Are you serious?

这是在开玩笑吧

 

On the top of Jack’s ridiculous severance package,we spent a thousand dollars on each one of your fucking monitors?

撇开杰克天高的遣散费不说,你们一台荧幕竟然要一千美金

Ridiculous 美 [rɪ’dɪkjələs]adj. 可笑的;荒谬的

 

We did? Huh.That’s very pricey

真的啊 竟然这么贵

 

So what? Raviga funded us for $5 million

又怎样?拉维贾不是给了我们五百万吗

 

There’s no way we burned through all that

那么大笔钱又不可能马上烧光

 

Do you have any idea how these deals work? That money’s tranched

你到底懂不懂创业投资?资金是分批次的好吗?

 

What’s that?

什么意思

 

Well from the Old French for “slice”

古法文中“切割”的意思

 

Yeah,try to keep up,Dinesh

学着点,迪内许

 

We get our money in stages

资金是分阶段拨配的

 

Right? We get $2 million upfront to get us going to design and build the product but we don’t get the next three million until we take a product to market

首期我们先拿到两百万创业,用来设计和建立产品,剩下的三百万,要等到产品上市才领的到

 

And Jack was okay with hemorrhaging money because he thought we were launching the box

And then getting the next three million in the next few weeks

杰克当时花钱如流水因为他看准储存盒一定会上市

咬定三百万往后几周就能到手

Hemorrhage  美 [‘hɛmərɪdʒ]. vt. [病理] 出血 ;损失

 

But the platform will take way longer to launch than that

但平台要上市还要很久吧

 

Yes.So we are effectively a $250 million company

who just took $5 million in funding 

and now we’re dead-ass broke

对啊,我们是市值两亿五千万的公司,

好不容易拿到五百万资金,现在却破产

 

Our burn rate is astronomical 

And every day we sit in limbo like this

每天坐在这里等死

资金消耗率只会高的吓人

Astronomical 美 [,æstrə’nɑmɪkl]adj. 天文的,天文学的;极大的

 

What if we don’t?

若不这么做呢?

 

What if we don’t sit in limbo?

若不坐在这边等死呢?

 

Like fuck limbo,right

这就是等死啊

 

I mean right now, let’s...let’s fire all these fucking sales assholes

And break the lease on this place and get the fuck out of here

现在就把外面的死业务全部开除,办公室也退租

 

Can we do that?

There’s no CEO here to approve any of that

这样行吗?又没有执行官点头同意

 

Yeah. There’s also no CEO here to tell me not to do it,right?

没错,但也没有执行官说不行啊

 

That’s right. You’re the CEO

你说得对,身为技术官

 

Technically you’re the ranking officer

你也算是官阶了

 

Fucking A

还是大官呢

 

Look,when,or  if,a new CEO comes to take over the company, we will do what they say to the best of our abilities

若届时真有新执行官接手管理

我们就尽全力配合

 

But there is a very real possibility

但我们现在若不采取行动

 

That there won’t be a company for them to take over

届时他可能也没有公司能管了

 

If we don’t do something about it now

从今天起

 

So,no more surprise waffles

不准吃惊喜松饼了

 

What?

什么?

 

No more Chef Amy

没有艾美主厨了

 

No

不要吧

 

And no more of these stupid offices,okay?

这些蠢办公室也不要了

 

We’re going to move back to the hostel

我们搬回去小窝

 

Fuck

不要嘛

 

Dinesh

迪内许

 

We need to cut every corner ,save every penny and plow it into engineers to build the platform.Okay?

我们要不择手段省钱,雇佣工程团队来建平台

 

Then we will be back on track

这样一切才会上轨道

 

So Gilfoyle ,Dinesh, pack up those

 gold-plated monitors because we are selling them

吉佛尔,迪内许,把那些镶金的荧幕打包好把它们通通卖掉

 

Jared ,come on. Let’s do this

来吧,杰瑞,我们去开除大家
