12-15 March 2013 IBT hosted a workshop, whose participants were mostly exegetical advisers. The seminar was devoted to the study of a special software programme called FLEx (full name - FieldWorks Language Explorer), a product of SIL. This programme allows the user to record lexical material, and then to manage, create and export glossaries, to create interlinear texts to analyze features of the discourse of the language, to study the morphology of the language, and also to collect and organize materials related to the target language culture.

From 12 to 16 February 2013 IBT held in its office a workshop for 14 participants from 10 translation projects (Abkhaz, Avar, Chukchi, Digor, Kalmyk, Kumyk, Lak, Lezgi, Nanai and Nogai). Among them were future Bible translators, philological editors, exegetical advisers and comprehension testers. All the participants were professionals and experts in their own fields of knowledge. But in the near future they will have to face a new challenge - to master the art of Bible translation.
