Have you listened to The Bible Translation Podcast yet?
I'm here to shamelessly plug Jack's newest project! (You know, in addition to full-time linguistics school and learning French and being a husband and father...)
Season One of the podcast walks you through the big-picture process of Bible translation. Jack, along with his guest speakers, explains the process from the very beginning to the end - a final copy of God's Word in the hands of people who have been equipped with literacy in order to read, understand, and apply it.
Episode five is really fun to listen to. In it, Jack finishes his interview with our good friend, Adam Huntley. Adam and his family became our very close friends in Dallas last year. He is currently (remotely) working as a Translation Consultant with multiple language projects in Central African Republic. You'll hear stories of specific issues and conversations that come up in the checking of newly translated Scripture. Adam's examples do a really good job of explaining the complexities of language and communication - and help show why a simple "Google translate" would never be sufficient.
