Hungarian Quran translation project


The biggest Hungarian Islam online community, the iszlam.com started in October 2009 a new Quran translation project. I am the leader of this project. Our work divides to 4 parts.

1. 4 sisters translate the English Quran translations to Hungarian language (We take the King Fahd Complex English translations, and also the Ali Ünal English Quran translation as basis. We are using the Ibn Kathir tafsir to the interpretation).
2. I am checking, editing and unifying the Hungarian translations made by our sisters.
3. My wife is checking the texts from Hungarian language point of view.
4. Dr. Adel Alsabahi will check the texts from Arabic language and from religious point of views insha Allah.

Our sisters could translate 750 ayas in 8 weeks since we started our Quran translation project, and I could check and unify 450 ayas in this time.

Together with the the earlier translated, and published texts we are finished the:
41% of the translation (2536 ayas)
21% of the editing, unifying (1326 ayas)
11% of the Hungarian language proofreading (669 ayas)
24 % of the religious proofreading (1488 ayas)

This is 24 % of the whole project.

The English translation, editing and unifying takes about 40 weeks insha Allah. The religious proofreading takes 40 weeks more insha Allah. This is altogether 80 weeks, ca. one and a half year insha Allah. This time we need, if we will get founds to our work. If not, it takes even more time.
