Editor notes

Although the purpose of the course is to focus only on bible translations and to prepare the translators to work in this field after they finish their course in Dallas, Texas, there is no doubt that the study of the most translated book ever provides the translator with enough theory and practice in translation so that he can work in other fields if he has other specializations.
