The Wycliffe Ministry of

Hasso Pape

Hasso earned his Bachelor of Science in computer science from the University of Cincinnati and is putting his skills to work for God's Kingdom as a language software developer with SIL in Dallas, Texas.

Hasso works on Scripture Forge, a web app for translating the Bible and checking translations. Because it’s online, language community members can participate in checking from anywhere in the world. Also, during translation, Scripture Forge will recognize phrases that users have already translated and ask if they want to translate them the same way again. This is estimated to save translation teams half of their usual typing. A large part of the revision process is ensuring parallel translation of similar phrases, so doing this automatically from the beginning will also save a lot of rework. Scripture Forge works together with Paratext, the world’s premier Bible translation software.

Hasso is honored to serve God on a team that creates tools to foster collaboration and accuracy in Bible translation.

Wycliffe Ministry Budget

Wycliffe establishes a Ministry Budget for its missionaries to reflect recurring expenses related to family factors and their geographic location of service. Giving to Wycliffe directly impacts missionaries’ ability to begin and remain in their assignment.

This budget covers ministry-related expenses, insurance and retirement, social security and taxes, and Wycliffe administrative costs. The remainder is what the missionaries receive as “take-home pay” for their daily living expenses.
