M: Hello, Jane.
W: Hello, Paul.
M: Please come in. I'm just getting ready to go home. Susan is expecting me for dinner. I wanted to be on time for a change.
男：请进 。我正准备要回家 。苏珊在家等着我吃晚饭呢 。我想改变一下，准时回家 。
W: Look, I'm terribly sorry to drop in at this time on Friday, Paul, but it is rather important.
M: That's OK. What's the problem?
W: Well, Paul, I won't keep you long. You see there is a problem with the exchange rates. The Indian Rupee has taken a fall on the foreign exchange market. You see there has been a sharp increase in Indian's balance of payment deficit.
女：保罗，我不会耽误你太长时间的 。汇率出了点儿问题 。印度卢比在外汇市场下跌 。印度的国际收支逆差急剧增加 。
M: I see. That's serious, isn't it?
W: Well, as you know, there have been reports of unrest India, and the prospects for the Rupee look pretty gloomy.
M: And that's going to affect us, as if we didn't have enough problems on our hands.
W: So I thought it would be wise to take out forward exchange cover to protect our position on the outstanding contracts.
M: Just a minute. Forward exchange cover? Now what does that mean exactly?
W: Well, it means that JO Motors enters into a commitment to sell Indian Rupees at the present rate.
女：就是说JO Motors承诺用现在的汇率出售印度卢比 。
M: I see. And how will that benefit us?
W: Well, JO Motors won't lose out if the Indian Rupee falls further.
女：即使印度卢比继续下跌，JO Motors也不会吃亏 。
M: What will it cost, Jane?
W: A small percentage, about 1% and that can be built into the price of the bike.
M: Well, I don't suppose there is much choice. All right, Jane, let's put it into action.
男：我想我们没有太多的选择 。好吧，简，我们就这么办吧 。
