From Mexico to Myanmar, 48 language groups – a total of 11 million people – received first Scripture translations, meaning that they were not previously available in those languages. New or revised translations were completed in another 43 languages used by 783 million people. These provide Scripture access to language communities whose needs are no longer met by previous translations.
