Optimal equivalence Bibles, also known as balanced equivalence or optimal translation, is a translation approach that seeks to strike a balance between the accuracy of word-for-word translations and the naturalness of thought-for-thought translations. The primary goal of optimal equivalence is to faithfully convey the meaning and intent of the original text while maintaining clarity and readability in the target language.
In the CSB optimal equivalence, the translators prioritize capturing the author's original meaning and message, taking into account the nuances of the source language and culture. They carefully choose words and expressions that best convey the sense of the original text without being overly literal or overly paraphrased.
