Marriage Research Committee Seeks Translators

The Marriage Research Committee of the Canon Law Society of America is beginning an effort to publish Rotal decisions in English. With the permission of the Dean of the Rota, we soon will ask the Rotal auditors to provide our team of translators with copies of their decisions in order to make this important jurisprudence more widely available. As part of this project, we need to identify translators who are (1) fluent in English and the many other languages quoted in Rotal Sentences and (2) have a background in jurisprudence. If you qualify and would be interested in assisting in our efforts, please contact me privately at the e-mail, FAX, or address indicated below.

Our plan is to have one person translate a given decision from its original language(s) into English and have a second person, also fluent in both English and the language(s) involved, review the translation. Then the translations will be reviewed again for clarity in expressing in English the jurisprudence as well as for grammar and syntax. The resulting English text of each Sentence will be sent to the ponens at the Rota for final review.

I hope that many of you will consider assisting in this major effort to make Rotal jurisprudence available in English in a timely manner so that we may comply with Dignitas Connubii, article 35, and Pastor Bonus, article 126.
