Where the world comes to study the Bible

Issue 003. 2012 November Translator's Newsletter

Dear Translator's and those interested in Translating:


Thank you for your continued ministry in working on translating articles. This month we were blessed to be able to post two more translations of our "God's Plan of Salvation" gospel article. This gospel presentation is now available in Russian and Polish. Thank you Olya (Russian) and Marek (Polish) for your hard work on these. We were also able to post another article in the Portuguese version of Bob Deffinbaugh's 2 Samuel Series. Thank you Mariza.

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

  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 you can use Google Translate as part of your process in translating? Google translator is a tool that can be used for translating documents quickly. As with any program, grammatical errors still occur, so please take the time to edit the document for grammatical and formatting errors before sending the translated copy for publishing. This is not a substitute for actual translation work. Go to, copy the article into the editor box, and then pick English as the first language. Next choose your language as the second language and click translate. Once the document has been cleaned up and properly formatted send the document back to us here.

Awarding Faithfulness

 After the initial rush of getting caught up and started last month we were blessed to award 3 new certificates and books this month. Thank you for your efforts, and we hope that you are enjoying your new resources.

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.
