這句的意思為何 now is it.

請問以下句子的意思為何?

I decided if there's ever a time to be self-employed, now is it.

第二句是倒裝句嗎??

謝謝!

    No, it is just a simple sentence like

    This is it.

    However, in your question, "this" is replaced with "now".

    我決定,如果有一個時刻是自僱 (自營)的好時機,現在正是時候

    I feel "I decided" translates as "我決定", sounds weird to myself. Therefore, I think, it might be more Chinese to translate as "我判斷"

    To shorten the sentence, or not to use "decide", you could write:

    It is now (time) to start being self-emplyed !

    2012-05-06 11:44:06 補充:

    This way, the meaning of "decide" is embedded in the sentence.

    now is it = 現在就是

    (I think) NOW is the best time to start my own business.

    is simpler English.

    I, thus concluded, if there's ever a good time to be self-employed, now is it.

    is better English.

    now is it => 就是現在!

    now 也是一個名詞,許多字意本身就是名詞‧

    Give me five. 拍一下手

    Give me a high five. 高跳一拍
