I am looking for an English translation of David ben Josef ben David Abudirham's book on tefillah, entitled Abudraham. Does one exist? If so where could I find it?

    The Sefaria project is working on it, here, but the work is nowhere near complete, as far as I could tell. I don't know when they plan on finishing. – MTL Jan 5 '15 at 20:09

  • no. it would be a weird book to translate anyway, since half (maybe even more than half) of the text are quotations from Tanakh – הנער הזה Jan 5 '15 at 21:41
  • @Matt Oh? .... "He certainly succeeded, as no one did before him, in writing a commentary which is very valuable, if not altogether indispensable, to the student, and which deserves to be translated and condensed for the benefit of those who still use the ancient ritual." ~ Jewish Encyclopedia – MTL Jan 11 '15 at 0:40
  • @Shokhet that's a great find even if I disagree... Since I don't use translations though I guess it isn't right for me to judge what's worth translating or not. – הנער הזה Jan 11 '15 at 0:43
