SIL's dedication to language development past and present
by Catherine Rountree
Once again there are changes in the editorial and administrative staff of the Journal. Ralph Hill has turned over his position as International Translator Coordinator to Bryan Harmelink who will serve on the editorial board of the Journal as the “first among equals.” My goal is retirement in the not too distant future. So we are dropping the mantle of the Journal onto the shoulders of David Frank. David has years of experience in both linguistics and translation. In addition, his editorial and writing skills seem to be very suited to the position of an editor.
I want to thank all who have contributed to the Journal in one way or another—advice, articles, reviewing, and encouraging.
Be sure to notice the announcements in this issue. Two Bible Translation conferences are scheduled.
