The Buddhist Centre Online now hosts well over 100 spaces featuring one or another aspect of life and practice in the Triratna Buddhist community. One that has been quietly growing throughout 2013 is the Triratna Translations project - now featuring 30 languages and counting.

The project aims to translate the main texts and ceremonies used in the Triratna Buddhist Community into as many of the world’s languages as possible. It recently celebrated its 30th language with the additions of Malayalam, principal language of Kerala in southern India, and some unusual ‘back-translations from English into Pali, traditional language of the Buddhist scriptures .

Languages featured so far are - Afrikaans, Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Esperanto, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Malayalam, Marathi, Norwegian, Pali, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Telugu, Thai, Turkish and Welsh . Questions, comments and suggestions for further contributions are all very welcome - please email us at translations [at] triratnadevelopment.org.
