Nida School of Bible Translation - Contemporary Theory and Practice of Bible Translation

This workshop deepens the students’ understanding of and capacity for translation, probing beyond traditional substitutionalist approaches that defined translation as largely or even only a philological, linguistic exchange between source and target texts. Among other outcomes, the workshop will sharpen the students’ ability to measure the success of a translation by expanding on classic measurements of faithfulness and fidelity to include the valuation of similarity and difference and the role of translation as a mediator between these two poles.
