Redheads and people who are losing their hair could finally get their own emoji.

红发人士和光头人士终于都可以获得他们的专属emoji表情了。

The Emojipedia website has submitted new emojis following demands for them to be more diverse.

Emojipedia网站已经提交了这些新的表情。而此前就有要求称,emoji表情应该更加多样化。

If its ideas are approved, the new emoji could be added next year, alongside new characters that have grey, curly or Afro hair.

如果这些表情获得批准,明年就可以增加到表情库里,此外,还会有白发、卷发以及小短卷发型等新表情。

New styles 'focus on appearances that aren’t currently supported in the informal skin tone/hair color pairings used by many vendors', the Emojipedia's submission page said.

Emojipedia在其申请页面中写道,emoji的新风格“主要集中在目前许多手机上使用的非官方肤色和发色组合所不支持的外形特征上。”

The page gave Jessica Chastain and Ed Sheeran as examples of people with red hair.

Emojipedia列举的红发人士包括杰西卡•查斯坦和艾德•希兰。

Sinead O'Connor and Samuel L Jackson were given as examples of people with no hair or a shaven head.

西尼德•奥康娜和塞缪尔•L•杰克逊被列为没头发或剃光头的代表。

The emoji could be released in 2018 if chosen by the Unicode Consortium following a number of complaints about lack of diversity.

如果这些emoji表情被统一码协会批准,就可能在2018年推出。该协会此前收到了一系列投诉,指责其缺乏多样性。

At the end of last year Apple unveiled its iOS 10.2 software update which included 72 new emojis such as a firefighter, welder, astronaut and rockstar.

去年年底,苹果公司更新了iOS 10.2系统,其中就包括新增的消防员、电焊工、宇航员以及摇滚歌星等72个表情。

But redheads were notably absent prompting a global outcry.

但明显缺少红发人士这点引发了全球抗议。

An online petition in Scotland demanding ginger emoji got 20,000 signatures.

苏格兰一个网上请愿活动征集了2万个签名,要求增加姜黄发色的emoji表情。

The main issue is there is one, overarching organisation, known as Unicode Consortium, who controls emoji on iPhone.

问题的关键是有一个大权在握的组织掌控了苹果手机上的所有emoji表情,它就是统一代码协会。

In March a new list of 69 emojis were published by Emojipedia which might be released later this year.

今年3月,Emojipedia公布的69个新表情可能在今年晚些时候推出。

However, the emojis need to be approved by the Unicode Technical Committee before people can use them.

然而,还需要获得统一码技术委员会的批准,人们才能使用这些表情。

In 2015, Ginger emoji were unveiled on the Google Play Store for Android. But up until now, the Unicode Consortium has been reluctant to give into ginger campaigners.

2015年,针对安卓系统的谷歌电子商城推出了姜黄发色emoji表情。但是直到现在,统一码协会仍然不愿给姜黄发色的抗议者们使用这个表情。
