PBS Gains Wider View on Translation from Italy Training
The Philippine Bible Society gained a wider perspective in the discipline of translation, particularly Bible translation following its participation in the Translation Studies training held last May 1 to 6 in Misano, Italy.
The said training was conducted under the auspices of the Nida School fo Bible Translation, in partnership with the University of San Pelegrino and the United Bible Societies.
Publishing Manager Rev. Dr. Edgar Ebojo, who attended the said training, shared that it (the training) “affirmed the sound translation practices used by PBS and harnesses the steps we still need to take to improve these practices.”
“This training is a huge boost to the Bible Society as it gives us a wider perspective not only on Bible translation but also on what is happening in the discipline of translation, especially in translation practices in a very pluralistic context. It also gives us better ideas on the role of Bible translation in this context,” Pastor Egay explained.
