About

It has been about 200 years since the publication of Young's Literal Translation (YLT) of the Bible. Up to this day, there are no new literal versions of the Torah in English except YLT. This project intends to correct this mistake in two languages - English and Russian. 

Project's goal is to create two versions of the translation. One will be a an Interlinear translation of the entire Torah. Here is a sample:

The second version will be a Sublinear version. Here is a sample: 

 Here is a Russian Interlinear version:

 And here is a Russian Sublinear version:

In total, there are going to be 4 books: 1 English Interlinear, 1 Russian Interlinear, 1 English sublinear volume and 1 Russian sublinear volume. 

All versions will be provided in a form of printable and searchable PDF files.

As you can see from the images, the Hebrew Masoretic Text is presented in the Sofer Stam font, which basically mimics the actual Torah Scroll.

As of today I have completed about 10% of the entire project by myself, however, I desperately need funding so I can finish the job.

Also, I would love to hear from you about including Strong's numbers into the Sublinear versions.

I expect to complete the project in 20 month, by June 2016. However, I may complete it sooner (with God's help, of'course :)

The funding that I am requesting will be spend as follows:

1) 80% will go directly to support the project. These funds will help me to work on the project full-time.

2) 10% Kickstarter/Amazon/Bank fees

3) 10% Editing costs.

Please visit my web sites and my blog for more information about the project and myself.

Thank you for your support,

Sincerely,

Aleksandr Sigalov.
