We believe everyone should have access to a clear, accurate Bible in their own language and in formats that help them hear God speak.

The need

Millions of people still lack God's Word in their primary language. Millions more lack an accurate Bible translation in modern language and in a format that matches their learning preferences and needs.

Meeting the need

Since 1809, Biblica has proclaimed the gospel by providing God's Word to more than 650 million people in their heart languages. We currently have 44 Bible translation and revision projects in 30 languages spoken by over 3 billion people.

Our Bible translations

Biblica translates the full Bible for major languages with 1 million or more speakers. We translate from the original Greek and Hebrew texts to convey Scripture's original meaning accurately in contemporary language.

We begin with the New Testament, followed by the Old Testament and then study notes. Once a translation is completed, we conduct a first printing of the new Bibles for pastors and ministry leaders

Current Translation Projects

Imagine if there were no Bible in your language. This is the reality millions of people face today. God’s Word has never been translated for them. Or the only Bible translation they have is one that’s not as clear or accurate as it should be.

We believe everyone deserves a reliable, easy-to-read Scripture translation in their heart language and in a format they can engage. That’s why we’re working to produce over 30 Bible translations in print, digital text, and digital audio. Together, these translations have the potential to reach more than 3 billion people.

Here’s a list of Bible translation projects underway, as well as some recently completed translations of Scripture soon to be published for the first time.
