最近在翻译P90X3 健身操时遇到这句话,不知道怎么翻译

I don't care that he wasn't perfect out of the box.

You might've done it as well,he made that correction.

最近查看英文技术资料时,老是遇到“out of the box”这串词,从字面来看是跳出框框从外面看的意思,但貌似不对,举两个例子:

a. Gatling是一个测试HTTP服务器的工具,关于它的介绍中有一句:

Out of the box, Gatling comes with excellent support of the HTTP protocol that makes it a tool of choice for load testing any HTTP server.

b. “Why Write Your Own FTP Server?”这篇文章描述了作者自己写一个FTP服务器的原因,其中有一句:

For a very long time I’ve looked for a really simple FTP server that just works, out of the box!






"Out of the box"(开箱即用)也用作"off the shelf"(现货供应)的同义词,其含义是指能够满足一定需求的、已经作好了的软件、硬件或两者的结合形式。如不采用,就需要投入专门的人力物力来开发

"Out of the box" is an expression that describes nonconformal, creative thinking. The term is used as an adverb to describe the thinking or as an adjective to describe the ideas. The term is said to derive from a famous puzzle created by early 20th century British mathematician Henry Ernest Dudeney, in which someone is asked to interconnect nine dots in a three-by-three grid by using four straight lines drawn without the pencil leaving the paper. In order to be successful, the puzzle solver has to realize that the boundries of the dot array are psychological. The only way to solve the puzzle is to extend the lines beyond the artificial boundry created by the nine dots. One also thinks of the expression "boxed-in," or having reduced choices. In the fast-paced world of information technology, employers often say they are looking for someone who "thinks out of the box." Older, related but really different terms include blue skyfar out, and off the wall. A variation is "outside the box."

As you might expect, the term "in the box" is sometimes used to describe conformal thinking. For example, in a recent magazine article about MP3 and music pirating, a manager of some music groups is quoted as saying of major label recording companies who have been slow to adapt to the Internet, "They're always thinking inside of the box."

"Out of the box" is also used as a synonym for "off the shelf," meaning a ready-made software, hardware, or combination package that meets a need that would otherwise require a special development effort.
