This five-day course provides participants with an introduction to the academic and
ministry aspects of translation and linguistics.

Discover Bible translation at “TOTAL It Up!” (Taste of Translation and Linguistics), where intense learning meets interactive fun!

During this five-day course, real-world translators introduce you to the ins and outs of Bible translation through fast-paced, stimulating presentations and fun class activities. Topics include grammar, phonetics and phonology, language and culture learning, translation and semantics, literacy and ethnomusicology, and sign-language translation.

You’ll also be inspired by a wealth of testimonies and videos that bridge the gap between academics and the real-world adventure of being a Bible translator.

Plus, an informal community atmosphere with shared housing, meals and time for Bible study and prayer will help make this an exciting week you’ll never forget!
