Woman:What would you say is the company's strength?

女:你认为公司的优势是什么?
Man: It certainly helps that we supply those large retailers I mentioned, and in fact some of them have been customers for years. I suppose, though, that we wouldn't have survived this long if it wasn't for the fact that we won't send anything out unless it meets very exacting standards. Our customers appreciate that, plus the fact that we aim to keep rhe time from order to deliver very short, and they're prepared to pay a premium for it.
男:我们为刚才提到的那些大型零售商供货当然是有帮助的,事实上,其中一些零售商已经成为我们多年的客户。但是,我觉得,是一件事情让我们存活了这么久,那就是,如果产品不符合非常严格的标准,我们就不会发货。我们的客户很欣赏这一点,而且,我们会把交货时间控制住很短的时间内,客户也愿意为此支付额外的费用。
Woman:What about weaknesses?
女:公司的劣势是什么?
Man:Well, we've got a poor record in providing training on the machines we're currently using. And I have to say that Stephen used to run the company in a very old-fashioned, autocratic way, which alienated a lot of the workers. Despite Catherine’s more enlightened approach, it’s an uphill struggle to try to change attitudes and improve co-operation.
男:我们在目前使用的机器上提供培训方面的记录很差。而且史蒂芬经常以一种老式的、独裁的方式经营公司,这疏远了很多员工。尽管凯瑟琳采取了更为开明的方式,但要想改变人们的态度、增进合作,仍是一场艰难的斗争。
Woman:Never an easy task!
女:这从不是个简单的任务!
Man: No.
男:不简单。
Woman:You mentioned on the phone that there's a problem with a particular group of workers.
女:你在电话上提到,有一部分工人存在一个问题。
Man: Yes, there's a very high turnover among the machinists, that's the people who actually make the clothes. They say they've faced with unreasonable demands all the time, like having to learn to operate several machines instead of just one or two. Many of them think they could get an easier job for the money, because there are plenty of other jobs on offer locally. The reasonably healthy state of our order books gives them a certain amount of job security, but they just don't seem to care.
男:对,机械师岗位有很高的流动率,这些人就是做衣服的人。他们说他们总是面临着不合理的要求,比如,他们不得不学习操作多台机器,而不是一两台。他们中的很多人认为,在同等薪资下他们可以找到更轻松的工作,因为当地还有很多其他工作机会。我们订单的良好状况给了他们一定的工作保障,但他们似乎并不在意。
