Korean to English: Making Synergy Executive
Source text - Korean
시너지 퍼포먼스를 일으키는 동기는 긍정적 태도에 있다. 긍정적인 태도에서 익숙된 습성은 활성을 돕는 동시에 지식과 재능 개발, 그리고 경영 기술 습득에 긍정적인 영향을 미친다. 그러므로 긍정적 태도는 시너지 퍼포먼스 모형의 성공적 성취에 바탕이 된다. 또한 긍정적인 태도는 시너지 모형이 제대로 작동되지 않을 때나 어려운 문제에 부딪혔을 때 이 위기를 슬기롭게 넘길 수 있는 힘이 된다. 실패를 거듭하더라도 포기하지 않고 꾸준히 도전할 수 있는 용기는 긍정적인 태도에서 나온다.
미국의 유명한 기업인, 크레멘트 스톤은 많은 성공한 사람들을 관찰한 결과 그들의 공통된 특성은 모두가 긍정적 태도를 가지고 있었다고 했다. 성공의 비결은 재능보다도 십전팔기의 태도였다는 것이다. 능력 만능주의자들은 정신적인 무장이 약한 경향이 있어 어려운 상황에 직면했을 때 자포자기하기 쉽다. 영재교육을 받은 학생들이나 높은 지능으로 우수한 대학을 나온 사람들이 기대한 만큼의 성취를 이루지 못하는 이유는 긍정적 태도가 올바로 정립되어 있지 않기 때문이다.

The motive for synergy performance is found in positive attitude. Habits formed from having positive attitude not only helps energizing oneself but also exerts a positive influence on development of know-how, talent and acquiring of management skills. Therefore, positive attitude becomes a foundation for materializing a successful synergy performance model. Also, positive attitude becomes a support system when the synergy model is not functioning well or faced with difficult problems. The courage to keep on fighting after multiple letdowns also comes from this positive attitude.
After observing and studying many successful people, a well-known American entrepreneur Clement Stone has said that all of them possessed one trait in common – they all had positive mental attitude. Stone concluded that the key to success depended less on talent and more on unrelenting positive attitude. He also thought that people who rely solely on their ability tend to be feebler in their mental prowess. And when these people face difficulties, many of them fold under pressure. Those who are discovered and touted as prodigies and graduates of world’s top universities often fail to live up to their expectations because they are never taught about the importance of positive mental attitude and have never had the chance to properly establish it on their own.
English to Korean: What Is Hepatitis?

What is Hepatitis?

The Liver

Your liver is the largest organ in your body and plays an essential role in regulating life processes. It performs many vital functions such as:
Converting food into chemicals for life and growth
Detoxifying and removing substances poisonous to the body
Manufacturing important substances needed by the rest of the body
You simply cannot live without your liver.

Hepatitis

Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver. It may occur with limited or no symptoms but sometimes leads to fever and jaundice—a yellowish tint to the skin, eyeballs and urine that is caused by a build-up of bile in the body. The three main forms of hepatitis—called A, B and C—are all caused by a virus.
According to the Center for Disease Control, viral hepatitis is the leading cause of liver cancer and the most common reason for liver transplantation. In the United States, an estimated 1.2 million Americans are living with chronic hepatitis B and 3.2 are living with chronic hepatitis C. Many do not know they are infected. Each year an estimated 25,000 persons become infected with Hepatitis A; 43,000 with hepatitis B, and 17,000 with hepatitis C.

Acute Viral Hepatitis

Acute viral hepatitis is the inflammation of the liver caused by a hepatitis virus. In most cases, the disease onsets suddenly and lasts only a few weeks. It can cause anything from symptoms of the flu to fatal liver failure. The symptoms, if any, usually develop quickly and may include: loss of appetite, nausea, fever, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In most people, special treatment is not needed, however, people with severe acute hepatitis may require hospitalization. People with acute viral hepatitis usually recover in 4 to 8 weeks and should avoid alcohol until they have fully recovered.

Chronic Viral Hepatitis

Chronic viral hepatitis is the inflammation of the liver caused by a virus that lasts at least 6 months. For most people, there are usually no symptoms until serious liver damage has developed. If symptoms manifest, they often include fatigue, poor appetite, and abdominal discomfort. Chronic viral hepatitis is most commonly caused by hepatitis B and hepatitis C virus and can lead to complications such as cirrhosis, liver failure, and liver cancer if left unmonitored and/or treated.

간염이란 무엇인가?



간은 사람의 몸에서 가장 큰 장기이기도 하지만, 생명에 있어서 중요한 역할을 하기도 합니다. 간은 다음과 같은 일을 합니다:
음식물을 사람의 생명과 성장을 위해 화학물질로 변화시킵니다.
몸의 독성물 제거와 해독을 돕습니다.
몸이 필요한 중요한 물질들을 만듭니다.
간단히 말해서, 사람은 간 없이는 생명을 유지하기 힘듭니다.

간염

간염이란 간에 발생하는 염증입니다. 간염은 대부분 아무 통증이 없을 수도 있지만 가끔 고열이나 황달 같은 증상이 나타나기도 합니다. 3가지 주요 형태를 가지고 있는 간염 – A형, B형, 그리고 C형 – 은 모두 바이러스로 인한 간의 염증입니다.

미국 질병 통제 예방 센터 (CDC)에 따르면, 바이러스로 인한 간염은 간암을 일으키고 간이식에 이르는 주요 원인입니다. 미국에서는, 120만명의 미국인들은 만성 B형간염을 앓고 있고, 320만명은 C형간염에 감염되어 있지만, 대부분 간염이 있는지 모르고 있습니다. 매년, 대략 25,000명은 A형간염에, 43,000명은 B형간염에, 그리고 17,000 명은 C형간염을 앓게 됩니다.

급성 간염

급성 간염이란 바이러스로 인해 간에 발생하는 염증입니다. 대부분의 경우, 갑작스럽게 나타나고 몇주동안 앓습니다. 감기와 같은 증상에서부터 치명적인 간부전과 같은 증상을 일으킬 수 있습니다. 급성 간염의 증상은 식욕 부진, 구역질, 고열, 구토와 복부 통증이 있습니다. 대부분의 사람들은 특별한 조치가 필요하지 않지만, 심한 급성 간염을 앓는 사람들은 입원도 할 수 있습니다. 급성 간염은 주로 4~8 주 후에 회복이 되지만, 완전히 회복되기 전에는 알코올을 피하셔야 합니다.

만성 간염

바이러스로 인해 간에 방생하는 염증으로 적어도 6개월을 앓는 간염을 만성 간염이라 합니다. 대부분의 사람들은 간의 치명적인 손상이 있기 전까지는 아무런 자각 증상이 없습니다. 간혹 피곤하거나, 식욕 부진, 또는 복부 통증이 있을 수도 있습니다. 만성 간염은 B형이나 C형 바이러스로 발생하는 염증이고, 치료를 지체하거나 받지 않는 경우, 간경변, 간부전, 또는 간암의 원인이 될 수도 있습니다.
