Hey, Matt. I heard your new job lets you work remotely.


嘿,Matt。我听说你的新工作可以远程办公。


Yes, I'm loving it. It's great having flexibility and autonomy over my work.
是的,我很喜欢这点。有工作灵活性和自主权很好。


That's great! Isn't it hard without face-to-face interactions, though?

那可真好!不过,没有面对面的交流不会很困难吗?


We mitigate that pretty well by leveraging collaboration tools we already had, like Slack and Zoom.
通过利用我们已有的协作工具,如Slack和Zoom,我们很好地缓解了这一问题。


That's cool. Weren't you more productive in an office?

那真棒。你在办公室里不是更有效率吗?


Not at all. Offices have lots of productivity constraints. And, since we're judged only on our output, it actually keeps people from slacking off.
完全不是。办公室有很多对工作效率的制约。而且,因为只根据产出来评估我们,实际上可以阻止人们偷懒。


I still like the camaraderie you get from being with coworkers.
我还是喜欢和同事一起工作的情谊。


As long as you like your coworkers! We do have a physical office we can visit, and we have team-building retreats as well.
只要你喜欢你的同事就好!我们确实有一间可以去的实体办公室,并且我们也有团建活动。


Seems like they're working out the kinks. I can definitely see that it lets companies tap into a far bigger global talent pool.
看来它们能解决问题。我可以清楚地看到,这让公司能发掘一个更大的全球人才库。


For sure. Insofar as they can, more and more companies are exploring this or some hybrid of it.
当然了。在能力范围内,越来越多的公司正探索这种或混合的办公方式。


I think it's going to look like a different world in ten years!
我想十年后世界会变得很不同!



Grammar | 语法点

Insofar as/that


In today's program we saw the adverbial phrase "insofar as." This phrase can also be a conjunction and means "to the extent that." In fact, it can even be replaced by the shorter phrase "as far as." The phrase "insofar as" is formal, but if you drop it carefully into a casual conversation, it's great for making you sound smart. Example situation:


在今天的节目中,我们看到了副词短语"insofar as"。这个短语也可以作连词,意思是"to the extent that (到...程度)"。实际上,它也可以被短一点的"as far as"代替。"insofar as"很正式,但如果你在日常对话里小心使用它,会使你听上去很机智。例如:
My friend only reads articles insofar as they support her own ideas.我的朋友只读那些支持她自己想法的文章。
It's usually almost always "insofar as," but you may also see "insofar that" followed by another complete clause.
一般我们用到的都是"insofar as",但有时也有用"insofar that"后面接完整的从句。
I'll do my best to support you insofar that I'm able to.我会尽我所能来支持你。
