This journal is the result of a unique project involving more than 30 volunteers in 7 countries. The Global Humanistic Buddhism Journal Translation Project’s worldwide team worked collaboratively using an internet-based translation portal developed specifically for the project. The portal’s online glossary provided consistent terminology. We are grateful to everyone who participated in this project. Their collaborative efforts allowed for all of the articles to be translated, published, edited, and proofread within 7 months.
