    上述的四個字其實都可以用來表達同樣的意思

    其中不一樣的在於後面跟著的介係詞

    This "translates to" major corporate losses.

    This "interprets as" major corporate losses.

    This "expresses" major corporate losses.

    This "means that" major corporate losses.

    由於文裡的介係詞是「to」 所以採用「translates」

    以下取自於 Yahoo 字典

    1. translate - 翻譯,轉譯[(+from/into)]

    2. interpret - 理解[(+as)]

    3. mean - (言詞等)表示...的意思[+(that)]

    4. express - 表達,陳述;表示[+wh-]
