Formal and Functional Equivalence in Bible Translation
Wendland, Paul O.
MetadataShow full item record
President Wendland takes a close look at two schools of thought in Bible translation work today: formal equivalence and functional equivalence. However, President Wendland does not state a preference between these two styles; rather, he focuses on the positives and negatives of each style, and he discusses how each style is fitting in the appropriate setting. President Wendland’s work here is a must-read for anyone hoping to better understand the challenges that face Bible translators today, and the difficulties involved in choosing just one translation.
