Translation

Adaptations or editing of the content are not allowed, with the exception of translations. In fact, I would love to see Putting Words in Our Mouths translated into other languages. It is for this reason that I have not oversimplified the English, so that it would retain the full meanings when translated.

If a translation is made, it must follow the guidelines above and must be made available with the same Creative Commons license as the original.

Ideally, translations should use the target language for all text except for the highlighted English words and phrases and the example sentences. Biblical passages in the target language must come from versions in the pubic domain or from publishers who have given permission for their use.

Here is a sample translation in Chinese, using traditional characters.
