    Languages of the Book of Mormon

    For twenty years, the Book of Mormon was printed only in English. During the next 127 years, thirty translations were made. That number more than doubled during the 1980s, with either all or part of the Book of Mormon being translated into seventy-nine new languages. By the end of 1991—two years later—the number had grown to ninety.
