求助好心人幫我翻譯一下這段文章~~拜託各位好心人了(急)!

Jacque Patrice, owner of Specialty Timber Company, feels his business is threatened by a tough new competitor. And now Jacque must decide quickly about an offer that may save his business.

Jacque Patrice has been a sales rep for lumber mills for about 20 years. He started selling in a clothing store but gave it up after two years to work in a lumberyard because the future looked much better in the building materials industry. After drifting from one job to another, Jacque finally settled down and worked his way up to manager of a large wholesale building materials distribution warehouse in Buffalo, New York. In 1990, he formed Specialty Timber Company and went into business for himself, selling carload lots of lumber to lumberyards in western New York and Pennsylvania.

Jacque works with five large lumber mills on the West Coast. They notify him when a carload of lumber is available to be shipped, specifying the grade, condition, and number of each size board in the shipment. Jacque isn’t the only person selling for these mills—but he is the only one in his area. He isn’t required to take any particular number of carloads per month—but once he tells a mill he wants a particular shipment, title passes to him and he has to sell it to someone. Jacque’s main function is to find a buyer, buy the lumber from the mills as it’s being shipped, and have the railroad divert the car to the buyer.

    Jacque Patrice, owner of Specialty Timber Company, feels his business is threatened by a tough new competitor.

    Jacque Patrice是一家專業木材公司的老闆,他感到公司的生意受到了同業對手很嚴重的威脅。

    And now Jacque must decide quickly about an offer that may save his business.

    所以現在Jacque必須(選擇)迅速的找出對策(提供一個方案)來拯救他的事業

    Jacque Patrice has been a sales rep for lumber mills for about 20 years.

    Jacque Patrice過去20年裡是一位木料工廠的商業代表

    He started selling in a clothing store but gave it up after two years to work in a lumberyard because the future looked much better in the building materials industry.

    他一開始是在成衣店工作但是兩年後放棄了,他轉行到木材堆放場工作,因為他覺得建築材料工業的前景較被看好

    After drifting from one job to another, Jacque finally settled down and worked his way up to manager of a large wholesale building materials distribution warehouse in Buffalo, New York.

    從一個工作換到另一個工作後,Jacque 最終選擇了在美國紐約水牛城中一家建材批發公司當經理

    In 1990, he formed Specialty Timber Company and went into business for himself, selling carload lots of lumber to lumberyards in western New York and Pennsylvania .

    在1990年中,他組織了一間自己的木材專業公司,販賣用車輛裝好的木料到美國紐約西部和賓夕法尼亞州的木材堆放場

    Jacque works with five large lumber mills on the West Coast.

    Jacque 和五間在西海岸的大型木料工廠合作(工作)

    They notify him when a carload of lumber is available to be shipped, specifying the grade, condition, and number of each size board in the shipment.

    他們當木材可以被裝箱出海時通知他(Jacque)木材明確的等級、狀況和數量及每種木板(木料)的大小

    Jacque isn't the only person selling for these mills—but he is the only one in his area.

    不只有Jacque一個人在賣這些木料,但這個地區中只有他在賣

    He isn’t required to take any particular number of carloads per month—but once he tells a mill he wants a particular shipment, title passes to him and he has to sell it to someone.

    他不需要去對裝車的木料數量做任何確切的統計,一旦他說他要哪些船上的木料,那麼木料的所有權便歸他而他必須要負責把這些木料賣掉

    Jacque's main function is to find a buyer, buy the lumber from the mills as it's being shipped, and have the railroad divert the car to the buyer.

    Jacque的主要工作是去找可以把船上的木料買走的買家並且使鐵路上的車轉向買家

    (最後一句看不懂啦ˊˋ)

    (BTW,翻得很爛請見諒......)

    大大翻的不錯了!

    At least all make sense.

    2009-05-27 12:27:47 補充:

    Last sentence is a bit weird

    [...and have the railroad divert the car to the buyer. ]

    railroad=鐵路

    divert=使轉向;轉移

    翻起來怪怪的。。。這句本來就有問題嗎?@@
