Keeping Pace

In response to the Lord’s call to take the gospel to all the world, the Church has now made available scripture and other Church instructional materials in 48 additional languages.

Most of the items produced for English-speaking members of the Church have been available for some time in Spanish, Portuguese, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Fijian, Samoan, Tahitian, Tongan, Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, and Thai. But now greater growth of the Church worldwide has brought the need for items to be translated into even more languages, languages spoken in the Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, Spain, Africa, Central and South America, and Micronesia.

According to the Emerging Languages section of the Church’s Translation Department, the recently translated items now available are the complete Book of Mormon, Book of Mormon selections, the Gospel Principles manual, the pamphlet Joseph Smith’s Testimony, the Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price, Duties and Blessings of the Priesthood, Part A (priesthood A manual), The Latter-day Saint Woman, Part A (women’s manual), Walk in His Ways, Part A (children’s A manual), and Hymns and Children’s Songs.

Members can obtain these items by contacting the Salt Lake City Distribution Center, 1999 West 1700 South, Salt Lake City, Utah 84104, U.S.A. (telephone 801–531–2504) or local distribution centers. All requests should list the complete title of each item, its stock number (in parentheses in the accompanying chart), and the language(s) needed. Many items are not yet available in all of the languages listed. Translation of scriptures and instructional materials is still continuing.
