Bible Translation

We translate the Holy Scriptures into various local languages of Tanzania. Currently, 8 complete local language Bibles have been translated and 41 others have New Testament Bibles.

Translation is done in cooperation with the church.

To ensure accuracy and faithfulness to the original text, translation is done by a minimum of two translators, trained in theology and possessing working knowledge of of Hebrew and Greek languages. This team is then assigned a Translation consultant with wide experience in translation and trained in theology or Bible studies and linguistics.

The work done by the translators is subjected to rigorous review by a committee composed of members recommended by the Church.

This whole process is tedious and costly, requiring large sums of money over a long period of time.
