assist, prompt, and encourage the homeless to get about the business of resuming that normal life. Above all, nothing must be done that would encourage the homeless to remain homeless. In short, homelessness must be made as unremittingly difficult, degrading, and painful as possible, and you may be sure that our public guardians know well how to accomplish this.

Naturally the public wants homeless shelters, but these are hardly expected to be hospitable; no one should want to “stay” in one. If the homeless began to “stay” in shelters, this would defeat the purpose, which is to entice them out of homelessness. Avoiding officially sanctioned shelters at all costs, the homeless take refuge almost anywhere else- in alleys, parks, tunnels, and abandoned buildings, under bridges, and so on. The police have to roust them from these areas regularly, because if the homeless become comfortable anywhere, what motive have they to stop being homeless? Making and keeping the homeless as miserable as possible is cherished as a sort of tough love the very best and kindest thing we can do for them.

    Hi, 您好:

    以下是我的回答,請參考看看..

    Public officials naturally want the homeless to disappear.

    當然,政府官員不想要無家可歸的人(流浪漢)存在。

    This isn’t an unkind impulse.

    這不是一個無情的想法。

    The assumption is that the homeless really want to disappear -by getting jobs, finding homes, and resuming a “normal” life.

    假設是藉由他們找到工作,找到家,重新開始一個 " 正常 " 生活,讓無家可歸的人(流浪漢)真的想要消失

    The role of officialdom is therefore to assist, prompt,

    and encourage the homeless to get about the business of resuming that normal life.

    政府(官方)的角色是協助,促使,鼓勵無家可歸的人(流浪漢)由重新開始正常的日常工作。

    Above all, nothing must be done that would encourage the homeless to remain homeless.

    以上所言,鼓勵無家可歸的人(流浪漢)保持原狀, 不一定做任何事。

    In short, homelessness must be made as unremittingly difficult, degrading,

    and painful as possible,

    and you may be sure that our public guardians know well how to accomplish this.

    簡而言之,要達成使命,(使無家可歸的人(流浪漢)消失)

    必須先確定我們的公眾監護人很清楚應該如何完成,且一定要被做同樣地不畏艱難、丟臉的,可能的痛苦。

    Naturally the public wants homeless shelters,

    but these are hardly expected to be hospitable;

    no one should want to “stay” in one.

    當然,大家都希望無家可歸的人(流浪漢)有庇護所

    但那些不被期待去招待週到(好客)

    沒有人想"待"在那種地方

    If the homeless began to “stay” in shelters,

    this would defeat the purpose, which is to entice them out of homelessness.

    如果無家可歸的人(流浪漢)開始想"待"在庇護所,

    會使我們失敗,使他們繼續無家可歸.

    Avoiding officially sanctioned shelters at all costs,

    the homeless take refuge almost anywhere else- in alleys,

    parks, tunnels, and abandoned buildings, under bridges, and so on.

    避免政府支援庇護所的所有支出

    無家可歸的人(流浪漢) 在小巷中,公園, 隧道子地道),廢棄建築, 橋下等等棲身

    The police have to roust them from these areas regularly,

    because if the homeless become comfortable anywhere,

    what motive have they to stop being homeless?

    警察定期在這些地方驅趕他們

    因為無家可歸的人(流浪漢) 隨處可棲身

    什麼動力讓他們可以停止流浪呢?

    Making and keeping the homeless as miserable as possible

    is cherished as a sort of tough love the very best and kindest thing we can do for them.

    如果讓無家可歸的人(流浪漢)如此不幸

    能為他們什麼做呢? 只有我們抱有最好,最親切的愛對待他們

    這句我翻得不好...我再想一想怎麼翻哦~~

    當然,政府官員想要無家可歸的人(流浪漢)消失,並不是一個無情的想法。

    政府(官方)的角色是協助,促使,鼓勵無家可歸的人(流浪漢)由重新開始正常的日常工作。

    以上所言,不做任何事是鼓勵無家可歸的人(流浪漢)保持原狀。

    簡而言之,要達成使命,(使無家可歸的人(流浪漢)消失)

    必須先確定他們清楚應該如何完成,且讓他們能不畏艱難、丟臉的,可能的痛苦。

    當然,大家都希望無家可歸的人(流浪漢)有地方住(庇護所)

    但那些地方不可能多好。

    沒有人想"待"在那種地方,如果有人開始想"待"在庇護所,

    會使政策失敗,使他們繼續無家可歸.

    不想待在政府所提供庇護所,

    無家可歸的人(流浪漢) 在小巷中,公園, 隧道子地道),廢棄建築, 橋下等等棲身

    警察定期在這些地方驅趕他們,

    因為無家可歸的人(流浪漢) 隨處可棲身

    有什麼動力讓他們可以停止流浪呢?

    儘量不讓無家可歸的人(流浪漢)有悲慘,不幸

    能為他們什麼做呢? 只有我們抱有最好,最親切的愛對待他們
