Business Meetings:
商务会议

Shawn: When you have a question, please raise your hand. This will allow me to call on people one at a time and avoid having people talk over each other. Also please make sure that your questions are on topic. Who would like to begin?

Shawn:如有疑问,请举手。我一次会访问一位,避免大家互相讨论。请确保你们的提问不要离题,谁有疑问?

Chris:I need to voice my concern about how the focus groups were not asked about color or design. I think this would have...

Chris:我说出我关心的是目标客户群怎么就不要求产品的颜色和设计,我觉得...

Hannah: Please pardon my interruption, but with all due respect, Mr. Hanson, I completely disagree with you. I understand your concern, but in our experience those product characteristics pale in comparison next to “affordability” and “ease of use.” I don’t have time to address your concern fully, but most customers aren’t interested in design as much.

Hannah:请允许我打断,恕我直言,Mr. Hanson,我很赞同你。我理解你所关心的,但以我的经验这些产品特性与购买力和易用性相比很苍白。我没有时间过多的讲述你担心的事情,但是多数顾客对设计不感兴趣。

Alex:If I may offer my opinion, I believe Mr. Hanson has a legitimate concern and I’m glad he asked that question, but Ms. Graff may be right about the importance of listening to our customers. However, this topic is outside the scope of my expertise.

Alex:我的看法是,我认为Mr. Hanson的担心合理,很高兴能提出这个问题,但是Ms. Graff关于倾听客户重要性方面是对的。然而这个话题已经超出了我的专业范围。
