翻譯英文文章. . . ( 急 )

The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., which houses the largest collection of books in the world, is fighting a battle against paper deterioration. The pages of the old books are often yellowed and torn. The main culprit is the acidic paper that has been used for making books since the nineteenth century.

Air pollution and moisture have added to the problem. Strangely, the books that are most in danger of destruction are not the oldest books. The paper in books produced before the last century was made from cotton and linen rags, which are naturally low in acid. The Gutenberg Bible, printed five centuries ago, was made of thin calfskin, and is in remarkably good shape. But in the nineteenth century, with widespread literacy bringing a demand for a cheaper and more plentiful supply of paper, the industry began using chemically treated wood pulp to make paper. It is the chemical in this paper that is causing today’s problem.

This problem of paper deterioration is one of global concern. France, Canada, and Austria are all doing research into new methods of deacidification. A new technology has been developed recently that allows for mass deacidification of thousands of books at the same time. It costs less than microfilming and still preserves books in their original form. It is hoped there will soon be treatment facilities all over the world to preserve and deacidify library book collections.

    在華盛頓特區,收容全球的書的最大收集的國會的圖書館,正在進行對抗紙惡化的一場戰爭。 舊書的頁時常被黃色而且撕開。 主要的罪人是已經作為的產生酸的紙自從十九世紀以後製造書。

    空氣污染和溼氣已經增加問題。 奇妙地,是破壞的危險的大部分的書不是最古老的書。 在最後世紀以棉花和亞麻布製的碎布,在酸中自然低為原物料製造之前,在書的紙生產了。

    古騰堡聖經,五世紀前列印,利用瘦小牛的皮做成,而且在顯著好的形狀中。但是在十九世紀內,藉由帶來對一個紙的更便宜而且更更多許多補給的要求的廣大的讀寫能力,工業開始使用施予化學藥劑木材果肉製造紙。 它在正在引起今天的問題的這紙中是化學物質紙惡化的這一個問題是全球擔心之一。 法國、加拿大和奧地利正在全部做研究進入 deacidification 的新方法。 一種新的技術最近已經被發展那同時考慮到數以千計的書的大眾 deacidification。

    它值得比縮影膠片少,而且仍然保護區以他們的最初形式訂購。 一般希望對保護區和 deacidify 圖書館書收集很快將有治療設備在全世界。

    大約是這樣
