Welcome to the Translator Support Group!
After you have filled out the volunteer application and read the Frequently Asked Questions Post (FAQ) you may begin to translate articles for Bible.org.
If you have any questions return to this group to read the FAQ. We will add new questions/answers as translator support needs arise.
Translating can be a tough job. Correctly understanding what is being originally said is crucial to being able to translate it accurately into the second language. When dealing with the Bible and theological studies words are often used that are not words used in everyday activity. To help you with this here are a few links to online dictionaries and resources that may be of help should you need some clarification. (See Below)
Almost all translators ask us this question at some point, so this topic has its very own post!
Here at Bible.org we are so thankful for the many volunteer translators that God has sent our way over the years. We recognize that translation can be quite hard work, and that you, our translators, do it unpaid as a ministry service to us and the world. We have been very blessed by your sacrificial service to the Lord. We would like in turn to be a blessing to you with what we are able to share back. Most of the resources that we provide here on Bible.org are free and available to all. However we do have a few resources and items in our study environment and store that we do sell. A number of these we would like to make available as a token thank you for your volunteer ministry with us. It is hoped and prayed that these will be a further blessing to you in your ministry in your local setting. In the end we recognize that it is God who will give out the real awards in eternity for believers’ faithfulness and pure motivation. However we do hope these will be a nice encouragement, a useful side benefit, and in some way a help in your service to our Lord. Click here for details on Translation Award Plan.
