ECONOMICS REPORT - Facebook's New Friends Like the World of Private Finance

This is the VOA Special English Economics Report.

Facebook is the world's biggest social network -- and the subject of the movie "Social Network."

脸谱网是世界上最大的社交网络同时也是社交网络电影的主题。

The real Mark Zuckerberg and his friends at Harvard University launched the site in two thousand four. Facebook says it reached five hundred million users last July.

在哈佛大学马克和他的朋友在 2004 年创建了这个网站。去年六月脸谱网说他们的网站达到了五亿用户。

Now, the American bank Goldman Sachs and the Russian company Digital Sky Technologies have friended Facebook. They are investing a total of five hundred million dollars in the company. The deal values Facebook at fifty billion dollars -- more than many publicly traded Internet companies.

现在,美国高盛投资银行和俄罗斯数字天空科技公司已经与脸谱网建立了友好关系。他们将会投资总额达五亿美元给这家公司。这个交易使脸谱价值达到五百亿美元,这超过很多已知的因特网公司。

Goldman Sachs is expected to raise a billion and a half dollars more by selling shares of ownership in Facebook to rich investors. The plan does not include a public stock offering -- at least not right now.

对于富裕的投资者高盛被期望通过销售它持有的脸谱的股份来筹集十点五亿多美元的资金。这个计划不包括公共的可提供的股票,至少现在不是。

For now, Facebook would remain a private company -- meaning a company that does not sell shares to the public. The plan has brought new attention to the largely secretive world of private financing and the rules for private companies in the United States.

现在脸谱仍是一个私人的公司,那就意味着这家公司不能向公众销售股份。这个计划已经引起了对世界上大的私密的财团以及美国私人公司的规章制度的新的主意。

The idea is that investors in public companies have protections that investors in private companies do not. The Securities and Exchange Commission says a private company must report financial information if it has five hundred shareholders or more.

那个想法就是在公共公司的投资者有保护而在私人公司没有。证券交易委员会说私人公司必须报告他的财务信息假如它有五百或者以上的股东。

A new business, a startup company, is usually considered too risky for average investors. But a promising startup may find a small number of private investors, often known as "angels." These investors are willing to lose everything for a chance at big returns.

新的行业一个新的公司通常会为普通投资者考虑很多风险。但是一个有前途的新公司的创办也许会找到为数不多的私人投资者,这就是著名的天使投资。这些投资者为了获得更大回报的机会愿意牺牲一切。

Rikki Tahta has been involved in raising money for startups. He is now chairman of his own investment company, Covestor, with offices in New York and London.

PT 已经为一些新的公司筹集资金。他现在是他的投资公司的董事长。

Mr. Tahta compares the difference between public and private companies to the difference between marriage and dating. When people are dating, he says, there are understandings but few rules. In marriage, the rules are more clear and well-defined.

T 把公共公司和私人公司的不同比作结婚和约会的不同。当人们约会的时候,他说,那是相互理解的而且几乎没有规则。而在婚姻中规则会更加清晰并且是明确规定好的。

In his opinion, the only real benefit for a private company is lower administrative and record-keeping costs. Yet he tells us Covestor remains a private company after a few years because it is still too risky for most investors.

 以他的意思私人公司的唯一真实的利润是更低的管理和记录成本。他仍告诉我们数年后 C 仍是个私人的投资公司因为对大多数投资者来说它仍有很大的风险。

这是本人翻译的Economic Report文章的最后一篇了,以后每天还回翻译但是不会在翻译经济类的了。不翻译其他类型的感觉对一些单词太生疏,为了扩大词汇量以后会翻译不同类型的文章。

希望各位多多拍砖,砸死我吧!

提点小意见哦
a billion and a half dollars 是指15亿 而不是10.5亿
understandings 是指默契 而不是同情的复数
倒数第二段的benefit翻译成“好处”或者“优势”比较好,翻译成利润的话显然是不合实际的。
often known as angels 可以翻译成这就是人们常说的天使投资。这句话里完全没有什么著名的意思。
private financing是指私人融资,而不是什么财团。
publicly traded上市交易的
