Wycliffe Bible Translators Australia

Also known as “Wycliffe Australia”, Wycliffe Bible Translators Australia is a large-scale charity established in 1965. Their main activity is registered as religious activities primarily serving people from a culturally and linguistically diverse background.

In 2018 more language communities have had some Scriptures published in their language through the direct involvement of Wycliffe Australia members. Australian translation consultants, trainers and program managers have made valuable contributions to the success of over 100 local translation teams globally. These local translations teams are often working in multi-language clusters with strong training components. Some Scripture publications were digitally released for phone applications, in audio, and downloadable from the internet. More people were recruited and trained to provide training and logistical support to partner organisations in Australia and other countries. The vision and goals of the organisation were promoted among the Australian Christian community.
