The Bible Translator is the leading academic journal dedicated to the theory and practice of Bible translation. It exists firstly to serve those directly involved in Bible translation, aiming to encourage sharing of the results of their research and records of their practice. It also provides a forum for a wider community of scholars and students.
For the past 40 years it has appeared in two series – Technical Papers in January and July, and Practical Papers in April and October. Beginning with the April 2013 issue, TBT now appears three times a year, and contains both practical and technical papers.
