Macro-Approach of the Tunen Bible Translation

An Application of the Key Biblical Technical Termini


Joseph Mbongue

The translation of the Bible in African languages is mostly done from the cultural language to the target language. By doing so, we try to transfer all the cultural values of the source language into the target one. We do not consider other elements such as the culture of the target language, the history, the religion, the political system, as well as the ethic of the target language.
