Dear all,

Actually their Chinese translation is quite good. A very modern

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

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

the deaf. I am especially interested in their Chinese and various
language translations. However, I have no way of evaluating the
quality of
their translations since I can't read any language except English :-(.
is why I'm wondering if anyone on this list knows anything about the
