Nida School of Bible Translation
Religious discourse translation – more specifically, Bible translation – lies at the very heart of the mission that the Nida Institute and its parent organization, American Bible Society, carry out. The Nida Institute entrusts this work to a Translations Unit that collaborates extensively with its project partners.
Ongoing developments in biblical and translation studies along with the rapid deployment of software and digital solutions within theological education make continuing education a must for religious professionals. The Nida Institute customizes programs of professional development that are mobile and up to date. It offers graduate level classes in Bible engagement, biblical studies, globalization, media-translation, and software tools.
Biblical research and translation scholarship continually refresh and improve ABS’s line of products and services. Thanks to several provisions and venues for such research and scholarship, the Institute advances translation studies, critically examines religious discourse, and advocates for new approaches to the theory and practice of translation. Among these provisions is the Nida School for Translation Studies and the journal translation.
