Nida School of Bible Translation 2016 - Guwahati, India
A collaborative initiative with ABS Nida Institute, UBS Translations and the Bible Society of India
This seminar will address translation issues related to literary genres (especially narrative and poetry), textual problems, diverse understandings of canon, language analysis and the translation of non-standardized languages, and issues in revising existing translations. These problems will be addressed in light of insights drawn from both biblical studies and translation studies, highlighting the understanding of translation as creation and mediation, and thus the importance of the agency of the translator. Practical exercises in translation will illustrate these ideas and encourage students to address translation problems in innovative ways.
