During the period of the Warring States, Shanghai first belonged to the Yue State and then to the Chu State.

在战国时期,上海先后属于越国和楚国。

King Lie of the Chu State appointed Huangxie as his prime minister and bestowed him the title of Lord Chunshen.

楚国的烈王任命黄歇为他的首要大臣,授予他春申君头衔。

Shanghai was part of his feoff.

上海是他的封地中的一部分。

The other name of Shanghai"Shen" was derived from this.

上海的另一个名字“申”就源于此。

Shanghai has another name "Hu", which came from "Hu Du".

上海还有另一个名字“沪”,其来源于“沪渎

In ancient times, Shanghai used to be a fishing village.

在古代,上海过去是一个渔村。

The fishermen then invented a bamboo fishing device called "Hu".

渔民们后来发明了竹制捕鱼工具称为“沪”。

"Du" in Chinese then meant "creek".

中文的“渎”意思是“小溪”。

So the area was called  "Hu Du" before it became known as Shanghai.

所以它成为众所周知的上海之前,这块地方被称作沪渎。

The name Shanghai actually came into being during the Song Dynasty, when it was becoming a new rising trading port.

上海这个名字实际上在宋代被引进,那时上海是一个新兴的贸易港口。

During the reigns of Qing Emperor Qianlong and Jiaqing, Shanghai became a major trading port and water transportation center for grains in China.

在清皇帝乾隆和嘉庆统治期间,上海成为中国粮食主要的贸易港口和水路运输中心。

In 1843, after the Opium War, Shanghai was forced to become an open port by the colonialists.

鸦片战争之后的1843年,上海被迫成为殖民者的开放口岸。

During the period of 1845-1849, the British, American and French concessions were set up in Shanghai.

在1845年至1849年期间,英国,美国和法国退出上海。

In 1863, the British and American concessions amalgamated into the International Settlement.

在1863年,英国和美国妥协合并进国际公约。

Then, Shanghai was actually partitioned into the Chinese Section, the International Settlement and the French Concession.

然后,上海实际上被分割进中国地区,国际公约和法国退出。

In the 100 years since 1843, Shanghai had become an important port for foreign colonialists to dump their goods, ravage raw materials and silver dollars.

从1843年开始的100年内,上海成为外国殖民者倾倒他们货物,破坏原材料和银币重要港口。
