Bible Translation

Fellowship Bible Church has gathered a team of people who are volunteering as technical support staff for Bibles International. "BI" leads the production of translations of the Bible into languages of smaller people groups. Our team takes those translations--presently about 45 languages--and builds Android and iOS apps for them, maintains those apps, updates them as translations are updated, and provides other technical support for the translators.

Our goal is to help by making Bible translation quicker and more accurate. Presently is takes up to 20 years to translate an entire Bible. We hope to reduce that time. We also want to help the church with electronic Bible distribution so as to make the Scriptures more readily available worldwide. We have found that an important side-job for us is to recover old translations that are locked into obsolete formats (floppy disks, Word documents) which we can put into a useful modern form (USFM). We are also working to interface the texts with other Bible platforms and archival tools so as to preserve them for future generations.

Please contact Pastor Matt Postiff if you are interested in participating in this worthy effort.

You can see here our translations for Android. Here are translations we have built for iOS devices.
