Wycliffe Bible Translators USA

Wycliffe’s vision is to see the Bible accessible to all people in the language they understand best.

For nearly 75 years, Wycliffe has helped people around the world translate the Bible into their own languages. We also help with language development, literacy and other spiritual and physical needs. Wycliffe USA is part of a Global Alliance of organizations partnering all around the world. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word to us — something that everyone should be able to understand in their own language. But over 1,600 languages around the world are still waiting for a translation project to begin. That’s why Wycliffe Bible Translators exists — to help these remaining languages get the Bible for themselves. And we won’t stop until all people have God’s Word in a language they understand.

Mission: To see a Bible translation program in progress in every language still needing one by 2025.

Why Bible Translation?

The Bible is one of the oldest and most popular books of all time. But is it just a book, or is it much more?

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word to us — something that everyone should be able to understand in their own language. But more than 1,600 languages* around the world are still waiting for a translation project to begin.

When people finally get the Bible in their own language, lives often change in amazing ways. People are transformed as they are led to Jesus Christ and a right relationship with God.

That’s why Wycliffe Bible Translators exists — to help speakers of these remaining languages get the Bible for themselves. And we won’t stop until all people have God’s Word in a language they understand.

See for yourself what God is doing around the world and how lives are transformed by understanding the Bible in the language that speaks directly to their heart. Visit wycliffe.org to learn more.
