Carol is a translation consultant. Her main responsibility is to help translators make sure that their draft of Scripture is faithful to the original and sounds natural to local speakers. For example, she checks that translators haven’t added to or left off bits from the source text. She also checks that the meaning of the source text comes through the translation in a clear way.

John’s main role is the coordinator for the linguistics department of SIL CAR. Among other things, the department’s linguists help local speakers develop alphabets and other writing conventions that are easy to use, help make sure that translated Scripture sounds natural, and develop language-related tools like dictionaries and grammar.
