Feel free to add your own sutta translations or any others to which you have the rights.

If you’re using someone else’s translation, make sure to include the correct reference and relevant copyright information. From time to time, we may take translations that have been added here and include them in our main site. We’ll assess: Do we have a translation of this sutta already? Is the translation of good quality? Is the proofing, spelling, and so on, well done? So the better you make your uploads, the more chance you have of contributing to the long term creation of a universal translation of the Early Buddhist Texts.

By adding texts here, you can make a start as a translator and get feedback to help you improve.
