Vatican newspaper: translator Nida a ‘new Jerome’
Catholic World News - September 02, 2011
L’Osservatore Romano has paid tribute to Eugene Nida, the recently deceased Protestant scholar who developed the dynamic-equivalence theory, which emphasizes “thought-for-thought” translations over word-for-word ones.
“If, in fact, millions of people throughout the world have been able to read the Bible with all of its nuances in their own language, it was made possible thanks to the work of this man,” Giulia Galleotti wrote in the Vatican newspaper.
