Issue 002. 2012 October Bible.org Translator's Newsletter

Dear Translator's and those interested in Translating:

Welcome,

The first month of our restarted translation effort has gone well. You have kept me busy answering your emails, giving guidance, making award packages, and arranging other details. I am well pleased and hope that I may continue to be of service to your translation efforts.

For those of you who are new to our translation effort I would encourage you to:

  1. Create an account with Bible.org.
  2. Fill out our Volunteer form.
  3. Join our Translator's group.
  4. Pick and Translate an article while following our guidelines.
  5. Contact me with questions as needed and to let me know which article you will be translating!

 

Hints and Tips

Did you know that we have a list of priority articles that we would like to see translated into each language? We are happy to give first priority to our volunteer translators to allow them to translate any article that they would like, however this could help you make your decision if you are wondering what to start next. Check out the list in our group page or downloadable on the Bible.org website.

Awarding Faithfulness

We were delighted to award six achievements certificates this past month-- including one retroactive award for 60 translations to Mariza Souza! These six translators also received their electronic book awards, and in the case of Ms. Souza her Premium Leather Net Bible is in the mail. We thank the Lord for your hard work and dedication to this ministry. We pray that these ministry tools will be a blessing to you all.

If you have not received an award certificate and the appropriate ePub books for your past translation efforts be sure to contact us and enroll in this retroactive award program.

For details on our Award program see the post in our Translator's Group.

For new donors the sponsor will match $2 for every $1 donated ($250 gift becomes $750). For repeat donors the sponsor will match $1 for $1 ($250 gift becomes $500). Any amount will be matched up to $500,000. For more information or to donate see our webpage.

Need help, have questions, or prefer to meet in real time?

I am available and would love to answer any questions you might have. We do have a Frequently Asked Questions section on our Group page, but you can always send me an email! I can also be available through Skype for a voice or chat conversation. Simply let me know through email that you would like to talk and we will get it worked out.

As you begin to get involved, be sure to check out the “Introductions” post in the group. There we can begin to get to know one another as we share this ministry together.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you in our translator’s group!
