ACCELERATE GLOBAL BIBLE TRANSLATIONThere are still almost 3,500 languages without Scripture. At the current pace, it will take over 100 years to eradicate Bible poverty. Your gift will enable us to collaborate with other Bible translation organizations including Wycliffe SIL, United Bible Societies, American Bible Society and others to improve and accelerate Bible translation through:
1. INNOVATIVE TRANSLATION TECHNOLOGY: Your gift will enable us to complete development of unique software solutions that remove tedious tasks and enable translators to maintain accuracy while speeding up the Bible translation process.
2. CHURCH-BASED BIBLE TRANSLATION: We will test a Bible translation program for church members in Dehradun, India. If successful, it will enable churches everywhere to participate fully in the process of accurate Bible translation by removing the bottlenecks. More people doing translation will eradicate Bible poverty sooner.
3. DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION: By 2020 there will be 6.1 billion smartphone users worldwide -- over 700 million in China alone. So far, we’ve had over 31 million page views of our Chinese Standard Bible New Testament on smartphone apps like WeDevote, YouVersion, BibleGateway, and BibleHub. Your gift will enable us to drop God's Word right into the pockets of the Smartphone Generation.
About Global Bible Initiative: Our founder’s commitment in 1949 to share God’s Word with post-WWII Japan still inspires us today. We believe that Bible translation is central to the Gospel because the incarnation of Christ is itself an act of translation. Leveraging the latest translation and distribution technology, we won’t be satisfied until all people everywhere have Scripture in their heart language. This also drives our desire to serve the entire Bible translation community with software tools and biblical, and linguistic data that enables them to complete their calling more effectively and efficiently.
