Translation in Africa

Do you feel passionate about your work, but wish you could use your skills for an eternal purpose? The Bible translation movement may be the place for you--at least 200 million people worldwide still need God’s Word in their language. Wycliffe’s mission is to see a Bible translation program in progress in every language still needing one by 2025.

Bible translation takes more than linguists and translators. God can use you, with the skills you already have, to help provide God’s Word for a world in need. If you are involved in one of these jobs, you could be part of finishing the Bible translation task! Click a category below to find out more.

Note: Opportunities may be available overseas or in some cases in the U.S. Most Wycliffe positions are not salaried and members must raise their own prayer and financial support. Though that may initially sound daunting, there is help: Wycliffe has developed a training program to help you develop your partnership network. With this training most people are able to raise their full support in 12 to 15 months.
