Translations of "Compensation"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? 生态保护补偿制度事ecological compensation mechanism.分类补偿制度是classified compensation system 翻译制度的时候什么时候用mechanism 什么时候用system 呢
A: Ecological compensation mechanism的直接翻译是生态补偿机制。而如果说“生态补偿制度”的话应该是ecological compensation system. 所以什么时候用mechanism什么时候用system应该看想表达的语境了,如果想要表达一件事发生时要经历的自然的、自发的程序,则mechanism更适合;如果是表达一种人为规定的、成章法且有定制的程序,则一般用system. 也可以用汉语的语感体会一下“制度”和“机制”两词之间的差别,再运用到英语的语境里即可。
