Hints and Tips
Tip: Have you wondered what free step by step guidance is available for beginning translators?
Gengo () has some resources available that they use in their training program for translators. While the later projects that they have are definitely geared towards preparing people to translate in their work program, they do have 10 lessons freely available for interaction. Their helpful tips might be just what you need to avoid common pitfalls and take your translation quality to the next level.
Hopefully this will be a helpful resource to you as you work on accurately translating these important messages about God’s Word!
This time we had the joy of giving out one award for translation efforts. This award went to Mariza for having reached the 80 article milestone. She received an ePub version of the book Love or Die by Alexander Strauch. We pray that this resource is a blessing to you in your personal life and ministry.
We also had the joy of seeing Mariza’s long term project of translating Bob Deffinbaugh’s twenty-four part 2 Samuel series come to a completion. Great job!
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 Translation Series 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!
