Hi all,

Does anyone know anything about the World Bible Translations Center 
(www.wbtc.com)? There have done translations of the Bible into a number of 
languages and have a number of them on there website for free download. They 
even allow electronic redistribution (although they require premission to 
post translations on a server). They seem to focus on easy of readability. In 
fact their English version is the Easy to Read Version which was targeted at 
the deaf. I am especially interested in their Chinese and various Indic 
language translations. However, I have no way of evaluating the quality of 
their translations since I can't read any language except English :-(. That 
is why I'm wondering if anyone on this list knows anything about the
