Welcome to Wycliffe Bible Translators Australia. By our name you can easily deduce that Wycliffe is an organisation that is involved in Bible translation. However it is not in the major languages of the world, such as English, or Mandarin, or Spanish, that Wycliffe concentrates its efforts. Rather, Wycliffe Australia, as part of the Wycliffe Global Alliance is committed to the minority language communities of the world. These communities often do not have an alphabet or basic literacy and education in their mother tongue, and are amongst the poorest and most disenfranchised communities in the world.
The good news is today there is more Bible translation going on into the languages of the world than at any time in history. Bible translation, linguistics, and cross-cultural living is difficult work with no promises of an easy life, but it is a great movement to be a part of. There are more openings for volunteers and partners than we can fill. There may indeed be a place for you. Welcome to the modern day Bible translation movement.
