We’re currently involved in over 450 translation projects across more than 100 countries. Around half of these are first translations – meaning the communities waiting for them to finish will be receiving Scripture in their own language that they have never had before!
In addition to the translation projects themselves, we prioritise translation capacity-building around the world, and are currently running a three-year global training schedule to equip and develop local translators and teams. The schedule runs from 2013-2015, and already 1143 participants from 122 countries have been through capacity-building training.
We are so excited about how this local empowerment program will enable more translation work to happen and more people to be impacted with the Bible!
None of this happens, though, without prayer and support from all over the world! To get involved or learn more about how you can support Bible translation work, contact your local Bible Society.
