Forum Friends,

The following is the text of a report titled:

INTEREST IN THE CHINESE TRANSLATION, from the last edition of:

URANTIA FOUNDATION'S NEWS ONLINE

[Editorís Note: In the last issue of News Online, (Volume 3, Issue 2, June 2009) we highlighted the need for support in translating The Urantia Book into Chinese. Paul and Gosia Jaworski responded with a hopeful note.]


...Recently we updated our international website and found new links, in many languages, to informative sites and blogs that are related to The Urantia Book. We checked the information on a variety of websites using an automatic translator. The number of these websites is about threefold more than it was in 2004 when we first put our website on the internet. This is very uplifting!

For example, in the Chinese section of our website, there was only one link to a related site for several years. Today there are seven. To our surprise, we found fragments of a Chinese translation of The Urantia Book together with a list of specific terminology of the book in English and Chinese.

In the latest Urantia Foundationís News Online (June 2009), an appeal was made to find readers to review the Chinese translation. Maybe some of the people who created those blogs in Chinese will be able to help in this task. Since they translated those fragments of the book, they must speak Chinese and English. On those blogs/forums some people are very interested in completing the Chinese translation.

Unfortunately, we can not contact them because some blogs require registration and login before sending any message. Such registration necessitates at least a basic knowledge of Chinese, which in our
case is limited to about ten words.

Forum Friends,

The latest news on the Mandarin version:

Translations:


  • Advance the translations of The Urantia Book and revisions now in progress.

    Updating translations is a high priority of Urantia Foundation. A revision process has been set into place for the Spanish, Portuguese and French translations. Work continues on the Chinese and Japanese translations. We are gaining momentum on the Chinese translation with a target date of publication in 2016.
  • Continue refining the new translation software.

    Translation software to support translation projects and translation revision projects has been developed. This software improves the efficiency and accuracy of these projects.
