Types of Translations

Choosing a translation can be tough. There are two different methods that scholars use to translate the Bible. Most translations are a mixture of the two.

  • Formal equivalence: a word-for-word translation

  • Dynamic equivalence: a thought-for-thought translation

The New King James Version lies more toward the formal equivalence end of the scale. The New International Version is an example of a more dynamic equivalence translation.
