四六级翻译考察同学们的语言应用能力，所以在考试时，大家应尽量把自己的语言水平表现出来，所以应避免使用一些过于简单的词汇，而选择一些更高级的词汇，例如"have to"可以换成"be obliged to"，"help to"可以换成"contribute to"这样做之后，整个句子会亮眼很多。
这里的搭配主要指一些固定搭配，如“学习知识”不能用"learn knowledge"，而必须用"acquire knowledge"，"concern"后面的介词必须跟"over"而不是"of",这些都是我们要好好学习的地方，可以通过日常积累，比如看英文报刊等等。
很多同学会碰到这样一件事，就是忽然间想不起一个词对应的英文单词是什么。不要急，在这种情况下，放弃是绝对不对的，我们可以另辟蹊径，一种方法是试着用几个词去解释这个单词，二是找个相近的英文单词来代替。如“匿名”对应的单词是"anonymity"，我们可以用"a unknown name"或者直接用同义词"pseudonym"来代替。
译文: It was in mid-August,and the repair section operated under the blazing sun.(一个单句拆分成了一个并列复合句)
译文: He was very clean.His mind was open. (一个单句拆分成两个简单句了)
例3 The mother might have spoken with understandable pride of her child.
例4 I wrote four books in the first three years ,a record never touched before.
译文:She had made several attempts to help them find other rental quarters without success.(多个简单句合成一个单句)
译文：His failure to observe the safety regulations resulted in an accident to the machinery.(并列复合句合成一个单句)
例7 When we praise the Chinese leadership and the people, we are not merely being polite.
译文: We strongly object the company's new policy.
译文: We cannot judge a person by his appearance.
译文:Only five consumers remained in the bar.
译文：This machine is far from being complicated.
由上可见，正译法和反译法主要体现在汉语里是否使用"不"、"非"、"无"、"没有"、"未"、"否"等字眼，或是在英语里是否使用no,not等词或带有dis- ，im- ，in- ，un- ，-less等带否定含义的词缀。读者也可将例1，例2试着用反译法表达出来。结果就是：We strongly disapprove thecompany's new policy.和 Appearances are deceptive.至于两种译法得出的两个译文究竟哪一个更好，就要看译文是否准确规范，简练精辟，是否符合该语言使用者的表达习惯了。
译文: Even when we turn off the bedside lamp and are fast asleep ,electricity is working for us, driving our refrigerators, heating ourwater, or keeping our rooms air-conditioned.
例2 It was a Saturday evening, when Tom was lying on the bench ofthe school listening to a blackbird and composing a lyric, that he sawthe girls running among the trees, with the red-cheeked Joe in swiftpursuit.
原句里一连串出现了一系列的动词如：lying, listening, composing, saw，这是按汤姆进行这些动作的先后顺序来描述的，如果在译文中打乱这些顺序，就反而会显得凌乱，没有逻辑。
译文1:When he attended worship, he always took a certain seat, but they found that he took a different one that day.
译文2:They remarked how he took a different seat from that which he usually occupied when he chose to attend worship.
译文中添加一些原文没有的词句，表面上看似不忠实于原文，但仔细分析就会发现这些增加的词句所表达的意思并非无中生有，而是隐含在原文中的。要知道，从一种语言文字向另一种语言文字转换，有时可以找到一种语言文字在另一种语言文字中的对等词，然而要想全部依赖对等词的转换来达到翻译的目的是几乎不可能的。不同语言文字所持有的习惯决定了必须根据其中一种语言文字的习惯来适当地增词(或减词)达到多语言交际的目的。如果机械地按照字面意义直译，不仅不能表达原文的思想，精神与形象，而且还会使译文前后矛盾，闹出笑话。试想，如把"七擒孟获"机械译成to catch /capture MengHuo for 7 times，不同文化背景的外国读者就很难真正理解这个典故的内涵。
译文: I was very glad on hearing that you were in safety!(增补主语)
译文: It is diligence that makes up for the deficiency. (增补强调句里的it)
译文: Excuse me for interrupting you!(增补作宾语的代词you)
除了在翻译时要注意及时增补语法功能词之外，有时还需要增补与汉语文化内涵相关的信息。如："三个臭皮匠，抵个诸葛亮"应当译文：Threecobblers with their wits combined equal Zhu Geliang, the master mind.译文里the master mind就是个增补注释性表达。否则外国人不可能知道Zhu Geliang是谁。
减词是在不影响原意的情况下省略无关紧要的词语，避免拖泥带水。如"他们开始研究近况，分析近况"中的两个"近况"可以省略一个，只译成They began to study and analyze the recent situation.因为原汉语句中的两个"近况"是为了强调，但英文里如果也译成两个the recent situation，不仅显得罗嗦也不符合英文表达习惯。
译文：This system can be adopted where conditions are ripe and not otherwise.(省略原文中重复出现的词语)
译文：We should reduce unemployment.(省略范畴词"问题")
例3 She laughed and then shrugged her shoulders.
译文1：If we could live an old age, we should keep learning at the old age.
译文2：We'd better keep on learning even though we are old.
译文3：Live and learn.
译文:The book is a reflection of Chinese society in the 1930s.(将汉语动词转换为英语名词)
译文:They were not content with their present achievements.(将汉语动词转换为英语形容词)
译文:I suppose boys think differently from girls.(将汉语动词转换为英语副词)
译文:Are you for or against the plan?(将汉语动词转化为英语介词)
译文:They did their best to help the sick and the wounded.(汉语名词转换为英语副词)
译文:The more carbon the steel contains, the harder and stronger it is.(汉语名词转换为英语形容词表示特征和性质)
译文:This is where you are wrong.(汉语名词转换为英语副词)
译文:I weigh less than I used to.(汉语名词转换为英语动词)
译文:We found difficulty in solving this complicated problem.(汉语形容词转换为英语名词)
译文:Sometimes we have to pay dearly for mistakes.(汉语形容词转换为英语副词)
译文:Independent thinking is an absolute necessity in study.(汉语副词转换为英语名词)
译文:He was a regular visitor.(汉语副词转换为英语形容词)
译文:I succeeded in persuading him.(汉语副词转换为英语动词)
译文：English is a language in which some of important works inscience, technology and other fields are being produced, not always bynative speakers, besides serving the needs of its native speakers.
