Translation Standards

The Forum has adopted standards on basic procedures and principles for Bible translation and qualifications on translation consultants. These standards enable cooperation and collaboration among agencies. Members are considering developing standards in other areas, such as guidelines for collaborating in translation projects, collaboration with churches (providing best practices on engaging with churches locally, nationally and missionally in Bible translation); standards in audio and video presentations; and the place of storying and orality.
