Hello, I am a Latin that occasionally attends a Melkite Divine Liturgy. I notice that the priest uses a translation that is different from the official Melkite translation - using "unto the ages of ages" as well as various other diversions from the text. The Melkite website says "All other translations are suppressed." Is it common for clergy to use translations that differ from the official translation?

Sometimes I wonder, should it be infact better to have more freedom in using different translations?!?🤔

In the Melkite Church the use of different translations is tolerated. At the parish I belong to here in Virginia both the priest and the congregation use "ages of ages". It's actually a more literal translation.
