你还会用笔写字吗?

天哪!我忘记怎么写字了!
Help! I've forgotten how to write
我潦草的字迹越来越难辨认。我不会是唯一一个高兴地永远扔掉钢笔的大人吧?书法是一门走向消亡的艺术吗?我们真的在乎它吗?
It's getting harder to read my scribble. Surely I can't be the only non-teenager who would happily give up the pen for good?
上周我写了很多字,我指的是把我的名字在一些公文上写了几十次。当这项苦差事完成后,我仍然两次停下来问我的秘书:“还有没有?”。我的手都痉挛了,不得不不停的抖动我的右手。
I did a lot of writing the other week. By which I mean I signed my name a dozen times on some official papers. And I still stopped twice to ask the woman on the other side of the desk, "Is there much more?" When the ordeal was over, I had to shake my right hand for a good 30 seconds to get rid of the cramp.
因此,我为书写的和与之相关的人类的一些精神渐渐消亡感到痛惜不已。(英国考试工作人员表示传统的手写考试的有效性成为一个焦点问题,因为现在的青少年打字比手写更轻松。)
So I can't get too worked up about the laments that handwriting is dying, and that a little bit of the human soul is dying with it. (England's exam regulator has suggested there is an "issue of validity" with traditional paper exams, because today's teenagers are more comfortable typing at a keyboard than writing by hand.)
确实,手写呈现下滑趋势。讲述书法的兴衰的《字体与涂写》的作者基蒂·伯恩斯·弗洛里表示,教师们发现学生一边读一边写学的更容易。同时,一旦我们失去了使用纸和笔的能力,我们再也不能解读前人的情书只是一个时间问题。如果只有专业学者可以领会前人的信件,世界将会多么可怜!
There is a downside, it's true. According to Kitty Burns Florey, author of Script and Scribble: The Rise and Fall of Handwriting, teachers report that children learn to read more easily when they write the words they are studying. And once we lose the ability to use a pen and paper, it's only a matter of time until we can no longer decipher previous generations' billets-doux. The world will be poorer if only academics get sentimental about Great-Grandad's letters from the front.
我一定不是唯一一个永久地扔掉钢笔而仍旧高兴的大人。我们这一代(我已经近50岁)上学的时候电脑、家用打印机、数字录音机还没有兴起。我们用手记课堂笔记;手写我们的作文。几十年过去了,我们仍旧能都读懂。但是我们中的许多人很早之前就开始依赖电脑、手机了。这不仅是我们几乎不会书写的问题,而同时也会是我们不能读书的问题。如果手写已成为过去,为它打一份死亡证明吧。
But I can't be the only non-teenager who would still happily ditch the pen for good. My generation (I'm in my late 40s) went to school before the rise of the PC, the home printer and digital recorder. We took our class notes by hand; we wrote our essays by hand. Decades later, we can still read these. But many of us long ago surrendered to the computers and mobile phones that surround us. It's not just that we can barely write any more – when we do, we can barely read it. If handwriting is dying, type out the death certificate.
