平行文本是指与原文内容相关的文本。査找平行文本可以从宏观入手，也可以从微观词汇入手。比如这篇文章，讲的是形象设计、服装、造型、色彩、饰品，不妨根据这些关键词的英文image design，clothing /garments, style, color, accessories等，用谷歌搜索。经过搜索你会发现维基百科有个词条，叫fashion design，可以査看。该词条里面有一些词汇可以借鉴。同时，词条的内容也提醒我们：本篇文章的image design实际上是指personal image design，再査personal image design，会发现有不少从事个人形象设计的公司用的就是这个说法。比如，在http: //www. personalimagedesign. co. uk/中，就可以发现一些相关表述：

Colour Analysis and Make-up
Colour analysis shows you how to understand colour, by identifying shades which work in harmony with your own colouring. We can all wear every colour but it's about getting the shades right. Some will make you look well whilst others will drain you, learn which are right for you.
We will show you the right colours of make-up to suit your skin tone. A session takes around 90 minutes and includes a colour swatch with your colours. Colour is the natural way to bring out the best in you.
Image is a visual communication that determines how others see you. Style is the way in which you dress and reflects your personality. You'll be delighted with the way your colours brighten your eyes, enhance your complexion, and flatter your figure. You'll feel confident about the way you shop. It doesn't have to cost a fortune.
