For the Saints who participated in or witnessed the translation of the Book of Mormon, the most important aspect of the translation was the very fact that it happened. They didn’t spend time questioning linguistic issues of translation. It was more than sufficient that the translation was a miracle and that they had witnessed the miracle of the opening of the heavens in their day.
