I have heard that the Bibles that are translated into other languages around the world today are all translated from the English translation of the Bible. In other words, the original language text is not used to translate the Bible into the modern copies that are being read the world over now. Is this true? Or was I misinformed? & if this is true, do you think that this affects greatly the way that the Biblical text is perceived (as filtered through English language & culture 1st & then roughly translated into languages of cultures that are not the same) & it's accuracy of translation? Do you want me to clarify my questions more?
Anyway, I just checked out your site, & it looks interesting. My dad has a copy of the Bible in Aramaic, & he always used to bring it along to church services to see how different the translations from the English Bibles were from his translation. They were quite different at times.
