"God also will contact you"
I recently sent to a couple of English journals here in Korea a couple of lit-crit articles I'd like to see published. One journal has replied - but in Korean! My Korean language skills are atrociously bad, so I would rely on my wife, but she's out at the moment. Fortunately, Gmail offers instant translation, so I'm clicking "Translate" and getting the following message, presumably via Google Translate, so I'm slightly redacting to protect the journal's good name, particularly since the journal has no responsibility for Google's weird translation results:
Teacher,I'm a bit concerned to read that God is going to contact me, but also a bit disappointed that He hasn't yet done so, even though more than five minutes have passed by now. But perhaps the delay is my own fault. The message does say, "The teacher who submitted papers commissioned a review to consider the expertise of scholars in five minutes." Am I supposed to have commissioned a review?
Good morning? English . . . of Korea is the editorial board.
The teacher who submitted papers commissioned a review to consider the expertise of scholars in five minutes. He believes that examination deulkkeseo wiwonnim give us a fair and professional examination.
English . . . of Korea haejusimyeon edit any review wiwonnim deulkkeseo in accordance with the provisions of the Registration Committee Commentary contributor[.] God also will contact you.
Korea . . . of English . . . Editing Committee Dream
But before I go about the business of commissioning "a review to consider the expertise of scholars in five minutes," I'd better wait for my wife to return and translate the original Korean, just to be sure.
Unless God gets here first . . .
