Distribution of Bible

The spread of the Bible goes in 2 main ways:
  1. the number of translations into various languages ​​is increasing,
  2. Active languages ​​are getting smaller.
Every week, one language dies in the world.
Today, less than 100,000 people speak 90% of the languages ​​and are threatened with extinction.
Scientists do not like this very much.
They would like the speakers of languages ​​not to stop using them.
But time is moving inexorably forward and if you want to be on the Internet, then these languages ​​are not suitable. It would be unfair for entire nations to make progress and that they exist only to save their language. We need other ways and this is the task of linguists.

Institute for Bible Translation

An organization that translates the Bible into the languages of small nations. A huge number of translations have been made, many translations in the process, but the translated part of the Scripture can now be downloaded from the site in PDF, for a mobile phone, as a module for its own program.
There is a version online.
All versions of translations go with the notations, a number with small dictionaries - glossaries.

All translations are freely and openly distributed.
