Explore Bible Translation - Texas

Dallas, TX

Explore Bible Translation (formerly known as 'Total-It-Up!') is a five-day course designed to help you determine if Bible translation, linguistics, and cross-cultural ministry are right for you.

The course includes introductory sessions on phonetics, grammar, cultural learning, translation and language learning, with video and field reports from actual translation projects. We also offer special sessions on Ethnomusicology, Scripture Impact, Language Survey, Literacy and Computers in Translation! Community living offers you the opportunity to have prayer time and other chances to get to know staff and fellow students.

Coming to a Dallas Explore is a great opportunity to visit GIAL- Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics (www.gial.edu) and the International Linguistics Center (http://www.sil.org/history-event/international-linguistics- center)!
