“青梅竹马”用英文怎么翻译?

回答一:

看到「青梅竹马」和「英文」两个关键词,第一反应就是阿甘的那句:
Jenny and I was like peas and carrots.
不知道能不能这么翻译?

回答二:

是不是 childhood sweethearts?

首先,将「青梅竹马」(例:他们俩是青梅竹马)直译成(green plums and a bamboo horse)应是欠妥的,若只译出表面上的事物而忽略了内在的涵义,这是直译时常见的错误。

其次,如果用长句或一段话来描述「青梅竹马」,当然多么诗意的版本都有,难就难在用较为准确、对应的词汇来解释它。

回答三:

如果是说从小一起长大的意思,那就是”we grew up together”。如果是说小时候小恋爱的那个意思,那就是”puppy love”。很不幸,两者都没有“青梅竹马”的那个意境……

WIKIPEDIA词义解释: Puppy love (also known as a crush or calf love even “kitten love”) is an informal term for feelings of love or infatuation felt by young people during childhood and adolescence…The term is often used in a derogatory fashion, describing emotions which are shallow and transient in comparison to other forms of love such asromantic love.

Urban Dictionary用法举例: “It was just puppy love between Greg and I when we were 9.”

还有highschool sweetheart/college sweetheart: 指代高中恋人或大学恋人

回答四:

查《辞海 语词分册》,青梅竹马的解释是:

李白《长干行》:“郎骑竹马来,绕床弄青梅。”后常以形容小儿女天真无邪、亲昵嬉戏之状。

查林语堂的《当代汉英词典》,青梅竹马的英文释义是:

the games of childhood, hence, the period when a boy and a girl grew up together.

请注意:没提什么love、sweetheart的事儿。
我的理解是:“青梅竹马”不一定与暧昧爱意有关。那样译的话,是把这词儿的外延给整小了。

回答五:

They are childhood sweethearts. 记得是在一部电影里看到的
