Julia E. Smith (1792 - 1886)
Julia Smith, of Glastonbury, Connecticut had a working knowledge of Latin, Greek and Hebrew, and having read the Bible in its original languages, she set about creating her own translation, which she completed in 1855. The work is a strictly literal rendering, always translating a Greek or Hebrew word with the same word wherever possible. Smith accomplished this work on her own in the span of eight years (1847 to 1855). The Julia Evelina Smith Parker Translation is considered the first complete translation of the Bible into English by a woman.
