With Bible translation still needed for an estimated 1,800 languages, digital tools are opening up new ways of taking on the task, said Mark Stedman, Wycliffe's vice president of information technology. In the past, converting the scriptures into a new language might take decades, since a translator would need schooling in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic before the real work even began.

However, Wycliffe is more focused on helping communities overseas translate the Bible for themselves within a much shorter time frame. This approach reflects a broader shift away from the notion that "you can't start translating the Bible until a white missionary shows up," Stedman said.
Stedman said technology has become key in the move from "other tongue" to "mother tongue" translators. Digital texts can be shared more easily than print copies, smoothing the way for members of a faith community to collaborate on a translation, he said.
For instance, the fourth chapter of Mark tells the story of Jesus calming a storm that had engulfed a boat carrying him and his disciples.
Stedman remembers speaking with a pastor from Africa who was confused by the passage and asked whether it meant the vessel was in danger of getting stuck in a marsh. The new software would flag this section and explain that "swamped" in this context means flooded with water, Stedman said.
