PBS to hold Translation Seminar at the Manila International Book Fair
With all the existing Bible versions in the market today, one would ask: “What is the best version to use?”
This and other translation related questions will be discussed in the Bible Translation Seminar, “What is the Best Version of the Bible?” The seminar, spearheaded by the Philippine Bible Society (PBS), will be held during the 25th Manila International Book Fair at the World Trade Center in Pasay City on August 14, 2004, 1:00-5:00 p.m. Registration fee is P100.
To discuss the basic translation principles and differences of various Bible versions are two seasoned Bible scholars and Translation Consultants: Dr. Daniel C. Arichea, Jr., Professor of Duke Divinity School in North Carolina, USA, and the Union Theological Seminary in Cavite; and Dr. Anicia del Corro, Translation Consultant to the United Bible Societies, Asia Pacific Region.
