Church Releases Updates, Translations of Scriptures in 22 Languages + More to Come This Year


Last year was a banner year for the number of scriptures translated and released in new languages, and members can look forward to additional translations in 2019.

In 2018, between scriptures translated for the first time in a language, updates to existing scriptures, and new scripture products, 22 languages had access to new versions of scripture products for the first time, either digitally—online at and in the Gospel Library app—or in print.

New digital versions

Electronic versions of new and updated scriptures are now available online at and in the Gospel Library mobile app in Amharic, Afrikaans, Finnish, Chinese (Traditional Characters), Chinese (Simplified Characters), Serbian, Slovenian, Malay, Kekchi, Finnish, Malagasy, and Fante.
