Issue 003. 2012 November Bible.org 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.

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 http://translate.google.com/#, 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.
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.
