WikiProject Wiki Bible

Wikiproject Wiki Bible is a wikiproject to create an original, open content translation of the source text of the Bible that will be in the Public Domain.

It is located at Translation:Bible.

This is a work in progress. Everyone is welcome.

If you know Greek or Hebrew, add your name to the list of participants and claim a chapter! Or if you don't want to make that commitment yet, check somebody else's work. If you don't know Greek or Hebrew, we can still very much use your English skills in proof-reading and tweaking the text.

See Frequently asked questions for any initial questions you may have, and discuss the project here.

Translation guidelinesEdit

  • Stay faithful to the original source text and do not borrow from copyrighted modern versions. The text should be as literal as possible while still translating the correct meaning into good English.
  • Keep the translation simple, non-technical, robust, and easy-to-understand.
  • Avoid sectarian disputes, possibly by footnoting variant translations.
  • Share your sources. (In the page talk put all details about which source text you used.--and any other such details about the translation.)
  • Don't hesitate to add footnotes. All kinds of footnotes are welcome, including if you're really not sure about how something should be translated. Either another editor will see your footnote, and fix the text, or it is a place where translating well is really difficult, and this info is good to be passed on to the reader. (In case of ambiguity in the text, put the other possible renderings in the footnotes.)
