Hints and Tips
Tip: Have you ever wondered if you were formatting your document correctly for us or how much work it is to take your document and put it on our site?
Once we receive your document we have to make sure that the correct styles are applied to the paragraphs before we run an HTML conversion script. If you have already applied the correct styles (Heading 1, 2, 3, Body text, Body Block, Quote, etc.) it speeds up the process of fixing any formatting issues. To apply these styles one can either install our normal.dot file for Word, or open up and use one of our Word documents that already has styles in it. After removing the existing paragraphs in that file one can save it as something else and begin the translation in that word file. Styles can then be applied through the styles toolbar. To learn more see our formatting guidelines page.

This month we had the joy of giving out two awards for translation efforts. This time the awards were for reaching the 5 article milestone (Jenny), and for reaching the 70 article milestone (Mariza). We pray that these resources are a blessing to both of you in your personal lives and ministry.
Know someone else who is bilingual?
If you know of anyone else who would have the time and skills to translate articles for Bible.org please consider recommending this ministry to them. Sometimes the most obvious gifts (like preaching or being a leader) are not the ones with the most impact or need. This is a real opportunity to meet a need and impact thousands and thousands of people with the truth of God's Word.
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 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.
I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you in our translator’s group!
