수퍼 노트


화폐는 당대 인류의 인쇄술과 지혜가 총 집약된 산물이다. 화폐보안이 뚫리면 국가 경제와 사회 질서는 뿌리째 흔들리게 된다. 그러니 세계의 기축통화 노릇을 하는 미국 달러화는 오죽하겠는가. 100달러권 도안의 선 굵기는 0.01㎜ 단위다. 육안으로는 보이지 않는 특수 무늬와 선이 여기저기 감춰져 있다. 잉크는 우주선 창문에 사용하는 특수 소재를 쓴다. 이 같은 보안장치들을 비웃듯 감쪽같이 복제한 것이 ‘수퍼 노트’다.

내가 한 영작
A banknote is a combination of printing technology and ⓐwisdom of the time. If the security measures ⓑof banknotes are penetrated, a country’s economy and social order are ⓒshaken. It’s even more serious for the U.S. dollar as the greenback acts as the world’s key currency. The image of a $100 bill is drawn with 0.01-milimeter fine lines. Special patterns, not visible to the naked eye, are hidden ⓓhere and there. The ink used is a high-tech substance that can be found on spaceships. In spite of such measures, however, supernotes - nearly perfect counterfeits - ⓔwas successfully create, mocking the latest in anti-counterfeit technology.

A banknote is a combination of printing technology and know-how of the time. If the security measures for banknotes are penetrated, a country’s economy and social order are threatened. It’s even more serious for the U.S. dollar as the greenback acts as the world’s key currency. The image of a $100 bill is drawn with 0.01-millimeter fine lines. Special patterns, not visible to the naked eye, are hidden around the bill. The ink used is a high-tech substance that can be found on spaceships. In spite of such measures, however, supernotes - nearly perfect counterfeits - have been successfully created, mocking the latest in anti-counterfeit technology.

Writing Tip
ⓐ wisdom → know-how 한국어 그대로의 번역을 영어에 자연스러운 표현으로 수정. 참고로 ‘know-how’는 오랫동안 축적되어온 기술이나 방법을 나타냄
ⓑ of → for ‘획득, 추구’의 의미를 지닌 전치사 ‘for’로 수정
ⓒ shaken → threatened 한국어 그대로의 번역을 영어에 자연스러운 표현으로 수정
ⓓ here and there → around the bill 지폐의 곳곳에 숨겨져 있다는 의미이므로 문맥에 알맞게 수정
ⓔ was successfully created → have been successfully created 과거에 있었던 사실을 서술하는 것이 아니라, 여전히 위조지폐가 계속 만들어지고 있음을 나타내고 있으므로 현재완료형으로수정

수퍼 노트 문제가 불거진 2005년 노무현 정부는 미국의 주장을 100% 수용하지 않았다. 위조 달러를 명분으로 내세운 미국의 대북 압박과 제재를 달갑게 여기지 않았기 때문이다. 당시 미국 재무부 측의 브리핑을 받은 한국 외교관이 “북한이 위조했다는 확증을 제시해 달라”고 하자 미국 관리가 “어느 위조범이 위폐에다 ‘made in (north) Korea’라고 새기겠느냐”며 불쾌감을 표시했다고 한다.

In 2005, when the supernote issue was first raised, the former Roh Moo-hyun administration was dubious about the U.S.’s claims. The Roh administration was against putting pressure and imposing sanctions on the North in reaction to suspicions North Korea ⓐresponsible for the ⓑsupernote. When briefed by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, a Korean diplomat requested solid evidence that North Korea had ⓒforged supernotes. An American official retorted by asking what kind of foolish criminal minds in Pyongyang would print “Made in North Korea” on counterfeit notes.

Writing Tip
ⓐ responsible → was responsible ‘suspicions’ 다음에 that이 생략된 절에 동사가 생략되어 있으므로 ‘was’ 추가
ⓑ supernote → supernotes 문맥상 한 가지 이상의 위조지폐를 나타내고 있으므로 복수형으로 수정
ⓒ forged → created 수퍼 노트 자체가 위조된 지폐를 나타내고 있으므로 의미의 중복을 피하기 위해 ‘created’로 수정
