Korean to English: Understanding Life Transformation through Augustine’s Theory of Seminal Reason
Source text - Korean
Understanding Life Transformation through Augustine’s Theory of Seminal Reason
by Jangsaeng Kim, PhD

In search of the original text.
Translation - English
If these verses...were read along with Augustine’s seminal reason, then one can see that the water in the firmament existed in light and pure form from above, which is a description that is also scientifically sound. Picture them from the cosmos to the depth of the earth arranged by weight with the lightest of them at the top, the stars—pure light from fire cohered and arrayed high above the firmament; then the likes of Mars that play the role of a cooling star by circumvolving the solar system in great orbital speed; and then the next heavy in weight—water—in vapor form of water; and far below, soil; and, to recapture this whole scene in but fewer words is—above water and soil is air with water like seawater in between with the heaviest in the bare bottom—soil.

  • Improve my productivity

I have over 7 consecutive years of experience in linguistics services.  I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and a Master's in Divinity from Methodist Theological University in Seoul, South Korea.  My academic translations were published in the USA and South Korea.  I also edit and proofread.  I am also a trained medical interpreter and am qualified to interpret in the social services and legal settings, such as, deposition and hearing. 

My ultimate goal in linguistics services is to help people of different cultures and ethnic backgrounds to appreciate more of one another by overcoming language barriers.  I believe communication is the key to have a more peaceful society and the first step to understanding one another.
