Through your support, God has enabled us to develop five powerful tools to aid national translators in translating and disseminating the Scriptures:
- Mobilized Assistance Supporting Translation (MAST): This proven method is accelerating Bible translation efforts faster than ever before. In 2016, 315 new Bible translations were started as a result of 135 MAST workshops held for national translators worldwide.
- Bible Translation Acceleration Kit (BTAK): Can include a laptop computer, power supply, satellite communication terminal, solar panel, and battery enabling translators to work and collaborate anywhere in the world. With your help 544 BTAKs have been deployed to date.
- Print On Demand (POD): These cost-effective units quickly print God’s translated Word for distribution to those who are without it. Your support has enabled 43 PODs to be deployed in 20 countries.
n Bible Translation Recording Kit (BTRK): These systems are crucial to translating God’s Word into languages that are only spoken. BTRKs are the best way for these oral cultures to hear God’s truth.
- Tablets for National Translators (TNTs): Loaded in multiple languages, TNTs help translators work together faster and more securely, comparing work instantly online. Each tablet provides access to a huge library of reference materials fostering the translator’s own spiritual growth.
