背景:

还原:

现在在一家港资企业做电子工程师, 由于公司的产品全都是销往国外,所以所有的客户都是foreigner , 当有一些工程问题豆需要我们去沟通, 但是大部分都是以email的形式,有时customer 会来我们公司指导生产, 但是本人的口语只是一般般啦, 所以决定坚持学习下去,边工作边学习,争取半年内听懂what they said , 一年内交流自如, 当我的英语水平达到我期望的时候,想找一份PM的工作试试.
  开这个帖子的目的是:
  1. Record我的学习点滴--Everyday .
  2. Hope to make more friends .
  3. 与大家共同学习,有不懂之处请各位大侠多指教.
  
  Thanks for your attention !
  Come on !

  今天我在看email的时候,终于发现了我一直都不知道怎么说的一个词---定位柱, 因为我们在做工程夹具的时候经常用到它,而且也要经常和老外讲.
  
  Could you please help check the panel guiding hole position and feasible to modify the existing tester by adding the guide-pin onto the Test fixture to facilitate 4x3 panel ?
  
  Guide-pin 就是定位柱/销 ,一般是夹具上用来固定产品的 .

  因为我们客户要来我们公司,来谈一些他们产品的生产事情, 在我们Marketing 的email 中就提到签证这个词 .

  一般我都会在老外的email中,摘抄一些比较经典的句子收藏.
  
  I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank her for all the support she had given to TSP. I wish her all the successes in the new venture.
  当一个公司的一个高层或职员要升职的时候,作为他的老大常用这个句子表示对他的祝贺. in the new venture 指在新的环境/新的领域/新的挑战与机遇. 英语有的时候并不能很合适的找到一个对应的中文,也许就是只可意会不可言传,呵呵, 所以就需要我们学会用常用英文去思考.
  
  当介绍一个新人和对他表示欢迎的时候,常说:
  With her rich background in sales, marketing, and business/program management, I am sure she can start her contribution to our SBU in a relative short period of time.
  May we extend our warmest welcome to Joanne.
  
  其实这些都是我们公司人事部经理(foreigner)发的email, 来介绍新的Marketing director 时候用的 .

  当你在商场或超市看到很喜欢的东西到时候,但价格太高,你就可以说:
  It’s too expensive
  The price is too high .
  或可以直接说:
  It’s beyond my means .
  I can’t afford it .
  means 还有"财富,财产"的意思,beyond one’s means 常指超出某人的财力 , 如果你见到"a man of means" 毫无疑问,他一定是一个富有的人 .
  
  Can’t you give me a break on the price ?
  不能给我便宜点吗?
  break , 常见的有休息的意思,比如lunch break (午休) ,coffee break (工作中的休息时间) , 但还有价格降低的意思 ,这里就是 .
楼主宇航峰 时间:2008-07-12 14:33:08

  休息了两天, 今天又可以record my learning .
  It’s up to you (由你来决定) .
  
  How can I get in touch wit you ?
  
  Where can I wash my hands ?(请问洗手间在哪里?)
  这是一个比较常用的问法.

  老外常用到"head..."

  When is the most convenient time for you ?

  How do I address you ?(我怎么称号你?)

楼主宇航峰 时间:2008-07-15 10:12:33
  因为是工程方面的工作,所以经常会接触一些工程用语...
  there is no silkscreen and polar indicator for the EARTH CONTACT PIN (OG-363040) on these PCBs, I hand solder a sample, pls confirm whether the polar is correct or not base on attached picture.
  有两个词比较喜欢:
  polar indicator , 当在PCB板上的丝印没有极性标识的时候,就可以用这个来跟客户沟通.
  hand solder , 指手焊 相当于manual assembly ...
  
  the solder pads for the EMI filter of BK2125 on the PCBs are not correct, it caused these filter tilted after SMT process(reflow oven), you should remove the middle pad since BK2125 is different with Murata NFM21CC223R1H3D, BK2125 only has 2 solder pads, NFM21CC223R1H3D has 3 solder pads, but you use the same pattern for both of them.
  Solder pads : 焊盘
  tilted : 倾斜

  Chances are slim .(机会很小)
  slim 不但指身体"苗条" ,还可以指机会微小,而且很形象...
  
  Do you have any openings ? (你们有空缺吗)
  一般你要是想找工作,问你的朋友他们公司有没有合适的职位,就可以说,do you have any openings?
  
  It doesn’t work .(坏了)
  让我想起曾经在小笨森的看到"My brain doesn’t work " (我有点糊涂,有点搞不清了) 个人感觉这个也很好, 特别是一些英语一般的人可以用的,比如跟老外说话时,说错了或不知道怎么说了,就可以说"my brain doesn’t work " 绝对是最好的下台阶..
  
  It’s up in the air (某事尚未决定) 很形象吧, 还在空中悬着呢... 类似的还有"It’s undecided "
  
  Neck and neck (不分上下)

  the powter is gone.
  there will be a power outage tomorrow .
  这三句都是停电的意思, 但是前两句主要是指突然停电,比如突然停电了,老美的第一反映就是"the power is gone " or the power is off . 第三句用在比较正式的场合,如公告明天要停电: there will be a power outage tomorrow .
  而关掉和打开电源用"turn off " and "turn on "
  turn off the power and turn on the power .
  
  The power is running low .
  快要没电了.
  我都不知道手机快没电了怎么说, 今天终于看到了, the battery is running low . 要是彻底用光了" it is running out of power" or the battery is dead .

  I don’t think we have an urgent need to immediate change the PCB . I think it can be running change until used up old stock.
  running change 在工程变更中常用到, "逐步变更"
  use up 用光
  
  I think we can phase in without any excess inventory
  phase in 逐步应用 , 对应的还有phase out " 停产 " 当有些电子元件升级,旧的就要phase out , 而他的升级产品就phase in .
  inventory : 库存
