Make We Join Head Translate De Real Nigerian Pidgin Bible. by udoh2k: 7:38pm On Jan 21, 2012
The web application is under construction, and all features will work soonest with your support. The site is http://www.nigerianpidginbible.org. Below is the intro:

The Nigerian Pidgin Bible (NPB) Project is an effort to translate the Holy Bible into Nigerian Pidgin.

Unlike other Bible translation projects where an individual or restricted team embarked on the exercise, the NPB Project is designed to be open. Any interested Nigerian Christian who understands and speaks Pidgin English can register/log-in and translate a verse or two. Alternative translations (Pidgin2, Pidgin3) may be added if you feel otherwise about the first translation (Pidgin1); or you may just vote for an existing translation.The translation (Pidgin1, Pidgin2 or Pidgin3) with the highest votes will be extracted at the end of the Project.

Long Term Goal: The ultimate goal of the Project upon completion is to produce/publish a "Nigerian Pidgin Bible [NPB]-- By Nigerians for Nigerians", that people can read and understand (as it were) in their own language.

Short Term Goal: The immediate spiritual benefit of the NPB Project is to create/awaken the desire/interests of Nigerians to Bible-reading with a view to understanding the Bible verse-by-verse as they try to translate it,

It is hoped that at the end of this Project, the translators can say they "read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them [others] to understand the reading"-(KJV)Nehemiah 8:8.

So, make we join head translate de Bible for Naija Pidgin.

Is it possible to produce a "real" pidgin bible for Nigerians? Yes, it is possible if you volunteer to translate a verse or two of the Holy Bible into Nigerian Pidgin. The project site to achieve this feat is now ready at http://www.nigerianpidginbible.org. Register, Login and translate a verse or two into pidgin.

Up to three translations can be given for each verse. If you like or prefer a translation somebody else have done, you can simply click on the 'vote' button: that will increase the rating of that translation.

You can provide support to the project thru (1)constructive criticism to the contact on the web website (2) Finance , to enable the maintenance of the site and continuity of the project (3) Telling people about the project or liking it on facebook http://www.facebook.com/nigerianpidginbible , and (4) Translating or voting a verse or two.
