Bible Translation Specialists Needed

27January, 2015

Bruce Smith

Wouldn't it be great if there was a simple way for people with years of experience in Bible translation to share all of that experience with aspiring Bible translators?

For many years the only option for this was through translation training centers. Over the years, Wycliffe Associates has built dozens of these training centers around the world, benefitting thousands of translators as they gain experience.

But no matter how many training centers we build, they will still be beyond the reach of too many translators.

Fortunately, the internet provides a helpful alternative!

The current translationStudio app includes fifty Bible stories and hundreds of pages of translators’ notes linked to these stories, so that local translators have the resources they need to produce the highest quality translation. Upcoming translationStudio releases will include books of the Bible and eventually the entire Bible, along with translators’ notes linked to each verse and passage.


This is a view of translationStudio's translation notes for the Open Bible Stories. We want to create resources for Bible translation. This is a view of translationStudio's notes for the Open Bible Stories. We need Bible translation specialists to create resources for actual Bible translation.

Creating the translators’ notes linked to each verse will put these vital resources within easy reach of every translator using the translationStudio app—all at no cost to the translators!

We need to expand our team developing these notes in order to get these resources into the hands of local Bible translators as soon as possible.

Obviously, not everyone reading this blog has Bible translation experience. But if you do or if you know someone who does, please have them email us or call Nancy Neu toll-free at 1-800-THE WORD (800-843-9673) to learn more about this opportunity. Location is not a limitation as long as you have workable internet access.

This is an opportunity for your Bible translation experience to potentially bless thousands of translators, speeding God’s Word to the nations.

Let’s seize this opportunity together!


As President and CEO of Wycliffe Associates, Dr. Bruce A. Smith has made it his life-long goal to reach as many people as possible with the Gospel through the ministry of Bible translation—affecting hundreds of language groups who still need the Bible translated into their heart language. Bruce and his wife Jan have two daughters, two sons-in-love, and are the proud grandparents of four grandsons.

Bible translators are ready... help now!
