The following is the Ma at Stanford University speech: Ma : Hello everyone . Today I feel very honored to be here to meet you . About a few months ago , Stanford invited me to lecture . I did not expect . Many people say that because of all about Yahoo , Alibaba, and many other news, this time to speak here is very sensitive . But since I made a promise that I came. Today, if you have any questions to ask me, I will be qestions.
I came to the United States today is the first 15 days , and I intend to stay here for a year . No one knows this plan . Even my company do not know. You asked me why I came here . To intend to do to prepare for the acquisition of Yahoo ? No, we are too sensitive. I came here because I'm tired. Over the past 16 years was too tired . In 1994 I created my career, discovered the Internet, and crazy, and then gave up my teaching job . At that time I felt like a Mongolian eyes like riding on the back of the tiger blind , all the way to throw beat fight, but still struggle, survive . Work for the government for 16 months after the 1999 establishment of Ali Baba .
今天是我来美国的第15 天，而且我打算在这里待上一年。这个计划没有人知道。甚至我的公司也不知道。大家问我为什么要来这里。要打算作收购雅虎的准备吗？不，大家都太敏感了。我来这里是因为我累了。过去16 年来太累了。我在1994 年开创我的事业，发现了互联网，并为之疯狂，然后放弃了我的教师工作。那时候我觉得自己就像是蒙了眼睛骑在盲虎背上似的，一路摔摔打打，但依然奋斗着、生存着。在政府机关工作了16 个月之后，1999 年建立了阿里巴巴。
We are also fortunate to have a Taobao , Alipay , Ali clouds and other companies under the Group . Therefore , the establishment of Ali Baba 12 years later , I decided to rest for some time. In particular, this year's challenge is too difficult , and this is what I did not expect to . Chinese people say that every 12 years is an animal year . Alibaba in China this year happens to be the first 12 years, have encountered many difficult issues , such as suppliers of fraud earlier this year because of events leading to the resignation of chief executive officer , as well as the VIE issue , although I still do not know now what is the VIE , as well as the company's Taobao split into four decisions. So busy after all these things I'm tired . I told myself , why not spend a year rest.
我们还幸运地拥有着淘bao网，支付宝，阿里云和集团下其他的公司。所以，建立阿里巴巴12 年后的今天，我决定需要休息一段时间。尤其今年的挑战实在是太艰辛了，这也是我没有意料到的。中国人说每12 年是一个本命年。阿里巴巴今年在中国刚好是第12 年，也遇上了许多棘手的问题，好比今年初因为供应商欺诈事件导致首席执行官辞职，还有VIE 的问题，虽然我到现在仍然不知道什么是VIE，以及把淘bao分成四个公司的决策。所以，忙完所有这些事情之后我累了。我告诉自己，为什么不花个一年好好休息。
In particular, next year is my personal year, which would surely be more difficult this year . I want to spend a little more time to properly prepare to meet next year more difficult and more difficult challenge . I need a good rest in order for the 3-4 years after the challenge to prepare. This year if things went wrong, we can criticize Taobao , Alibaba CEO or Ali cloud . But after three years , if things went wrong, and that is my
fault. So I'm going to spend some time in the United States ponder and relax. Two days ago, I started practicing again from golf to relax . Therefore, the purpose of coming to the U.S. is really not so complicated is that we speculate .
尤其明年是我个人的本命年，肯定会比今年更辛苦。我想要花多一点时间好好准备，迎接明年更艰苦更困难的挑战。我需要好好休息才能为 3 到 4 年后的挑战做好准备。这三年如果事情出了错，大家可以批评淘bao，阿里巴巴或阿里云。但是三年后，如果事情出了错，那就是我的错。所以我准备在美国花上一段时间好好思考和放松。前两天，我开始再次练习起高尔夫球，好好放松。所以，来美国的目的真的不像是大家揣测的这么复杂。
