This post is a heads up that there will be an important post in the near future from one of the other blog contributors, Mike Sangrey, somewhat related to donut translations--although Mike will probably focus more on big picture translations which are glued together partly by what is missing in donut translations.
I should introduce Mike to you all. Mike has a gift of seeing the big picture (I'm more of a detail person) and has allowed God to use that gift to help others understand some very important principles about good Bible translation. Mike has been a moderator of the Bible translation email discussion lists with me for a number of years and I very much appreciate his work there, as well as his comraderie, and dry wit. I think you will appreciate's Mike's posts also.
