Developing Technology to Protect Biblical Translations in Remote Areas

Wycliffe Associates provides translators living in remote regions with the technology to protect and accelerate the biblical translation.

ORLANDO, FL — Even if the equipment is confiscated or destroyed, if the unthinkable happens, the translation work -weeks or months of translation progress- is protected. Wycliffe Associates provides translators living in remote regions with the necessary technology to protect and accelerate the biblical translation.

Wycliffe Associates, one of the world’s leading bible translation organizations, provides translators living in remote regions with the necessary technology to protect and accelerate the translation of scriptures.

The organization announced the development of bible translation acceleration kits for translators living in isolated areas without internet connectivity.

In the last few years, technology has allowed the bible to reach millions of people in new and innovative ways.

Bill McDonaldRegional Development Director:

At Wycliffe Associates, we accelerate Bible translation work by empowering national translators to provide the Word of God in their own language. We partner with the local church to guide and safeguard that translation, and then involve people from around the world to provide resources, technology, training, and especially support for Bible translation.

Each kit, valued at $2,500, offers access to all the bible translation software a linguistic group needs, along with a satellite internet connection. When a linguistic group receives a kit and translates the scriptures into their mother tongue, they share what they have learned with other linguistic groups in their region.

So far, 549 kits have been installed in 48 countries for 793 linguistic communities.
