Sprichst du Deutsch?
Do you speak German? Over 100 million people in the world do. We have known for many years that German was one of the “world languages.” It is the 11th Most Spoken language in the world. However, until recently, we had no stated interest in a translation of Simple Truths in German.
But, at the recent Gospel Coalition National Conference in Indianapolis (April 3-5), that changed. A renewed connection with an old acquaintance put us in contact with well qualified and interested translators. Other conversations led us to networks which can use the books in Germany, Belgium, Austria, and Switzerland, and also in unexpected places like Paraguay, Costa Rica, Argentina, and Namibia.
The translation project is now underway under the oversight of our friend Paul Stewart of www.teutoniq.com in Ireland. The first translation draft is due for evaluation the week of June 11-17. As soon as we have the translation checking process completed, we will post an eBook on the A Simple Word website for free download. After that, we will finalize agreements with ministry partners for wider distribution.
