Textbook Translation

TEXTBOOK TRANSLATION
Where do donations go?

HEBREW

ABA members in Israel have finished their work on translating the ABA text into Hebrew. Now the GSA has hired a professional translator to edit their work one section at a time as we receive the funds to cover it.  Currently, the Preface, Chapters 1-2, and the Preamble for Meetings have been completed!  We can only continue this work as donations come in so please consider making a contribution.

This will be the first translation of the ABA textbook into another language.

Testimonials from some members on why the book needs to be translated:

  • “My name is S____ and I am a member of ABA Israel. The main reason I wish this book will be translated is that I hope to get deeper into our literature, and this cannot happen since my English is not good enough.
  • When I read a message of ABA in Hebrew it moves me in ways that don`t exist in English.
  • I simply realise what is my problem and the solution for it.  The ability to identify and the healing power of words.”

RUSSIAN

A dedicated committee of Russian and English-speaking ABA members have completed over 80% of this translation in the past year and a half.  The GSA is requesting your financial help to start building a fund for finalizing this translation. Once donations have started to accumulate we plan to have the Preamble for Meetings published first.
