The Books I Picked & Why

Language of Amarna - Language of Diplomacy: Perspectives on the Amarna Letters

By J. Jana Mynarova

Language of Amarna - Language of Diplomacy: Perspectives on the Amarna Letters

Why this book?

Better known as Amarna Heresy, a philosophical discussion from Ancient Egypt's Babylon about Monotheism and Trinity written 3,000 years ago. “To the King, My Sun, My God, the Breath of My Life…” This remarkable collection contains requests for gold, offers of marriage, warning of a traitor, and promises of loyalty to the pharaoh – letters of correspondence, all written in Akkadian. The Amorite tribes from Babylonia, form part of this correspondence.

Akhenaten 1378 - 1361 BC, was the first Egyptian ruler in history, who has specifically written about Egyptian Gods, a practice usually kept behind the closed doors of the temples. The deity called Aten inspired such devotion in Pharaoh Akhenaten that he built a new capital city which he named ‘Horizon of the Aten’ (modern Amarna), dedicated to the AΘen. He spoke of a deity with no image, an omnipotent God/goddess that emanates aNX, holy spirits, served by all the other Ancient Egyptian Gods, as the ancient saints or angels, who all had their own role in the kingdom of God.

Moses and Akhenaten: The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus

By Ahmed Osman

Moses and Akhenaten: The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus

Why this book?

 

A historian, lecturer, researcher, and author, Ahmed Osman is a British Egyptologist born in Cairo who published three books: Stranger in the Valley of the Kings (1987), Moses: Pharaoh of Egypt (1990) and The House of the Messiah (1992) says that Tut-Ankh-Amun had a very similar “story” to Jesus.

The Egyptian Book of the Dead contains the Ancient Egyptian Negative Confessions that were originally written on Temple walls and as the burial texts, and were "I have not stolen...", "I have not killed", etc., a letter written to Gods, engraved on Temples walls and prepared as Papyruses 2,000 BC and were equal to "Thou shalt not", the Ten Commandments of Jewish and Christian ethics, later perceived as divine revelation. The Negative Confession is accompanied by a list of protective sounds and symbols that kept souls safe from demons. Just for the history lovers, the timeline of these is the following:

3150 BC – First preserved hieroglyphs, in the tomb of a king at Abydos

2345 BC – First royal pyramid, of King Unas, to contain the Pyramid Texts, carved for the king

2100 BC – First Coffin Texts, painted on the coffins

1550 BC – Papyrus copies of the Book of the Dead are used instead of inscribing spells on the walls of the tombs

Ahmed Osman tells us about Tut-Ankh-Amun Trinity and Jesus:

“In the tomb of Tut-Ankh-Amun (*note the name TuT aNX aMN) there is a unique scene, representing the Trinity of Christ. As I stood alone, gazing at the painting of the burial chamber on the north wall, I realized for the first time that I was looking at the strongest pictorial evidence linking Tutankhamun and Christ.”

Inanna, Lady of Largest Heart: Poems of the Sumerian High Priestess Enheduanna

By Betty De Shong Meador

Inanna, Lady of Largest Heart: Poems of the Sumerian High Priestess Enheduanna

Why this book?

 

Scholars have disagreed when written records become literature, yet the earliest literary authors known by name are Ptahhotep (who wrote in Egyptian) and Enheduanna (who wrote in Sumerian), dating to around 2400 BC. Enheduanna is the earliest known Female Poet. She was the High Priestess of the goddess Inanna and the moon god Nanna (Sin). She lived in the Sumerian city-state of Ur in Syria. So this would be my 3rd recommendation for all the researchers of Ancient History.

Enheduanna's contributions to Sumerian literature, include the collection of hymns known as the "Sumerian Temple Hymns", 37 tablets to be exact, from 2,700 BC. The temple hymns were the first collection of their kind, the copying of the hymns indicates that they were used long after and held in very high esteem.

Sīn or Suen (Akkadian: EN.ZU or lord-ess of wisdom) or Nanna was the goddess of the moon in the Mesopotamian religions of Sumer, Akkad, Assyria, and Babylonia. Nanna (the classical Sumerian spelling is DŠEŠ.KI = the technical term for the crescent moon, also refers to the deity, is a Sumerian deity worshiped in Ur (Syria you must have guessed). The book is a precious collection of the world's oldest rituals, and hymns that had influenced the development of all religious thoughts.

The Derveni Papyrus: Cosmology, Theology and Interpretation

By Gábor Betegh

The Derveni Papyrus: Cosmology, Theology and Interpretation

Why this book?

 

The Derveni papyrus (500 BC), an ancient Macedonian papyrus that was found in 1962, and was finally published, just recently, in 2006. Derveni Papyrus, is now at Thessaloniki Museum, Greece. This version was published in 340 BC and it is an Orphic book of mystical initiations.

The scroll was carefully unrolled and the fragments joined together, thus forming 26 columns of text. which was used in the mystery cult of Dionysus by the 'Orphic initiators'. It is a philosophical treatise written as a commentary on an Orphic poem, a Theogony concerning the birth of the gods, compiled in the circle of the philosopher AnaXagoras.

The scroll contains a philosophical treatise on a lost poem describing the birth of the gods and other beliefs focusing on Orpheus, the mythical musician who visited the underworld to reclaim his dead love. The Orpheus cult tells us of a single creator god, of the trinity, of resurrection, of a virgin's child, back in the Macedonian region of Ancient Greece that was the Ancient Europe during 400 BC...

Both Orpheus and Heraclitus compose allegories about the secrets of nature and of God. In the Orphic cosmogony, he was writing only for the "pure in hearing".

Φερεκύδης - Θεογονία | Pherecydes - Theogony

By Auth Vasileios Kaziltzis

Φερεκύδης - Θεογονία | Pherecydes - Theogony

Why this book?

 

The Ancient Greek manuscript tradition and writing of history usually starts with re-writing myths, mentioning the creation story, or using the collection of myths from the Greek work called the Theogony Θεογονία “Birth of the Gods” attributed to Hesiod 700 BC. It is a long narrative poem compiling Ancient Greek myths. Hesiod describes how the gods were created, their struggles with each other, and the nature of their divine rule. In the Theogony, the origin (arche / aRČe) is Chaos, a primordial condition, a gaping void (abyss), with the beginnings and the ends of the earth, sky, sea, gods, mankind. Symbolically associated with water, it is the source, origin, or root of things that exist. Then came Gaia (Earth), Tartarus (the cave-like space under the earth), and Eros, who becomes the creator of the world

15 Weird Hobbies That'll Make You Better At Why Is Language Translation Important

The abundant natural resources and beautiful landscapes grant great futures to the African continent with travel and industry development opportunities. The African resources include oil, gold and other minerals, diamonds and other pressure stones, of which some African countries remain higher growth rates, like Sudan, Angola, Guinea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The economic and trading relationships between African and Canada are reaching some new stages in the past years, and the Canadian government, the public and private businesses are investing and involved in the African Great Lake areas and the South Africa including businesses, minerals, and travels. These inter-continent developments require intensive service supports from language translations and interpretations.

With regarding languages, Africa is considered as the continent with the most languages used and the greatest linguistic diversities, and some of them are known as the most difficult ones. There are more than 2,000 - 3,000 different languages spoken by native Africans, and they belong to mostly two language families as the Afro-Asiatic family and the Nilo-Saharan family, each of the family is spoken by about half of the Africans. Among the thousands of African languages, about one hundred are widely used in the interethnic communications, and several ones of them are spoken by the most populations like Berber, Arabic, Amharic, Oromo, Somali, Hausa, Swahili, Yoruba and Igbo. The highly diverse languages cause vital issues in policy makings and official communications in the continent. Even though the African Union announces that all African languages are official, only a few of them are practically used as official at national levels.

The divers and multiple African language families are the big challenges to the translation services, and expertise and profession are definitely required for the translations either from English or Canadian French. In any case of African translation, the social convention and cultural differences of both languages have to be formalized by the translators, in order to transfer and re-capture or reshape the style, the format, and the exact meanings. The diverse languages and multiple races in make the language formalization very complex, andare expected to be possibly handled bynative English or Canadian French translators with Africanlanguage knowledge to manage the workcorrectly and professionally.

Theservices offer multiple choicesfrom human translation, memory management, to glossary and terminology management with affordable pricing; and cover most of the industries and business categories.

This may be applicable in case of personal small appliances which don't cost much. But when it comes to something big and costly, you should not take the risk of using it without adequate knowledge and to get proper instruction there is no better option than the instruction manual that comes with the product you want to operate or assemble. But what if you buy the product from abroad and the manual is not written in your mother tongue. No one would wish to face a situation like this and I am sure you wouldn't too. Here comes the necessity of technical translation.

Millions of companies are out there producing all these products and marketing those in different markets around the world. The end-users of all these products speak different languages and in most case they don't have adequate knowledge of English since there are many people who show kind of aversion to learning English specially the Chinese, Japanese and South Koreans. And these countries have huge population who are great potential customers of the products produced by the business companies.

9 Signs You're A Translator Expert

Scuffling with Language Translation Software program

nbsp; Struggling With Language Translation Program By REUTERS EW YORK -- Picture having a conversation with someone that does not communicate your language and getting no problems knowing or currently being understood. Imagine composing a poem in Russian or Chinese when you cannot examine a phrase of both.

That attractive eyesight, fueled from the emergence of the online world and the worldwide economic system, is guiding a transformation of the age-old business of translation.

Sites presently support people with unique languages understand each other in managed situation, enabling them to Trade prepared texts or specialized information.

Though the emergence of machine translation has raised hopes between some -- and powerful doubts among Many others -- that personal computers will sooner or later make human interpreters out of date as Russian or Arabic or other words are rendered promptly into colloquial English or almost every other tongue.

Its still considerably significantly off, said Jeff Hopkins, senior vice chairman of engineering for Lernout Hauspie Speech Products NV, that is establishing an item to translate speech in A 3-stage procedure using speech recognition, textual content-to-text translation and text-to-speech engineering.

Obviously in ten years, factors will likely be superior.

Device translation by now is a business that is certainly escalating by leaps and bounds. The almost $5 billion marketplace for translation by desktops and Web site and software program localization, which adapts services to a specific society, is predicted to a lot more than double by the end of 2005, In keeping with study think-tank Allied Enterprise Intelligence Inc.

Human translation is presently a bigger enterprise, at $8 billion this 12 months, however it is expected to increase in a A lot-slower tempo, growing 33 p.c to $ten.seven billion by 2005.

Even so, read more many linguists are not persuaded they will ever see per day when humans no more are definitely the vital to accurate translation. The prosperous, refined intricacies at the heart of all human languages be certain that computers will never break out in their confined role whenever shortly, they are saying.

As People we really like technologies, its pretty seductive, said Kevin Hendzel, chief working officer for ASET Intercontinental Providers Corp., a translation and localization organization based in Arlington, Virginia.

Its seductive you can cross these boundaries with program, as you can cross these traces on-line, however you cant cross the language barrier like that.

Hendzel claims language is much more psychological than formulaic, rendering it virtually unachievable to translate effectively with no help of the human that has a life time of practical experience. Linguists are required to capture the nuances in the language in every little thing from literary functions to Avenue corner conversations, he stated.

It could be doable for (personal computers) to translate exactly the same way it would be feasible for them to discuss your like lifestyle, mentioned Hendzel, a previous head linguist with the specialized translation workers for the White Dwelling Presidential Hotline.

Though one may have to go in other places for intimate information, a number of new Sites for example Clear Language Inc.s FreeTranslation.com and AltaVista Co.s Babel Fish are giving cost-free on-line use of equipment translation.

To make sure, substance translated by this kind of products and services generally needs significant submit-modifying Because the process can only deliver the gist of the initial language, Hendzel reported. Considered one of my clientele when explained its type of just like a letter from your ridiculous Aunt Irene.

Indeed. A demo operate making use of Babel Fish to translate Hendzels quotation into Portuguese and again into English renders: An one among my shoppers time that said is luck as of the letter of its aunt crazy particular person Irene.

The Web page posts a warning that it may possibly grasp the general intent of the initial text, although the user really should check with a human translator to have a elegant translation.

For remaining small business communications, corporations have turned to a unique solution where linguists use interactive software instruments that speed up enough time it will require to translate textual content, enabling human translators to accept, revise or commence anew the proposed translated text, Muriel Jerome-OKeeffe, former board president with the American Translators Affiliation, reported.

The factor thats been essentially the most promising is the memory administration applications, she stated.

But some providers are environment their sights bigger, aiming to create the vision of automatic translation of spoken language right into a working truth. Belgium-dependent Lernout Hauspie may be on the list of closest, declaring it options to launch these a product in another a few a long time.

But This is able to perform only in a very constrained surroundings such as a confined amount of speakers or topics talked about, explained Hopkins, who will work in Lernouts globalization and Web translation division.

Hendzel contends that a far more Highly developed product effective at precise, computerized translation will likely be achievable when technological know-how is produced that functions additional just like the human brain.

Theyve been working on it for 50 several years and so they haven't solved the semantic issue, Hendzel reported. It might in no way be accomplished. Someday, one hundred years Later on, it might be done nevertheless the computer systems will likely not resemble ours. nbsp;
