我翻译了一段话,有人指出说as early as后面不可以用完成时,应该改成过去时。
这个词组很早以前学过,应该用什么时态已经不大记得了,家里的书里也查不到,在搜索引擎上搜也没有搜到什么东西,看到的几个句子都是讲的现在或将来的,涉及到过去的各有一个句子是用的完成时和一般过去时,请还记得的同志赐教!

you can use either past tense or past (present) perfect tense depending on how the verb is related to the time being referenced. for instance,
i began drinking as early as age six.
this has been reported on a regular basis since as early as 19xx and the reporting will be continued until 20xx.
the statue had been there as early as the turn of the 20th century before it was torn down last month.

按三楼的意思,能不能接完成时完全取决于那个动词,如果是属于瞬间动词就不可以,而不是和as early as这个词组表示的时态有关罗?

我翻译的这句话是:
早在20世纪60年代,中国的学者就开始进行投入产出技术的研究。
我翻译的是:
As early as 1960s, China's scholars have started the research on the input-output technology.
他是这样说我的:
China's scholars have started ... 是一个现在完成时态,你此处对时间概念的表达(他指的是as early as)是谓语为过去时态的时间状语,前后矛盾。其实,此处应采用现在完成时来翻译,因为从那以后,中国学者至今一直还在进行这方面的工作,只是在时间状语的表达上要有现在完成时的铺垫,所以应该改为,since early 1960s....


他的意思就是说as early as这个就不能跟完成时,而且他后面还说我漏译了20世纪,难道1960s还不能清楚的表明这是20世纪么?
而且他改的since early 1960s....也有问题,人家只是说早在20世纪60年代,又没有说是60年代早期,怎么可以随便加early呢?

MY idea

In my opinon, "as early as" 始终是个过去的时间, 所以应该用与过去相对应的时态;

另外, 我认为1960s 已经表达了意思.
