Getting Started

Source Text

Unless otherwise directed by your professor, use the standard academic text for your translation work. Consult the document below.



There is no single correct way to present your translated text and it is best to consult with your professor. Presenting your translation in a column parallel to the original language can make it convenient for comparison and evaluation. The easiest way to do this is to create a table with three columns, with the source text in the first column, the verse number in the middle column, and your translation in the right column. Use the Template for SBL Style to help get started.

If you need to make notations, use letters to refer to the original language and numbers for your English translation. See the two examples below.
