Overview of the translation

.......While this is not really an English translation of the scriptures, an English “front translation” was prepared from which the sign language translation was produced, and we felt it was worthwhile to mention it on this site. A videotaped sign language version of the scriptures, this translation is unique to say the least. For those of us who are hearing it is hard to understand why this would be necessary, but as is pointed out on the above referenced site, sign language has its own structure and grammar. As you might understand this is a significant project that began in 1981 with work on the New Testament that was completed in 2004, with work still ongoing for the Old Testament.
