Gordon Hay, a partner in the Edinburgh office of CMS Cameron McKenna who heads the firm's banking and finance team in Scotland, whose bio lists as his only language "English," has completed a six-year project translating the New Testament into his native Scots dialect, Doric.
The Acks o the Apostles, Chaptir 14, verse 8
**Noo, at Lystra, there was a cripple mannie vrang amo e feet fae e day he wis born, nivver haein waalkit. He wis hearknin tae Paul as he spak, an Paul, leukin him straicht in e ee an seein he hid e faith tae be made aa better, says till him wi a lood vice: "Stan straicht up on yer feet!" He jumpit up an set oot waalkin. An fan e crood saa fit Paul hid deen, they roart oot o them in their ain tongue, "E gods hiv come dooon till hiz in e form o a mannie."
Personally, I'm looking forward to the podcast version.
