    The weaker dollar comes as Japan is engulfed in a sense of drift.

    這整句話頗有「屋漏偏逢連夜雨」或「雪上加霜」的意思,全句翻譯如後:

    當日圓(這段話原本是談日圓的問題)正逢風雨飄搖不定之際,疲弱的美元又跟著跌跌不休。

    背景:日本經濟仰賴外貿甚重,特別是對美國,強勢的美元有助於推動日本對美國外貿的力道與獲利水準,因此,特別不樂見美元對於日圓的相對貶值。在過去,日本政府(中央銀行)強力介入操弄日圓匯率,然而這種做法在G7的抗議之下,已經不再能夠任意出招。再加上最近在反對黨的干預之下,日本中央銀行總裁被迫下臺(3月17日),而執政黨提名的接任人選也被反對黨主宰的上議院悍然打了回票。因此,就有了上面這樣的一句話,來描寫日圓匯率自生自滅、幾乎要慘遭滅頂的局勢。

    1) engulfed in a sense of drift 是指「被淹沒或吞噬在飄搖不定的感覺之中」

    2) as 是指「正當……之際」,如果整個語句帶有負面意涵的話(例如:本句就是),也可以「正當……的節骨眼」

    請參閱原文出處,以下僅節錄片段:

    ……

    The weaker dollar comes as Japan is engulfed in a sense of drift. The powerful main opposition party has held up a number of key legislation, and now threatens to leave the nation without a central bank governor when the current chief, Toshihiko Fukui, steps down March 19. Earlier this week, the opposition-controlled upper house of parliament shot down the government's proposed candidate, Toshiro Muto, and no one has come up with an alternative solution.

    Japan is particularly vulnerable to a higher yen because its economy depends so heavily on exports for growth. Japan's economy grew by 2.1% last year and more than half of that growth came from exports. A weaker dollar makes Japanese products more expensive and less competitive overseas while reducing the value of dollar-based earnings for exporters when they are converted back into the home currency.
