Over the past year, we have implemented a substantial number of improvements and new features in Bible Survey Online, including a total make-over of its content.
We now hope to take this BS tool abroad in order to support other training centers and churches. The platform has already been set up in English, Croatian, Polish, Italian and Russian and only requires a few finishing touches before it can go online. We have received further requests for Spanish, French, Turkish, Arabic, Finnish, Danish and Romanian. We would like to go even beyond that, to Asia, and make our platform available in Mandarin Chinese and Hindi as well. Translation costs for the entire platform (interface and theological content) amount to $ 3000.
We also draw on The MacArthur Quick Reference To The Bible, which is already available in some languages but not in others. It costs about $ 4000 to translate this book into another language. Depending on the language, we arrive at a cost of up to $ 7000 for the total translation of both the platform and the book.
We will need a total budget of $ 63,000 in order to handle all requests and cover all translation costs.
