My 63-year old mother sent me New Year's greetings in my target language! πŸ₯° She doesn't speak any Hebrew.

She searched for some translations and sent one that she hoped to be correct. I appreciated it so much. I feel really valued since learning Hebrew has become a big part of my life and is filling me with joy.

It makes me so happy that she went out of her way to send me this and totally caught me by surprise!

(bonus native German greetings for those who learn to practice with ;)).

Edit: I now realize that it might come across as if I thought 63-years is too old to be tech-savvy enough to do so. I should have worded that better! In case of my mother, it is out of her comfort zone, not tech-wise, but language wise since in her generation, there wasn't put much emphasis on language learning on in our region, and she barely speaks a bit of English. So it might be more a generational/local/educational thing that I tried to abbreviate by writing her age. Apologies if someone got offended!

Jehovah's witnesses indiscriminate bible translations into obscure languages can potentially record and save endangered languages. Muslims and Jews should so the same with quran and torah translations rather than elevating Arabic and Hebrew above all other language.

This is one of the few cases where I, as an atheist, would like to see the word of God preserved, not so much for the preservation of God (he's loud enough and doesn't need more broadcasting), but for the preservation of the languages themselves.

Just as an example, I'd rather have a Navajo bible/quran/torah than no Navajo formal written texts at all. This should be encouraged, regardless of which side of God believing you stand, as these translated holybooks will become cultural artefacts, not just religious artefacts, should a specific endangered language become extinct.

Is standard Italian a revived historical language like Hebrew?

So biblical Hebrew was spoken in the BC era, and afterwards used as a written language until it was revived as a widely spoken language from the 19th century onwards.

Similarly, the medieval Florentine dialect of Tuscan was spoken in the 13th century, and afterwards used as a written language (standard Italian) until it was revived as widely spoken language from the 19th century onwards.

So is it fair to say standard Italian is a revived historical language like Hebrew - which would explain why it is so much closer to Latin than most Romance languages?

[asked this in the small questions thread but I thought it's more than a yes/no question so would be worth a main thread]

Question for someone seeking to break into translation work (English-Hebrew language pair)

I'm asking on behalf of my husband because he doesn't really understand Reddit. :)

He speaks both English and Hebrew at a native level and has an extremely high vocabulary in both languages. In the past, he has translated some short stories as a hobby/passion project.

His usual line of work has been severely affected by the pandemic, and as I (his wife) am 7 months pregnant, we're trying to figure out ways for him to earn an income with minimum Covid exposure risk.

Things we're trying to figure out:

  1. What's a good place to start? Are there any worthwhile agencies that offer work to translation noobs? Should he scout for private clients directly via LinkedIn/social media/etc.?

  2. Is it necessary to have a professional website with samples?

  3. What's a typical pay rate structure to present to clients or agencies?

  4. Are there any particular skills you need to hone other than just being fully fluent in two languages?

  5. Do successful translators typically niche down to a particular subject? (i.e. legal, medical, etc.)

Any bones you can throw us will be helpful.

God's name "Jehovah" is super important, but yet, all we have is YHWH in ancient Hebrew (a sucky no vowel written language) and NOTHING in the Greek (has vowels). Logic for the win!

Knowing God's name is the most important thing in the universe, according to Jehovah's Witnesses.

Yet neither they, nor anyone else, know what it is.

Why did the Ancient Hebrew and Phoenician script look so different despite being used to write the same language?

From what I understand, Phoenician and Hebrew were mutually intelligible as Canaanite languages and their scripts functioned similarly as well, both being abjads with the same letters. Despite this, their scripts differ wildly in the way they look: the name of the city of Sidon is written as 𐀑𐀃𐀍 in Phoenician and Χ¦Φ΄Χ™Χ“Χ•ΦΉΧŸ in Hebrew. I thought it might have had to do with the time scale or geography, but it seems the Phoenician script was used around the same time as Hebrew and several kingdoms surrounding Israel and Judah used the Phoenician script rather than their own derivatives. It seems that while Hebrew developed its own distinct script, everyone else in Canaan/Phoenicia kept writing the same way. Why?
