This book comprises a selection of articles by Irene Melikoff, professor emeritus at the University of Strasbourg, written during her nearly 40 years of research career. While the centre of focus of the articles is early Turkish and Ottoman literature, the author takes a broader point of view to refer to such subjects as culture, history, customs and symbolism of the time. Therefore a lively and complete picture of the era is presented along with literary discussions.

Community Participation in Scripture Version Design

An Experiment in Translating Jonah into Sabaot
ISBN: 978-1-60724-408-0
What strategies can be applied in producing an alternative version of Scripture that is complementary to the existing translation(s) and acceptable to the target audience? This book answers this question by exploring a theoretical strategy for this purpose. On the basis of Christiane Nord’s functionalist theory of translation, the author of this book formulated a Participatory Approach to Bible Translation and experimented with it in translating the book of Jonah into Sabaot, a Kenyan language. This book provides an excellent model for involving communities in the production of Scripture translations.
