On Going Translation Project:
BSI guides all translators working under its auspices to ensure that all the words, and all the propositional relationships among the words in the original text are meaningfully translated in ways the receptor languages allow and which are natural to them. BSI has accomplished completing Bibles in 72 languages and New Testament in additional 80 languages. At present, it handles, 69 live projects. The principal languages of India received minimum of two versions in each language. According to the Government of India’s data, there are 1652 languages/dialects spoken in India. However, several of these language speakers are bi-lingual. According to our survey, if translation is carried out in at least 300 of these languages we are confident we can reach the entire population.
