Bible's New Testament translated into Doric by Gordon Hay
- 28 August 2012
- From the section NE Scotland, Orkney & Shetland
An Aberdeenshire author has completed what is believed to be the first translation of the Bible's New Testament into Doric.
Solicitor Gordon Hay's work has taken six years.
The Bible is available in hundreds of languages, but Mr Hay was determined to make it available in the north east of Scotland dialect he was raised with.
He started by translating some readings for the Buchan Heritage Society and enjoyed it so much he carried on.
The Longside Church elder said some sections were very challenging.
