Para 70 milhões pessoas, a linguagem dos sinais é sua linguagem do coração.
Há mais de 400 idiomas de sinais únicos no mundo.
95% desses idiomas de sinais NÃO têm tradução bíblica.
TRADUÇÃO DA BÍBLIA PARA SURDOS
Treinamento e Recursos para Tradução e Envolvimento de Surdos na Bíblia
Adam Van Goor compartilha sobre o início do programa CDS de Jerusalém, e a necessidade de linguagem de origem na tradução da Bíblia para surdos-mudos.
Study at the Center for Deaf Scriptures
The goal of CDS is to enhance access, understanding and application of the whole Word of God among the deaf by providing strategic training and resources for deaf Bible translators together with our partners.
EDUCATION AND TOOLS
CDS addresses the need for high-level training and resources which are adapted to the specific requirements of Deaf translators by:
- Offering training taught in sign language that is tailored to the unique culture and learning style characteristic of Deaf learners, emphasizing visual access to information, group discussion, and interactive learning opportunities with instructors and fellow students
- Equipping students with a visual picture of the land, artifacts, culture, fauna and flora of the Bible
- Creating resources that address the unique questions raised by sign language Bible translation
- Offering biblical Hebrew courses that utilize a methodology appropriate for Deaf students, allowing them to comprehend the written Hebrew source text through visual signs and images
Deaf Specialization for MA in Classical Hebrew & Translation Consulting
This specialization creates an avenue for Deaf students to study in our MA in Classical Hebrew & Translation Consulting. Accommodations are made so that the content can be clearly understood by Deaf students. Most of the classes will be interpreted into sign language, while some classes are taught in sign language. In addition to the immersive residential program in Jerusalem, the MA-CHT Deaf Specialization is being adapted for extension learning.
We utilize our unique location in Israel to provide an immersion environment in written Hebrew and Israeli Sign Language, which enhances the process of learning Biblical Hebrew. We employ Deaf instructors in Israel who are already experienced in teaching Hebrew to Deaf students. We also provide supplementary instruction through qualified tutors who can sign and communicate directly with Deaf students.
The MA also has an optional Deaf Specialization which includes courses in special skill sets that consultants will need for working with sign language Bible translation projects.
Signed Exegetical Resources
Contextually and linguistically accurate exegetical resources for Deaf translators & consultants, delivered using Deaf-friendly methods and media, both accelerate Deaf Bible translation and improve its quality. These resources will assist Deaf consultants and translators to better understand the original meaning of the Scriptures so that they can more clearly communicate the meaning in sign language. Illustrative media in translations will enhance understanding and enliven the Scriptures. As a result, Deaf people around the whole world will understand the Word of God in a deep and impactful way.
Os Dez Mandamentos em Língua de Sinais Israelense
"Nosso Deus é um Deus que cuida daqueles que são esquecidos, redime aqueles que foram rejeitados... É gratificante enfrentar o que parece impossível do ponto de vista do mundo e observar como Deus faz um caminho... O sucesso desses estudantes inspirará outros tradutores surdos que desejam aprender hebraico bíblico e demonstrar que isso pode ser feito. Eles estão abrindo uma trilha para realizar o que antes era considerado impraticável".
-Adam Van Goor, Diretor Associado, Centro para as Escrituras Surdas
