Abstract

This paper tries to see the repudiation of the ‘Minangkabau Bible Translation App’ in Google Play platform by Minangkabau society. By using the translation theory of Eugene Nida and Charles R. Taber that mentioned the religious affiliation in a language is one of the sociological levels of language. This affiliation is a homogenization effort and as a mark of pride in that society. Through this theory, the researchers looked at the reasons for this rejection. The results show that the rejection of the Minangkabau community for the Minangkabau Bible Translation App is based on the language and cultural background of the Minangkabau that is affiliated with Islam as their philosophy “Practice the Customary Philosophy of the Basandi Syarak-Syarak Basandi Kitabullah”. This makes the Minangkabau community’s identity disturbed with the existence of this translation.
