Formatting Guidelines

To support Christians around the world we, with the support of our donors, make available to you our studies on the site for the free non commercial use in your ministry. We would love for you to  translate our studies into your own language and use the translations in your ministry. Our only requirement is that you acknowledge our permission and copyright and you send the material back to us so we can post it for others to use. We rely on volunteer translators, so we can't pay you. But the ministry that you provide in translating studies into your language will greatly benefit your friends and neighbors in your country who don't speak English.

  • Find the study you want to translate and then send us an email telling us of your intention and to make sure nobody else is already working on that study in your language.
  • Try to follow our paragraph styles as you translate. This means that you assign a Heading 1 or Heading 2 or Body Text or Quote paragraph styles to those paragraphs that we assigned those styles to. 
  • Email us the new translation and we will post it.
