 This is an absolute monarchy. Its crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, was appointed by his father, King Salman, two years ago. And since then, the nation has gone through what one CNN reporter describes a top to bottom overhaul.

这是一个君主制的国家。两年前,父亲萨尔曼国王任命儿子穆罕默德本萨尔曼为王储。之后,沙特经历的过程就如一位CNN记者描述的那样“最彻底的变革”。

We reported in late September how the government had decided to allow women to drive. Saudi Arabia was the last nation on earth where that was illegal, but it`s also what experts call one of the most religiously conservative Islamic countries, and there were some Saudis who disagreed with the decision.

9月份我们曾报道沙特政府决定允许女性开车。沙特阿拉伯是世界上唯一一个女性开车不合法的国家,专家也称其实最保守的伊斯兰宗教国家,但是对于上述举措,一些沙特公民并不同意。

Crown Prince bin Salman has promised to destroy what he called extremist ideologies and work to return Saudi Arabia to a, quote, more moderate Islam. He`s trying to reshape Saudi Arabia`s economy, reducing its dependence on oil sales.

沙特王储本萨尔曼承诺要摧毁所谓的极端主义意识形态,并努力让沙特阿拉伯回归为温和的伊斯兰教。他试图重塑沙特的经济,减少对石油销售的依赖。

沙特一直领导国际组织打击恐怖主义。以恐怖主义罪名处死数十人。同时也在也门的内战中发挥了重要的地位,在战役中,沙特领导了国际空袭,在伊朗的支持下打击试图控制也门的反政府武装。

The nation is leading in international group to fight terrorism. It`s executed dozens of people on terrorism charges. It`s playing a major role in the civil war of neighboring Yemen, with Saudi Arabia leading international airstrikes, targeting rebels who were supported by Iran and trying to take control of Yemen.

上周末,超过17名沙特王子和高级政府官员因腐败指控被捕。其中包括那些阿拉伯世界中最富有的人。

And over the weekend, more than 17 Saudi princes and top government officials were arrested on corruption charges. This includes people who`ve been described as some of the wealthiest figures in the Arab world.

专家和批评人士一直在用震惊、历史性、甚至革命性的词语描述这一切。全球范围来看,沙特阿拉伯的变革褒贬不一,有批判、赞扬、警示以及信任。

Regarding all of this, experts and observers have been using words like shocking, historic and even revolutionary. And globally, Saudi Arabia`s changes have been met with criticism, as well as praise, and caution, as well as trust.
