Motives and Bible translation

A Friend of Christ questions whether it has been right to question the motives of those who have translated the TNIV and ESV.

He concludes:
I think it's time we stop questioning the motives of those who want to bring us the Word, and look at the translations for what they are. Otherwise, we're not just hurting ourselves, but others as well. We who study this sort of thing need to be able to be objective in our recommendations, and not reject certain translations because we question the motives of the fallible people who made them.
I agree.
