根据最新的更新(revision 1.3)的审校。

我们先重点修改格式吧。之前几个翻译我没有认真看格式,结果提交到GNU那里导致格式不对一直没能更新。后来是GNU那边的人帮忙修改了,并且给我发了一封邮件,以下摘抄自他们的邮件:

First, the translation is not technically complete: the strings
"GNUN-SLOT: TRANSLATOR'S NOTES" and "GNUN-SLOT: TRANSLATOR'S CREDITS" are empty. If translators have no notes and don't want credits, these strings should be translated as spaces. GNUN will consider the PO file incomplete until these translations are filled, the web page won't regenerate.

Then, Thérèse noticed that translations of some strings correspond
to older versions. Translators should make sure to check that
the translation reproduces the current string, it's probably
the hardest thing in updating the translations.

At last, there is a lot of odd backslashes, basically, every double quote is "escaped". Probably you should get accustomed with how these characters work in PO files.

简单说来:

1. GNUN-SLOT: TRANSLATOR'S CREDITS 一项,如果内容为空,那么翻译项需要放一个空格。详细参见.po文件里的注释
2. 请确保翻译的是最新版本。
3. .po文件里面很多内容被反斜杠转意了。这个我在之前的审校里提到了,但是好像1.3版还是没有改过来。

以下是Review的意见:

原文:Since 1983, the Free Software Movement has campaigned for computer users' freedom &mdash;for users to control the software they use, rather than vice versa.
当前译文:从1983年起,自由软件运动就一直为计算机用户的自由&mdash;为用户对所使用的软件的控制而斗争,而不是反过来。
审校意见:译文的翻译腔很严重。中文里很少把“而不是反过来”这么一句话放在最后。在表达类似意思的时候。举个例子,在一个典型的中国课堂,学生不听讲乱说话。这时候老师可能会说:“你们是听我讲课,不是你们给我讲课!”想象如果老师说“你们是听我讲课,而不是反过来!”这个时候学生会怎么反映?我建议的翻译是:自由软件运动始于1983年,旨在捍卫计算机用户的自由 &mdash; 用户应该有权控制自己使用的软件,而不是被软件控制。

原文:Some proprietary (nonfree) programs, such as Photoshop, are very expensive;
当前译文:一些专利(非自由)软件,如Photoshop,非常昂贵;
审校意见:这里的翻译是错误的。proprietary programs的翻译应该是专有软件。软件专利的英文是software patent。此处必须修改。此处之后多出翻译都有错误,请修改。

当前译文:一些专利(非自由)软件,如Photoshop,非常昂贵;其他如Flash Player,可以免费使用&mdash;但是这并不是重点。
审校意见:“但是这并不是重点”说得有些突兀,会让读者不知道究竟指的是什么。不如明确说成“但软件价格并不是重点”。

原文:Those two nonfree programs have something else in common: they are both <em>malware</em>.
当前译文:这两种非自由软件有一些共同点:它们都是<em>恶意</em>。
审校意见:第一,不是一些共同点,而是一个共同点。something的意思是:a thing that is unspecified or unknown. 注意是a thing。第二,它们都是恶意软件?建议翻译:这两种非自由软件有一个共同点:他们都是<em>恶意软件</em>。

原文:With free software, the users control the program, both individually and collectively.
当前译文:有了自由软件,用户就能控制软件,单独或者协同。
审校意见:翻译腔。想象老师在课堂对学生说:“这次道题拿回家做,单独或者协同。” 学生肯定要反映一下。建议翻译:使用自由软件,用户可以控制整个程序的行为。这种控制可以由单个用户独立完成,也可以用户之间自由协作完成。另外,此段的译文每行超过了80字符,需要调整格式。

当前译文:当你用它们来做重要事情是则更是如此。
审校意见:错别字。当你用它们来做重要事情时则更是如此

格式问题:原文中的反斜杠(\)都被变成了三个反斜杠。请修改。

我先看到这里。可以再把译文和原文看一遍,尽量让译文的语句通顺,符合我们中国人的表达习惯。
