China’s market regulator said on Thursday that it had opened an antimonopoly investigation into the e-commerce giant Alibaba, ratcheting up the government’s scrutiny of one of the world’s most valuable internet companies.

中國的市場監管機構於週四表示,其已對電子商務巨頭阿里巴巴啟動反壟斷調查,加強了政府對這個市值名列世界前茅的互聯網企業的審查力度。

In a terse statement, the State Administration for Market Regulation said it had started the investigation amid reports that Alibaba had engaged in monopolistic conduct such as placing unreasonable restrictions on merchants or other users of its platforms.

engage in… 從事~
monopolistic conduct 壟斷行為
place unreasonable restrictions 施加不合理的限制
merchant 商人、貿易商戶
platform 平台

國家市場監管總局在簡短的聲明中表示,由於有報導稱阿里巴巴從事壟斷行為諸如對商戶或平台其他用戶施加不合理的限制,因此已開始調查。

The investigation in China coincides with efforts by the United States and European Union to curb the power of Western internet giants such as Google and Facebook. Frustration has been building for years in Washington and Brussels over the outsize influence that a few tech companies wield over commerce, speech and advertising across a vast swath of the globe.

curb the power of 遏制~的勢力
wield over 對~具有影響力*
a vast swath of 一大部分、範圍~

中國展開此次調查同時,美國和歐盟正努力遏制Google和Facebook等西方互聯網巨頭的勢力。多年來,幾家科技公司對全球大片地區的商業、言論和廣告施加了巨大影響,這讓華盛頓和布魯塞爾越來越感到沮喪。
