Ida came to America four years ago. Her main reason for coming was to give her 13-year-old son the best education possible. But also, she did not want Perry to meet the wrong kind of people and end up using drugs or joining a gang, or both.

Divorced shortly after Perry's birth, Ida had been a successful entrepreneur in her home country. She had saved a lot of money for their new life in America. Or so she had thought. But two failed business ventures in America had been costly. Had either succeeded, she would have been well off. The second failure was especially painful, because she had known it would leave her with little money.

Her poor English was her downfall. American business people were not patient; they did not want to waste their time trying to figure out what she was trying to say. Equally bad, she couldn't understand their rapid English. She had sadly underestimated how long it would take her to become proficient in English.

Now she was almost broke. Her boyfriend didn't make enough money to support Ida and Perry. She had to go to work. A business executive in her homeland, Ida would try to find work as a waitress in America. "You'll be lucky to make $8 an hour," her boyfriend Tony groused. "What kind of an income is that?"

"Yes, but you're forgetting about the tips. That's where the big money is," she said, laughing. "I'm not upset about working as a waitress. Any work is honorable. I took my chances, and they didn't pan out. Now I have to go to work to pay the bills."

"Well, I don't like it," Tony said.

Tôi sẽ làm việc ở Nhà hàng

Ida đến Mỹ bốn năm trước. Lý do chính để đến Mỹ là để có nền giáo dục tốt nhất cho con trai 13 tuổi của cô. Nhưng cô cũng không muốn Perry gặp người không đúng và cuối cùng sử dụng ma tuý hay gia nhập băng đảng, hay cả hai.

Ly dị ngay sau khi sanh Perry, Ida đã là một doanh nhân thành công ở quê nhà. Cô đã dành dụm nhiều tiền cho cuộc sống mới của cô ở Mỹ. Hay là ít ra cô nghĩ như vậy. Nhưng hai cuộc kinh doanh mạo hiểm thất bại ở Mỹ rất tốn kém. Chỉ một cái thành công cô đã có thể rất tốt. Cú thất bại sau đặc biệt đau, vì cô biết nó chỉ để lại cho cô rất ít tiền.

Anh văn tồi tệ là điểm kéo cô xuống. Doanh nhân Mỹ không kiên nhẫn; họ không muốn tốn thời gian đoán xem cô đang cố nói gì. Cũng tệ như vậy, cô cũng không thể hiểu tiếng Anh quá nhanh của họ. Cô đã buồn rầu đánh giá thấp không biết bao lâu nữa cô mới thông thạo tiếng Anh.

Giờ cô gần như phá sản. Bạn trai cô không làm ra tiền đủ lo cho Ida và Perry. Cô phải đi làm. MỘt nhà điều hành doanh nghiệp ở quê nhà, Ida muốn tìm việc làm phục vụ bàn ở Mỹ. "Em sẽ may mắn kiếm được $8 một giờ," bạn trai Tony càu nhà. "Thu nhập kiểu gì vậy?"

"Vâng, nhưng anh quên tiền tip. Đó là món tiền lớn," có nói, cười. "Em không lo về việc làm phục vụ bàn. Bất cứ công việc nào cũng danh dự. Em sẽ nắm lấy cơ hội, và chúng không xoay chuyển. Giờ em phải đi làm để trả các hoá đơn."

"Này, anh không thích điều đó," Tony nói.

Ida đến Mỹ bốn năm trước đây. Lý do chính của việc đến đây là để cho cậu con trai 13 tuổi của cô được hưởng một nền giáo dục tốt nhất có thể. Nhưng hơn nữa, cô không muốn Perry gặp gỡ những loại người xấu xa và kết thúc với việc sử dụng các loại ma tuý hay gia nhập các băng đảng, hoặc cả hai thứ.

Ly dị nhanh chóng sau khi sinh Perry, Ida là một nhà doanh nghiệp thành công tại quê hương mình. Cô dành dụm được một số tiền lớn cho cuộc sống mới tại Hoa Kỳ. Hoặc cô đã nghĩ như thế. Nhưng hai dự án kinh doanh mạo hiểm thất bại đã tiêu tốn của cô rất nhiều tiền. Hoặc cái này hay cái kia thành công, ắt hẳn cô sẽ được giàu có. Thất bại thứ hai đặc biệt phiền muộn, vì cô biết nó sẽ để lại cho cô có một ít tiền thôi.

Tiếng Anh kém cỏi là nguyên nhân suy sụp của cô. Những doanh nhân Hoa Kỳ không kiên nhẫn; họ không muốn lãng phí thời gian để đoán cô đang cố nói điều gì. Tệ hại tương tự, cô không thể hiểu được tiếng Anh quá nhanh của họ. Cô buồn vì đã đánh giá thấp thời gian học tiếng Anh cho thông thạo.

Bây giờ cô gần như khánh kiệt. Bạn trai cô không kiếm đủ tiền để cấp dưỡng cho Ida và Perry. Cô phải đi làm thôi. Là một giám đốc kinh doanh ở quê nhà, Ida sẽ cố gắng tìm việc làm là một cô hầu bàn ở Mỹ. "Em sẽ may mắn kiếm được 8 đô-la một giờ," Tony, bạn trai của cô cằn nhằn. "Có loại thu nhập gì mà như thế chứ?"

"Vâng, nhưng anh quên mất tiền puôc-boa rồi. Đó là nơi hái ra tiền đó," cô nói, rồi cười lớn. "Em chẳng có gì lo lắng khi làm việc như một người bồi bàn. Công việc nào cũng đáng tôn trọng. Em đã liều thử thời vận, nhưng em đã không thành công. Bây giờ em phải đi làm để trả tiền cho các hoá đơn."

"Được thôi, anh không thích chuyện đó đâu," Tony nói.

I'LL GET A JOB IN A RESTAURANT -

Chị HoangthiQuynhNhu thân mến:

Chị dịch sót một vài ý. Chị xem lại mấy chỗ in đậm:

1. But two failed business ventures in America had been costly.
venture = kinh doanh mạo hiễm.
2. A business enterprise involving some risk in expectation of gain.
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/venture


2. Had either succeeded, she would have been well off.
Câu này đúng là câu điều kiện( trợ động từ 'had' được đảo ra trước) nhưng dịch sót đại từ 'either'
either = hoặc 1 trong 2/ hoặc cái này hay cái kia...
ei•ther
pron.
The one or the other: Which movie do you want to see? Either will be fine.
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/either


3. She had sadly underestimated how long it would take her to become proficient in English.
Câu này theo mình nghĩ là:
Cô ta đánh giá thấp/sai thời gian học tiếng Anh cho thông thạo = cô ta cho là học tiếng Anh chỉ cần một thời gian ngắn là đủ giỏi và tự cho mình đủ giỏi để bước vào kinh doanh ở Mỹ, và điều đó, đáng buồn là đã sai!

Chị nên dịch lấy ý.

4. I took my chances, and they didn’t pan out.
'they' thay thế cho 'chances'
pan out = be successful
Phrasal Verb:
pan out
To turn out well; be successful: "If I don't pan out as an actor I can still go back to school"
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/pan+out


Chúc chị vui khoẻ.
Thân

Hi, anh phamdinhphung,

Bài dịch này quả thực là khó. Có một vài từ như pan out, mình tra hoài mà không tìm ra được, tới lúc tìm được thì không chính xác.

Và các câu: Or so she had thought; She had sadly underestimated how long it would take her to become proficient in English; Had either succeeded, she would have been well off. Thật khó để hiểu và dịch cho đúng nếu không có sự giúp đỡ của anh.

Mình đã sửa lại rồi, anh xem đã chỉnh chưa nhé.

Thanks và chúc anh vui khoẻ.

Chị HoangThiQuynhNhu: xin gợi ý thêm với chị:

I took my chances, and they didn't pan out = Em đã liều thử thời vận nhưng vận may đã không xảy ra/ nhưng em đã không thành công...

Thân

Hi, anh phamdinhphung,

Câu này dịch nghe hay và hợp lý hơn.

Cám ơn anh rất nhiều.

ESL đăng ký: Bạn không cần phải đăng ký gì cả. Chỉ việc nhẩy vào bài ESL 1 học và làm bài tập. Tiếp tục những bài kế tiếp càng nhanh càng tốt. Mình sẽ 888 và thỉnh thoảng cùng nhau nhắc nhở cho vui hén. Chứ thật ra việc học là việc của tự bản thân mình. Mình giỏi thì mình được nhờ hén.
