”英翻中”請英文高手幫忙翻譯”Two Yahoos”的一段

WhenYahoo!officially opened for business,its corporate offices were typical for an Internet start up company Newspaper accounts from 1995 give this description.

All the office furniture is purple and yellow,the official corporate color.In purple-painted cubicles,16 employees, called "surfers," sit in front of computers and review Web site submissions, rejecting some and deciding where to put the ones they accept. All of the surfers are in their early 20s, wear T-shirts, and park their bicycles next to their desks.

From time to time,David Filo, barefoot and wearing torn jeans, emerges from his office, which is cluttered with old newspapers, CDs a pair of purple roller blades, and crumpled Coke cans. Often David doesn't leave Yahoo! headquarters for days-he sleeps under his desk-and whenhe does leave, he drives away in a dilapidated 1981 Datsun, its tailpipe dragging on the ground. To top it off, Jerry and David carry business cards that identify their positions in the company as the "Chief Yahoos."

But the ChiefYahoos knew what they were doing. Thier competitors were in a race to develop powerful technology to collect as many Internet sites as possible for their directories. Some even used robot computers, called "spiders," that searched the Internet day and night, looking for new sites.

希望早7:00前會有下落~好心又專業的大人們大感謝囉!

(別用翻譯機直翻呀....)

    當 yahoo! 正式的上市時, 報紙(Newspaper大寫應指 某一家報紙公司) 把它視為一種典型的 網路入口 公司.

    所有的辦公家具都是紫色跟黃色-它們的公司代表色!

    總共有16位 "瀏覽者" 都坐在一間紫色的房間裡, 利用電腦

    去瀏覽網頁並提出看法, 藉此來決定哪一些網頁要

    分門別類到哪一處, 並且把一些不合理的淘汰。

    所有瀏覽者的年紀都大約20出頭, 穿著T-shirt並把腳踏車放在

    他們的書桌旁邊。

    有時候, David Filo 會光腳並穿著劃破的牛仔褲,從他那到處丟著舊報紙, 唱片, 壓扁的可樂罐, 直排溜冰鞋的辦公室出現。

    通常David 不會離開yahoo!的總公司太久, 他都睡在他的辦公桌

    底下。

    當他離開時, 他會開著他的1981 Datsun出去, 一輛排氣管鬆脫在地上快要報廢的車子。

    做個結論, Jerry 跟 David會帶著公司辨識卡片, 上面寫著他們的

    職位 "公司總工程師" (總經理 總工程師都可以)

    雖然邋塌, 但是總工程師們知道他們在該做什麼,他們的競爭方向是開發更多有利的科技去盡量收集網頁。

    有一些人甚至用 自動電腦-"spiders" 不分晝夜的搜尋

    新的網頁。

    補充: 這些都是人名 或者特殊名號, 所以最好不直翻

    "David and Jerry" 大衛 跟 傑瑞

    "surfers" 瀏覽者, surf的意思是瀏覽

    "spiders" 是開發來搜尋網路上的項目的程式

    "Chief Yahoo!" 可做總經理 總工程師,

    從上文判斷 這裡應該是總工程師, David 跟 Jerry都是

    總工程師的一員!
