This book offers a broad-based, contemporary perspective on Bible
translation in terms of academic areas foundational to the endeavor:
translation studies, communication theory, linguistics, cultural
studies, biblical studies and literary and rhetorical studies. The
discussion of each area is geared towards non-specialists, to
introduce them to notions, trends and tools that can contribute to
their understanding of translation.

The Bible translator is encouraged to appreciate various approaches to
translation in view of the wide variety of communicative,
organizational and sociocultural situations in which translation
occurs. However, literary representation of the Scriptures receives
special attention since it has been neglected in earlier, influential
works on Bible translation.

The book's contributors are translation consultants for the United
Bible Societies. They have worked with translation projects in various
media and in languages ranging from ones of a few hundred speakers to
international ones, in Africa, the Americas and Asia.
