商务会议

Shawn:  Mr. Hanson, was Ms. Graff able to allay your concern? Good. Now we have time for only two more questions. Ms. Graff?

Shawm: Mr. Hanson, Ms. Graff缓和了你的担心吗?好的,现在我们仅剩下两个问题的时间了, Ms. Graff?

Hannah: My question is for Mr. Hanson. I was wondering whether you could expand on the section regarding product design. Am I correct in assuming that you want to offer the product in more colors?

Hannah :我的问题是提给Mr. Hanson的,我一直很疑惑你是否可以在产品设计方面扩展一下。我假定没错的话,你想要在产品上提供更多的颜色?

Chris: Let me see if I can shed better light on that. Although colors may not be as important to consumers, we are of the opinion that having more variety will increase sales….

Chris : 我看看能否更好地解释一下。尽管颜色对消费者不是很重要,我们的观点是更多的变化能提高销售量。。。

Hannah: Is that the only reason?

Hannah 这是仅有的原因吗?

Chris:  Please let me finish my thought. Another reason, which may be beyond the scope of your question, is that the increase in our costs will be small. Have I answered your question?

Chris: 请让我说完。另外一个原因,可能超出了你的问题,增加的设计的成本很小。我回答了你的问题吗?

Shawn: Yes, certainly, Chris. You’ve made it clear for all of us. And now for our final question. Mr. Aurora?

Shawn: 是的,当然。我们都明白了。现在最后一个问题,Mr. Aurora?

Alex: Given the growing competition, is it possible for us to drop this product and move into a different market? Can you speak to the implications this would have on our strategy?

Alex : 说道不断增长的竞争,我们可以放掉这个产品转向不同的市场吗?你说的言外之意也在我们的战略里吗?

Shawn:  We did consider that option, but we quickly dismissed it. We believe that we should stick to our core competencies and improve the product we currently have.

Shawn :我们确实有过这想法,但很快就放弃了。我们认为我们应该坚持核心的能力提高现在有的产品。
