Words only have meaning if they’re understandable. When a man in an African village opens a Bible to read it for the first time, he stands on decades of work done by dedicated translators. Unfortunately, roughly 200 million people still do not have any Scripture in their own language.
Of more than 6,800 languages spoken today, less than 2,000 have a Bible available in that language. We desire that all people have the opportunity to read God’s word in their heart language. We work closely with national believers and language experts to produce accurate translations. Click below to explore our current opportunities for service in Translation and Linguistics. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please share your ideas with us. We want the message of Jesus Christ to go forth in new ways and would love to help you start your missionary journey.
