SIL's dedication to language development past and present
by David Frank
We are pleased to present a new issue of the Journal of Translation on schedule, with three short but excellent articles and a short note pertaining to different aspects of Bible translation, including the ethics of consulting and the cross-cultural understanding and meaningful cross-linguistic communication of the content of ancient texts. Our thanks go to these authors for their scholarly analysis and presentation of important topics.
We also thank the journal's Editorial Board, which will be working with the Editor, taking an active role in helping determine what should be published in the journal.
Eric Kindberg, Diane Dix, Newton Frank and Barbara Shannon contributed to the editing of this issue of the Journal of Translation.
