Last week we started recording the passages from Genesis that have been translated by the five-language translation project. We started out with the Dondo team.
We copied the Bible passages out into a big spreadsheet document so we could break it up into parts – the Narrator, God, Adam, Eve, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, and so on.
The translators were responsible for finding people from their community who would be willing to come in and record different parts.
The recording takes place in a small recording studio on our center. A recording technician who attends a local church with some of our colleagues is doing the recording.
We were able to finish the recording for the Dondo passages in 6 days. We learned some things along the way about how to make the process easier, and some of the pitfalls to avoid, so we hope the next group will be able to finish their recording in 5 days or less.
