Arlington Statement on Bible Translation

Bibles International joined with a group of Bible translators, theologians, pastors, missionaries, Greek and Hebrew scholars, and linguists, to draft a statement that promotes conservative principles regarding contextualization in Bible translation. There are various trends and ideas in recent Bible translation theory, many of which are helpful, and some of which are well-intentioned but nonetheless problematic. The Arlington Statement on Bible Translation is a set of simple principles that addresses the most important issues related to contextualization. The Statement will help pastors to determine which Bible translators and Bible societies they would be willing to partner with. Bibles International fully subscribes to this Statement.
