The Colorado Springs Guidelines address gender issues in Bible translation, in response to "gender-neutral" Bible translations.

According to two participants at the Colorado Springs meeting, the final list of guidelines was compiled by reference to two separate lists drafted by each of the two ostensibly opposing parties who had agreed to the meeting to discuss their differences. One list was supplied by concerned scholars and pastors, the other by Ken Barker on behalf of translators and publishers.[1]

The guidelines have found wide support amongst opponents of gender neutral translations, but have been criticised by supporters of gender neutral translations.[original research?]
