The British government is to launch a social media dictionary so parents can translate popular acronyms used by teenagers online.

英国政府将发布一部社交媒体用语词典,以帮助家长翻译青少年在网上使用的流行缩写词。

The language guide decodes terms such as GNOC (get naked on camera) and ASL (age, sex, location) which are often used by youngsters using anonymous chat rooms.

在匿名聊天室聊天的年轻人经常使用类似GNOC(在镜头前脱光)、ASL(年龄,性别,地点)这样的词,有了这部词典,就能“破译”这些缩略词了。

The tool will help eagle-eyed parents spot when their child issues a P999, also known as a parent alert, to make their online friends aware their parents are around.

有了这部词典,孩子们发送P999(指家长警报,告诉网友父母在身边)时,警觉的父母一眼就能发现。

Other definitions include zerg (to gang up on someone), POS (parents over shoulder), PAL (parents are listening and 420 (marijuana).

其他的词还包括 zerg(合伙对付某人),POS(家长在身后),PAL(家长在听),420(大麻)。

The guide is part of Parent Info, an online service announced on September 7 by the Department for Education. It aims to provide tips on navigating teenage life and give adults the confidence to talk about sensitive topics with their children.

9月7日,英国教育部发布了一项名为“家长须知”的在线服务,该指南是其中一部分。这项服务旨在为青少年的生活提供引导,让家长有把握与孩子探讨敏感话题。

Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities Nicky Morgan said it was crucial that parents were educated on how to keep their children safe online.

教育大臣兼妇女及平等事务部大臣尼基·摩根(Nicky Morgan)表示,指导家长如何保护孩子安全上网很重要。

She said: 'The internet is an incredibly powerful tool, which is changing the way our children learn and stay in touch. But we must also make sure we do everything we can to help them stay safe online. As a parent myself, I understand how important it is to know your child is safe and that's why this new online service is so important.

她说道:“互联网是一个非常强大的工具,它正在改变着孩子的学习、交流方式。但我们也要尽可能保证他们的上网安全。我自己也有孩子,所以我知道,确保孩子的安全对父母来说有多重要,因此,这项新的网络服务非常重要。

'I hope all schools take advantage of this new resource, which addresses fundamental issues like cyber bullying and body confidence - so that they can help protect their children in this digital age.'

“这项新服务能应对诸如网络欺凌、建立身体自信等重要问题,在这个数据化时代,我希望所有学校都能利用这个新资源来保护孩子。”

The website has been developed by the National Crime Agency's Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and The Parent Zone, founded in 2005 to provide support to parents.

该网站由英国国家犯罪调查局所属的儿童虐待及网络保护中心及家长空间联合开发,后者成立于2005年,旨在为家长提供帮助。

Its newsfeed, including regular articles, will be integrated into school websites, and can also be accessed at www.parentinfo.org.

可以从各学校的网站浏览该网站的新闻推送和日常文章,或者直接上www.parentinfo.org上浏览。
