Update: Translations of the Book of Mormon

For the first 20 years after its publication in 1830, the Book of Mormon was printed only in English. During the next 127 years, 31 translations were made. That number has more than doubled in the past 11 years, with either all or part of the Book of Mormon being translated into 64 new languages. The book, or selections from it, are currently available in 79 languages.
