Now therefore saith the Lord: Be converted to me with all your heart, in fasting, and in weeping, and in mourning. And rend your hearts, and not your garments, and turn to the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful

New ICEL Translation in South Africa

According to this British pastor, the new Mass translation is now commonly available in South Africa, and is scheduled to be introduced into general usage in that country in December. Some places there have begun to use a recent draft already.

Comments by Fr. Z on bits of the new translation:
the creed
the confiteor
Lord, I am not worthy
2nd Eucharistic prayer
the Roman Canon (aka 1st Eucharistic prayer)

All good news, however one commentator notes that the draft approved by the American bishops has alterations, for example changing “dew” to “the outpouring of your spirit,” so in the United States we may have to settle for a slightly simplified version of the new translation.
