Translating a Restaurant Sign
I visited Cambridge at the weekend with my friend, she noticed a sign in a Chinese restaurant. She told me the sign said that this restaurant is Stephen Hawking’s favourite restaurant. This is my attempt at translating it.
The Chinese on the sign is:
物理学家霍金先生最喜欢的中国餐厅Wùlǐ xué jiā huòjīn xiānshēng zuì xǐhuān de zhōngguó cāntīng
I know most of the s characters in this sentence, however there are new characters and words for me. The new words for me are physicist and Hawking.
- 物理学家 – Physicist
- 霍金 – Hawking
The translation is:
The favourite Chinese restaurant of Physicist Mr Hawking.
