More About United Bible Societies
The United Bible Societies is made up of 146 national Bible Societies operating in over 200 countries and territories. Together, they are the biggest translator, publisher and distributor of the Bible in the world. They are also active in areas such as literacy training, HIV and AIDS prevention and disaster relief. Bible Societies work with all Christian Churches and many international non-governmental organizations.
Bible Societies are committed to finding new and imaginative ways to draw people into the Bible. Each is unique – some are large organizations delivering sophisticated Bible advocacy campaigns, others are small offices distributing Scriptures to people living below the poverty line.
Translating the Bible remains at the heart of what we do. There are nearly 500 complete Bible translations (almost 30 per cent of which include the Deuterocanon) and each year more are added. Currently, there are Scriptures available in over 2,550 of the world’s estimated 7,100 languages. Our translation policy ensures we have translation guidelines that are acceptable to the Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox Churches. Bible Societies are dedicated to faithfully delivering new translations to Christians anywhere who have never had a Bible in their own language.
The first headquarters were London and in Geneva. The group is now based out of Delaware in the United States. The current General Secretary of The United Bible Societies is Michael Perreau.
