Wycliffe Bible Translators commemorates 80 years of Bible translation work this month.
Founded in 1942, Wycliffe completed its first Bible translation in 1951. The 500th translation was completed in 2000.
Wycliffe estimates there are more than 7,300 spoken or signed languages in use throughout the world today, but only 717 have a complete translated Bible, leaving more than 1.5 billion people who don’t have the full Bible available in their language.
