Quora:“小姐姐”的英文是什么?

一、用户Augustus Chen的回答

“小姐姐” is defined as a female person, usually older than you, who’s somewhat mature but also young and cute at the same time. This concept is non-existent in English and therefore impossible to express without explaining in detail.

“小姐姐”被定义为一个通常比你年长,同时也有些成熟,但又年轻可爱的女人。这个概念在英语中是不存在的,因此如果不详细解释就不可能表达出来。

Any translation you see is surely to some degree inaccurate. “Cute girl” or “hot chick” would be oversimplication, although you could use those if the context does not require you to be too accurate.

你看到的任何翻译在一定程度上都不准确。“可爱的女孩”或“辣妹”会过于简单,但如果上下文不要求你太准确,你可以使用这些。

Traditionally, he could call her “Lady”, which literally means young girl from a respectable family. However this phrase has a much popular meaning of “prostitute” (and more terribly often means that of lower class), and shall no longer be used.

传统上,他可以称她为“小姐”,字面意思是来自一个尊敬的家庭的年轻女孩。然而,这句话有一个“妓女”(更经常意味着更低阶级)的普遍意义,不应再使用。

“姑娘”/“小姑娘” or “女孩”/“女孩子”(“girl”)could be another possible usage, but lack of respect in Chinese culture, also a bit of alienation. Interestingly, I noticed that nowadays when refer to a girl, young female tend to use “姑娘” more, while young male tend to use “女孩子” more often, though there is no clear rule or explanation for this. I am not sure if this conclusion is correct. Also, the second phrase usually could not be used second personally, I mean face to face.

“姑娘”/“小姑娘”或“女孩”/“女孩子”(“女孩”)可能是另一种可能的用法,但在中国文化中缺乏尊重,也有点疏离。有趣的是,我注意到现在当提到一个女孩的时候,年轻女性更倾向于使用“姑娘”,而年轻男性往往更倾向于使用“女孩子”,虽然没有明确的规则和解释。我不确定这个结论是否正确。另外,第二个词通常不能亲自使用,我的意思是面对面。

Literally, it means ‘little older sister’. But it is used more and more often on social media in China. It means ‘pretty girl’, probably older than the speaker, probably not. Meanwhile, “小哥哥” meaning ‘little older brother’ or ‘handsome boy’ is also popular on line.

从字面上来说,这意味着“小姐姐”。但在中国社交媒体上越来越多地被使用。这意味着'漂亮的女孩',可能比说话者年长,可能不是。与此同时,“小哥哥”意思是“小哥哥”或“帅哥”也在网上流行。

Actually, it could be translated as ‘younger older sister’. For example, my late dad had two older sisters and Catherine was the younger of the two. Therefore, she was his younger older sister which, as Kevin Mei has pointed out, is an oxymoron but perfectly acceptable in this instance. Also, as Billy Kingston has pointed out, it is used to mean a pretty young girl.

实际上,它可以翻译成“年轻的姐姐”。例如,我已故的父亲有两个姐姐,而凯瑟琳是两个中较年轻的。所以,她就是他妹妹,正如倪匡凯所指出的,这是一个矛盾,但在这个例子中是完全可以接受的。另外,正如比利·金斯顿(Billy Kingston)指出的那样,这是一个年轻漂亮的女孩。

Likewise, 小哥哥 would be translated as younger older brother or handsome young man.

同样,小哥哥也可以被翻译成年轻的哥哥或英俊的年轻人。
