可唔可以幫我翻譯做英文?

大嶼山(中國大陸稱為大濠島,視為萬山群島的一部份)位於香港西南面,是香港境內最大的島嶼,面積144平方公里,比香港島大84%。大嶼山大部分地區屬於離島區,但大嶼山東北部,包括陰澳、竹篙灣、汲水門等,在地區行政上屬於荃灣區。

大嶼山過去由於交通不便、遠離市區,所以不少土地都未開發;但因此成為了香港人度假的好去處。隨著與赤鱲角新機場相關的香港機場核心計劃落成,青馬大橋(含地鐵東涌綫及機場快綫)及汲水門大橋把大嶼山及市區連接起來,以及東涌新市鎮的開發,使前往大嶼山變得更容易。

名稱

於宋朝時,大嶼山和香港島等島嶼合稱為大奚山。明朝東莞人鄧淳著的《嶺南叢述》就有提到「大奚山,三十六嶼,在莞邑海中,水邊岩穴,多居屹蠻種類,或傳係盧循遺種,今名盧亭,亦曰盧餘」。

大嶼山亦稱大溪山、大姨山、大崳山、大魚山、大漁山、屯門島及爛頭島。[1] [2]大嶼山的英文名「Lantau」正是粵語「爛頭」的音譯。雖然「嶼」字的廣東話正音同「罪」(zeoi6),但「大嶼山」則讀成「魚」(yu4)。這是因為大嶼山舊名「大魚」、「大漁」、「大俞」等,皆是「魚」音,「大嶼山」一名是從清朝道光年間才開始的官方名稱。

    Located on the southwestern part of Hong Kong waters, Lantau Island with a size of 144 square km is the biggest island of the SAR and is 84% bigger than Hong Kong Island itself. It is otherwise known as Dahao Island by mainland China which sees it as a part of the Wanshan group of islands. Adminstratively speaking, most of the island is part of the Outlying Islands District but its northeastern part which includes locations like Yam O, Chuk Ko Bay and Kap Sui Mun is part of Tsuen Wan District.

    With its remote location and limited tranportation acess, Lantau Island had seen little urban development in the past which made it a popular destination for local holiday makers. After the completion of the Hong Kong Airport Core Programme which includes a new international airport in Chek Lap Kok, Lantau Island is now connected to the urban area by the Tsing Ma Bridge (which houses the Tung Chung Line of MTR and the Airport Express) and the Kap Sui Mun Bridge. A new town is also built in Tung Chung. With all these developments, Lantau Island is no longer considered a remote location.

    Name

    During the Song Dynasty (960AD-1279AD), Lantau Island was seen as part of the Daxishan (which is close to Tai-yu-shan, the most widely accepted Cantonese name of Lantau Island) group of islands which included Hong Kong and some other neigbouring islands. In a book on the geography of southern China penned by Deng Chun, an author from Dongguan during the Ming Dynasty (1368AD-1644AD), there is the desciption of "a group of 36 islands collectively known as Daxishan". "The islands are located in the waters under the administration of the township of Dongguan. In their seaside caves there lives barbaric tribes known as Luting or Luyu who some believe are the descendents of the rebels led by Lu Xun." Deng wrote.

    Lantau Island has been called by different names in local language. Apart from Tai-yu-shan and its variants, Lan Tau, meaning favus scars on the head, is another local name which also gives the island its name in English.

    Tai-yu-shan, the Chinese / Cantonese name of Lantau Island, is the only case in which the Chinese character 嶼 is pronounced as "yu", while in other cases it should be read as "zeoi".

    2010-11-17 13:16:12 補充:

    It is because the island has been calledas such by most locals for hundreds of years despite the random use of different written forms. When the official written form carrying the character 嶼 was accepted in mid-Qing Dynasty (around early 19th century), the pronouncation remained unchanged.

    最後一段的資料主要是官方譯音, 在政府網站都找到, 我想不用幫你譯了.

    關於大嶼山中文名 / 古籍記載的那一段, 有大量資料和中國文字有關, 我用了很大工夫譯為英文, 同時把內容修改得適合外國人閱讀.

    但對一般外國人介紹, 資料也許不用那麼詳細
