關於服務業英文翻譯,matter of的用法,請達人幫忙檢查

想請英文達人幫我看看我翻得好不好,我有點搞不清楚hundredths在這裡的意思,也不知道下面第二個的段落為什麼要在hundredths前面要加上matter of,只能用我理解的方式翻,但不知道翻得正不正確,麻煩大家幫我檢查一下,順便說明一下hundredths在這的用意,3Q...Orz

Any person, who witnessed an Olympic swimming race, or a 100-meter sprint competition on the track, or a Formula 1 car race, knows that the winner comes first by a few hundredths of a second. It’s really wonderful to see all strive, just by a few hundredths…

任何見證過奧林匹克游泳比賽、百米競賽、或是F1賽車的人,都知道這些勝利者都是從第二名辛苦追上來的。能夠從百人中獲勝,之前再怎麼辛苦都值得了!

The same thing is happening in all areas of service industry. Most of our competitors design and sell excellent products and services, and excel in serving the customers. Differentiation today is a matter of hundredths. The one who lose two or three hundredths it’s out of business. 在服務業,商品和服務內容大部分都沒有什麼分別,許多競爭同業都會設計傑出的產品和提供優質的售後服務,但卻少了為顧客服務的熱誠,因而失去了在業界生存的機會。

    Your translation is very good (except missed a few words). My translation is more straightforward and you should modified it once you understand the core meaning of the article.

    ========================

    Any person, who witnessed an Olympic swimming race, or a 100-meter sprint competition on the track, or a Formula 1 car race, knows that the winner comes first by a few hundredths of a second.

    任何 見證過奧林匹克游泳比賽、百米競賽、或是F1賽車 的人,都知道這些勝利都是只有百分之幾秒的區別。

    It’s really wonderful to see all strive, just by a few hundredths…

    這真是美妙看到所有努力,只是由百分之幾秒決定

    The same thing is happening in all areas of service industry.

    同樣激烈的競爭也在服務業的各個領域發生。

    Most of our competitors design and sell excellent products and services, and excel in serving the customers.

    許多競爭同業都會設計傑出的產品和提供優質的售後服務,贏得了客戶的生意。

    Differentiation today is a matter of hundredths.

    贏及輸之間的差異很小

    The one who lose two or three hundredths it’s out of business.

    這些非常小的差別讓他們在業界失去了生存的機會。
