English to Korean: From Simon May, "From physical desire to paradise: Plato," in Love, A History General field: Art/Literary Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - English Love's ultimate desire, Socrates reports, is to be 'in constant union' with the very essence of beauty, goodness, and truth itself. To be united with the essence of, say, beauty means not to be united with this or that beautiful thing, but to be united with beauty itself, with what it is to be beautiful, with what is common to all beautiful things and enables us to identify them as beautiful. This is a reality that is absolute and immortal and unchanging.
Seized by this vision of divine beauty, we look to love to take us from an imperfect, transient world to a realm of perfection and eternity. We expect to love to culminate in an experience of absolute beauty and goodness -- and our beloved to inspire in us such an experience.
Translation - Korean 소크라테스가 말하건대, 사랑에서 우리가 궁극적으로 바라는 것은 아주 본질적인 아름다움, 선함, 진실됨 그 자체를 포함한 '지속적인 결합'이다. 예를 들어 본질적인 아름다움과 결합되는 것은, 아름다운 이것 혹은 저것과 결합된다는 것이 아니라, 아름다움 그 자체 혹은 아름답게 산다는 것, 아름다운 것들이 가진 공통점, 그리고 우리가 아름답다고 정의할 수 있는 것들과의 결합을 의미한다. 이것은 절대적이며, 없어지지 않고, 또 변하지 않는 현실이다.
신성한 아름다움에 사로 잡혀, 우리는 사랑이 우리를 불완전하고 일시적인 세상에서 완벽하고 영원한 영역으로 데려가줄 것이라고 기대한다. 우리는 사랑을 통해 아름다움과 선함의 종점에 도달하는 경험을 할 것을, 그리고 사랑하는 연인이 그 경험을 하도록 만들 것이라고 예상하게 된다.

Hello! My name is Cindy, and I am an artist and English-Korean translator based in Seoul, Korea. Originally from Korea, I studied and worked in the US for ten years in pursuit of my creative passion. I possess native fluency in reading, writing, and speaking in both Korean and English.
I have gained professional experiences in arts administration in various art organizations, and have worked with clients from different communities. These experiences have provided me with an opportunity not only to manage projects in a timely manner but also to provide accurate and efficient translations for global customers.
My background extends across art, design, events, and online publishing. I have translated various articles about health, wellness, art, literature, and psychology, as well as business-related documents such as contracts, templates, and emails. In the most recent project, I have contributed my skills to the Korean lexicography project.
I am happy to offer English to Korean translation service on other industries as well, including advertising, marketing, media, etc. With a positive attitude and proven ability to facilitate global communication, I would love to bring strength in translation projects. Any sample translation test is welcome! I can be reached at [email protected]. I am always open to discuss any project.
I look forward to working with you!
