双语:“外星人”罗纳尔多与富豪合办足球学校
Soccer Legend Ronaldo Teams Up with Former Brazilian Billionaire to Launch Soccer Academy

Former Brazilian billionaire Carlos Wizard Martins is teaming up with retired soccer legend Ronaldo Luiz Nazario de Lima to launch a franchise of soccer schools, the Ronaldo Academy. The school’s methodology will be based on Ronaldo’s skills and achievements throughout his career on the soccer fields. The retired athlete, who has been called “the phenomenon” and is known all over the world simply by his first name, is one of only four soccer players to have won the FIFA World Player of the Year award at least three times, along with France’s Zinedine Zidane, Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
前巴西亿万富豪卡洛斯·维泽德·马丁斯(Carlos Wizard Martins)正在与足坛退役巨星罗纳尔多·路易斯·纳扎里奥·达·利马(Ronaldo Luiz Nazario de Lima)合办特许经营的足球学校,名为罗纳尔多学校。该校的培训方法基于罗纳尔多在其足球生涯中的技巧和成就。这位退役的足球运动员有着“外星人”的绰号,在世界各地都享有盛誉。迄今为止,至少三次荣获“国际足联世界年度最佳球员”(FIFA World Player of the Year)称号的足球运动员仅有四人,罗纳尔多就是其中之一,另外三人分别是法国的齐内丁·齐达内(Zinedine Zidane)、阿根廷的里奥内尔·梅西(Lionel Messi)和葡萄牙的克里斯蒂亚诺·罗纳尔多(Cristiano Ronaldo)。

Martins and Ronaldo, who both attended a press conference this Wednesday to announce their partnership, said they plan to have eight schools in operation by the year’s end. Five schools already have their locations confirmed: they will be set up in the Brazilian cities of Sao Paulo and Campinas; as well as Salt Lake City, Boca Raton and Fort Laudardale. Their aim is to have 100 schools in operation by 2020.
在上周三的新闻发布会上,马丁斯和罗纳尔多双双现身,公布了两人的合作关系,并表示他们计划到年底时开办8所足球学校。其中5所学校的校址已经确定,分别是巴西的圣保罗和坎皮纳斯以及美国的盐湖城、博卡拉顿和劳德代尔堡。他们的目标是到2020年开办100所足球学校。

During the press conference Martins explained that the company will have three strategies for expansion: through small franchises designed for small towns; through its flagship franchise in Fort Lauderdale (a new flagship franchise will soon open in Campinas); and through franchises designed specifically for mid-size to large cities .
在新闻发布会上,马丁斯解释说,该公司将有三个扩张战略:面向小城镇的小型特许经营学校;位于劳德代尔堡的特许经营旗舰学校(在坎皮纳斯新设立的特许经营旗舰学校将在不久后投入运行);专门面向大中城市的特许经营学校。

Last year Ronaldo acquired a minority stake in the Fort Lauderdale Strikes soccer team. The size of his stake and how much money he invested in it have not been disclosed. Ronaldo also owns a 45% stake in the 9ine Sports and Entertainment agency, a company that has deals outside mainstream soccer and helps companies and athletes on attracting sponsors and managing their brands. Clients include Duracell (P&G’s battery brand) and GlaxoSmithKline. The UK-based WPP Group, a world leader in advertising and marketing services, owns another 45% in 9ine and Brazilian entrepreneur Marcus Buaiz has the remaining 10%.
去年,罗纳尔多收购了美国足球队劳德代尔堡打击者队(Fort Lauderdale Strikes)的少数股份,股份数量和收购金额没有披露。罗纳尔多还拥有9ine体育娱乐经纪公司(9ine Sports and Entertainment)45%的股份。这家公司在足球主流领域之外开展交易,帮助企业和运动员吸引赞助商和管理品牌,客户包括宝洁(P&G)旗下的电池品牌金霸王和制药公司葛兰素史克(GlaxoSmithKline)。全球广告和营销服务领导者英国WPP集团拥有9ine公司45%的股份,剩下10%的股份属于巴西企业家马库斯·布埃兹(Marcus Buaiz)。

According to an estimate by FORBES editor Kurt Badenhausen, Ronaldo earned between $200-$250 million from salary and endorsements during his career. As for Martins, he joined the FORBES World’s Billionaires list in 2014 but dropped out this year.
根据福布斯编辑科尔特·巴登豪森(Kurt Badenhausen)的估计,罗纳尔多在其职业生涯中挣得2亿至2.5亿美元薪酬和代言费。至于马丁斯,他在2014年首次入选福布斯全球亿万富豪榜,但今年落选。

The oldest son of a truck driver and an Italian immigrant, Martins, a Mormon, started an English school in a small town some 200 miles from Sao Paulo after graduating at Brigham Young University in Utah in 1981, the seed of what later on became Grupo Multi, which by 2010 was the leading company in Brazil’s booming language teaching industry. That same year he sold a 15% stake in Grupo Multi, which operates through franchises, for $125 million to an investment arm of Brazilian bank Banco Itau. In 2012, he sold the remaining 85% to U.K. media and education company Pearson for $720 million in cash. His absence on this year’s Billionaires list was mostly due to the devaluation of the Brazilian real against the U.S. dollar.
马丁斯是家中长子,父母是卡车司机和意大利移民。他信奉摩门教,1981年从犹他州的杨百翰大学毕业后,在距离圣保罗大约200英里远的一个小镇上创办了一所英语培训学校,后来发展成为Grupo Multi公司。到2010年,该公司在巴西蓬勃发展的语言培训行业中已经处于领先地位。同年,他以1.25亿美元的价格,把15%的Grupo Multi公司(采取特许经营模式)股份出售给了巴西伊塔乌银行(Banco Itau)旗下的一个投资部门。2012年,他把剩余85%的股份出售给了英国传媒和教育公司培生(Pearson),获得7.2亿美元现金。他之所以缺席今年的亿万富豪榜,主要是因为巴西货币雷亚尔兑美元贬值。
