I've heard translations into Swahili and such are being made by missionaries but I don't know if/where they are online.

17? I was told that this site contained the Arabic version of the DL: can someone who reads Arabic confirm this?

http://www.pgc-lb.org/arabic/Faith1.shtml

My google translator tells me these are sacraments explained.

17. Swahili from orthodoxytz.com.

When I've talked to one priest from Kenya he said when a member of a particular tribe enters the Seminary in Nairobi during his studies he has to translate services into his language.

That's pretty cool.

How do they determine how good a translation it is though?

They don't do it alone. They are overseen by the lecturers.
