East Timor     NEW TESTAMENT TRANSLATED INTO EAST TIMOR LANGUAGE
A Tetum language translation of the New Testament, which has been completed, is likely to be published on the world wide web before a printed version is released.
    Tetum, the language most widely spoken in East Timor, was virtually suppressed during the 25 years of Indonesian occupation.
    The translation has been made by Fr Rolando Fernandez, a Salesian who played an active role in the struggle of the East Timorese Church against Indonesian domination.
    Fr Julian Fox of RelPacNews said: "Thought is now being given to how [the translation] might appear. There is a strong possibility that its appearance will be on the internet first of all."
