Hints and Tips
Tip: Proofread, proofread, and proofread.
Spelling errors, incorrect punctuation, omitted words or sentences, wrong verse chapter or verse references, and other such mistakes will be very distracting for our readers and may prevent them from getting the most out of the article that you are putting your hard work into. For best results have someone else read through your translation before sending it in, or come back to it and re-read it some time later. Ideally this will allow the article to be viewed from a fresh perspective that will make catching any errors easier.
Learn More Tips from our FAQ Section.
While we do not have any paid translators of our articles here at Bible.org we are happy to be able to award our volunteer translator’s with free ePub books and resources at different milestones in their translation ministry. After the first article translation award we have awards at 5 article intervals. At the 50 articles milestone a special award of a Genuine Leather First edition Net Bible is received (over $100 value!).
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!
