  Section III Translation

  46.Directions:

  Translate the following text into Chinese. Write your translation neatly on the ANSWER SHEET. (15 points)

  A fifth grader gets a homework assignment to select his future career path from a list of occupations. He ticks "astronaut" but quickly adds "scientist" to the list and selects it as well. The boy is convinced that if he reads enough, he can explore as many career paths as he likes. And so he reads - everything from encyclopedias to science fiction novels. He reads so fervently that his parents have to institute a "no reading policy" at the dinner table.

  That boy was Bill Gates, and he hasn't stopped reading yet - not even after becoming one of the most successful people on the planet. Nowadays, his reading material has changed from science fiction and reference books: recently, he revealed that he reads at least 50 nonfiction books a year. Gates chooses nonfiction titles because they explain how the world works. "Each book opens up new avenues of knowledge to explore," Gates says.

  参考译文

  有一个五年级的学生,拿到了一门家庭作业,要他在一系列职业名单中选出自己未来的职业之路。他选了“宇航员”,但是有迅速在名单上加了个“科学家”,也选上了。这个男孩相信,如果读书够多,他就能随心所欲,走向各种不同的职业道路。因此,他博览群书,无论是百科全书还是科幻小说。他痴迷于阅读,父母不得不规定他吃饭时“禁止阅读”。

  这个男孩就是比尔·盖茨,他还没有停止阅读——哪怕他已经是这个世界最成功的人之一了。如今,他的阅读材料不再是科幻小说和工具类书籍:最近,他透露自己一年至少要读50本非小说类书籍。盖茨选择非小说类,是因为这些书籍可以解释世界如何运转。“每一本书都会打开知识探索的新道路。”他说道。
