Maithili books complete field testing
After two months of field testing and translation checks, the final Maithili translation has been completed. The original work was first given to workers in the state of Bihar in northern India for assessment in November.
Maithili, also known as Maitli, Maitili, Methli, Tirahutia, Bihari, Tirhuti, and Tirhutia, is a member of the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European language family. Maithili is spoken in India, primarily in the state of Bihar. There are approximately 34 million speakers in India and southern Nepal.
Publication of the books will begin in March and distribution of the books is scheduled to begin later that month. Electronic copies of the translation are available at the DOWNLOADS link of the A Simple Word website.
