Where the world comes to study the Bible

Issue 017. 2014 February Bible.org Translator's Newsletter

Thank You!

This last month has resulted in 4 new translated articles being added to the site. Thank you for your hard work this month, Tilak!

What a blessing to be able to provide these new resources to our readers around the world. Thank you all for your ongoing translation work. See the Languages and Articles Here.

Hints and Tips

Tip: Have you wondered what free electronic dictionaries were available online to assist you as you were working on a translation?

  • A direct search for a dictionary in your language can of course be very helpful, but Lexicool has/is going through the effort to be a primary directory of “all” online bilingual and multilingual dictionaries and glossaries freely available on the internet.
  • Omniglot has also put together quite a list of easily searchable online dictionaries on their website. Most languages listed have multiple available dictionaries.
  • Another website with links to hundreds of dictionaries is Your Dictionary.

Hopefully these will be helpful resources to you as you work on accurately translating these important messages about God’s Word!

Awarding Faithfulness

This month we had the joy of giving out two awards for translation efforts. These awards both went to Tilak for having already passed the 5 and now reached the 10 article milestones. He received ePub versions of the books Teaching as Jesus Taught by Roy B. Zuck and Enjoy Your Bible: Making the Most of Your Time with God’s Word by Irving L. Jensen. We pray that these resources are a blessing to you in your personal life and ministry.
