Wycliffe Associates, an international organization that empowers mother-tongue Bible translators and partners with local churches in the advancement of Bible translation, saw the completion of more Bible translations in 2020 than in any other single year.
“Instead of slowing down because of COVID-19, for some national Bible translators, translation has actually accelerated,” says Tim Neu, Interim President and CEO of Wycliffe Associates.
New Testament translations were completed in 141 languages, and 8 languages now have completed translations of the Old Testament.
“I’ve been humbled to see how believers in difficult areas, some in places of intense persecution and real danger, have been absolutely unwavering in their dedication to the cause,” says Neu.
The organization facilitates new translation start-ups through workshops that teach mother-tongue translators Bible translation methodology for accelerated Bible translation. The process trains mother-tongue Bible translators to work collaboratively to translate the Scriptures for their language communities.
