T: Good afternoon, Mr. Wang.
W: Good afternoon, Mr. Tom.
T: I am here today in the hope of signing the contract under discussion.
W: You are here just in time. I was wondering just now when you will come. Please have a seat.
T: Thank you. Did you get the contract fully prepared?
W: Yes, it is ready. I am waiting for you to go over it and see if you have any further supplement and modification. If there is no problem, we can sign it.
王：是的，准备好了。就等着你们再过 目一下，看看还有没有要补充和修改的。如果没问题，我们就可以签 字了。
T: Your work efficiency is really high. Let me have a look. (After looking at it carefully) The contract stipulations include almost all the major items we talked about, so I think it is fine. The only thing left is the implementation of the contract.
汤姆：你们办事效率挺高的。让我看一 下。(看过后)合同条款几乎包括 了我们谈的所有主要问题，我觉得 没什么问题了。剩下的就是合同的 执行问题了。
W: Well, that is great. Once the contract is signed, it is established and we should observe the terms in it. We will be sure to act according to the contract. Wish you do the same.
王：嗯，那就好。一旦我们签字，合同 就成立了，我们就应该遵守合同的 条款。我们一定会按合同的要求行 事的。希望你们也是。
T: You can rest assured. We should have confidence in each other, shouldn't we?
W: Yes, that is quite right. Let's put our signature here now.
T: OK. I am so glad that we finally concluded this transaction successfully.
J: Good morning. This is my business card.
Z: Good morning. What can I do for you?
J:I got the draft contract you sent us by e-mail. After looking at it carefully, we found there are some things we can't accept. So it needs reconsideration.
Z: Then let us sit down and have a good talk about it. What are the things you can't accept?
J: About packing,I think your packing is too humble, and have no grade.
Z:We design it on the principle of simpleness. But if you don't like it, we can take your proposal into consideration. There is nothing difficult about it. What else?
我们是本着简单朴实的原则设计的。不过如 果你们不喜欢，我们可以考虑你们的'提议。 这个没什么难的。还有什么吗?
J:We feel that Clause 5 in the contract is too hard on us, so we hope you can give it up. If you can do this, we can sign the contract now.
合同条款的第5顶我们觉得对我们太苛刻 了，我希望你们能放弃。如果你们可以做 到，我们就可以签合同了。
Z:I'm afraid we can't meet your requirement. This is the most fundamental condition on which we sign the contract.
J:In that case, we cannot reach an agreement, and have to cancel the contract.
Z:I feel very sorry, too. But there is no way out. It seems we have to find another partner respectively.
J:I hope we will have the chance to work together in the future.
Z:Good. So do I.
