“拉锯战”,中文俗语,是指竞争双方棋逢对手,你来我往不相上下,就像拉锯一样,故称拉锯战。可以翻译为“seesaw(battle)”,“seesaw”表示“a contest or struggle in which now one side now the other has the lead”。“拉锯”可以翻译为“be locked in a seesaw struggle”。

 

例句:

攻守双方的拉锯战
Seesaw between the attackers and defenders

选举结果出来了,总统候选人们进行了一场彻夜的拉锯战。当然,这是我们预料之内的。
Results have come in and it' s been a seesaw battle back and forth between the presidential candidates all night long as we, of course, expected it would be.
