I did some research about the Greek Gods associated with language and communication and found that the best approximation is the Greek God: Hermes.
I'm writing a research paper about communications, and I want to include as an opening quote in my paper the following (but in Latin):
For my great work is a surprise to Hermes
this is to refer that even though Hermes is the God of language and communication, the advancement in technology and as human species, in general, we changed the way we communicate, or at least as Hermes conceived it. hence, taking him by surprise.
I tried reverse engineering it and reached this translation:
Magnum opus meum mirum est Hermes
- According to Google translate: My great work is amazing Hermes
- According to translate.com: For my great work is a surprise to Hermes
Can someone help me with a stable translation, please? I want it to say: For my great work is a surprise to Hermes
While also keeping: Great work = Magnum opus.
Thank you in advance
