Informal Meetings:
非正式会议

Shawn: Let’s get this show on the road. This is an open discussion, so who wants to start off?

Shawn: 让我们开始吧,这是个自由讨论,谁愿意第一个?

Chris: Hannah, even though I’ve been knee-deep in your data for months, there’s something I have to get off my chest. Why didn’t you ask the focus groups about our product’s color and design?

Chris : Hannah,即使我已经在你的数据里泡了好几个月,有些事我必须要说说心里话。你为什不在产品的颜色和设计方面问问目标客户呢?

Hannah: I can see your point, Chris, but based on past experience, we know that customers mostly consider “affordability” and “ease of use” when deciding which product to buy. I can’t go into this in detail now, but most customers just want reliability, and the design is secondary.

Hannah : 我明白你的意思,Chris ,但是根据以往的经验,我们清楚在顾客决定买产品时关心的是购买力和易用性。,我现在不能详细的去说明,但是大部分顾客只想要可靠性,其次是设计。

Alex: Chris, you’ve brought up an interesting point, but I think Hannah is right. Don’t take this the wrong way, Chris, but the interests of engineers and our customers aren’t the same. But of course, I’m not a marketing expert by any means.

Alex : Chris 你提出了一个很有意思的观点,但我觉得Hannah是对的,你别误会,我无意冒犯,但是但是设计师和消费者色兴趣是不一样的,当然了,无论如何,我不是一个市场专家。
