NSBT Chiang Mai 2015


  • Chiang Mai Thailand

Nida School of Bible Translation

Intended to equip consultants to carry forward the multifaceted work of Bible translation in diverse settings marked by social and religious complexity, NSBT presents an innovative approach to Bible translation training, situating the work within the broader framework of the academic discipline of Translation Studies. NSBT Chiang Mai, conducted in partnership with the Seed Company, will focus in particular on examining a range of contemporary translation theories and exploring their bearing and influence on the work of Bible translation. Participants will be guided into a critical examination of emerging issues and concerns that characterize the current global environment, and yet are played out in the specific localities where translation takes place.
