Door43 is being developed as a platform for Bible translation teams to work together from anywhere in the world. The Door43 platform provides many useful features, including support for USFM, fine-grained revision control and instant accessibility to the translation on mobile phones.
These are the translation projects currently underway, with more getting started:
The Open Bible TranslationOpen Bible Translation is a version of the Bible in English that is intended to be accurate, readable and especially useful for second-language speakers of English. We are looking for help with it!
The Plain English Translation is a translation of the Bible that is based on a back-translation of the Terjemahan Sederhana Indonesia (TSI) (in Indonesian). Since the PET (and the TSI) are meaning-based translations for readers with no Bible background, the PET may be useful as a resource for people who are translating the Bible into ethnic languages anywhere in the world. The translation includes implicit information that is useful for people with little Bible background. The PET aims to be easily understood by second-language speakers of English. However this work is in its beginning stage. The best example of the PET now is the book of Acts, as this book has been more thoroughly edited and published. Other books vary in quality, and we invite comments and participation to correct mistakes and improve places where the PET sounds unnatural in English.
The Common Ilokano Version
The Common Ilokano Version (CIV) is a new translation of the Bible in modern Ilokano.
