Bible Translation Forum - Symposium - up from 2005

The annual Bible Translation Forum - Symposium - is a symposium where theologians, translators, linguists, and others interested in Bible translation (eg, missiologists, sociologists, etc.) meet to critically and fairly discuss their work in the area of the Science of ​​Bible Science.

In the past, we had translators of the Unified Translation, the Elberfelder Bible, the Basis Bible, the New Zurich Bible, the Bible in Just Language, the Luther Bible, and the New Evangelical Translation. Also Linguists in functional translation and relevance theory, as well as translation consultants from United Bible Societies and Summer Institute of Linguistics. Speakers and participants cover the entire spectrum of ecclesiastical tradition.

The idea of ​​the forum is to discuss the largely ignored, but in our opinion central, Christian theme of the Bible as a translation, and to find out who, when, what and for whom, in this area, something has been done or undertaken.

I would personally be very happy if you get excited about it and I look forward to your inquiry. You are also welcome to recommend the Forum to your friends who are interested in the science of Bible translation.
