Abstract

This paper offers an intercultural approach to Bible translation ownership in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo). It examines Bible translation ownership models in the current culture in this country, past church cultures, and original or early biblical cultures. After showing the similarities and differences in ownership models between the chosen frames of reference, it suggests a way forward for effective ownership of the Bible translation process in DR Congo, including the holding and protection of copyright by an organisation frame of the target linguistic community.
