Take something offline 私下再談

今日片語

職場中,當上級在會議等場合中使用短語 「take something offline」 時,是在告訴某人 「不要再談論一件事情,會後私下再說」。這個短語經常與 「let’s」 搭配,用來表示命令或請求,即 「Let’s take it offline.(讓我們私下裡談這件事情)」。

例句

I understand that this is a really important issue for you, Sandra, but it’s not the focus of this meeting. Let’s take it offline and talk about it afterwards.
我知道這對你來說是一個非常重要的問題,珊德拉,但這並不是會議的重點。我們私底下再接著談。

我們的經理讓我私下再談,我本以為她稍後會和我討論這件事情,但顯然她當時只是想讓我住口。
