Easy Access on Mobile Devices in Asia
“This is what we’ve been looking for!” exclaimed a local pastor after seeing the Selaru Bible app. The translation team has been making portions of God’s Word available through the app for mobile devices.
One of the team members said, “I am thankful l now have a cellphone that I can use wherever I go to share the Word.” He carries with him the Selaru Bible app, recordings of Jonah and James, a test version of the “JESUS” film and more.
Thai Sign Language Impacts Other Sign Languages
“Many Deaf who have been exposed to community testing [of translated portions] are excited to have the Scriptures,” said a project adviser for Thai Sign Language. “People are eager for more.”
These Scripture stories impact the Deaf who use Thai Sign Language, and Bible translators are hopeful that this translation may even meet the needs of all three sign languages in the country. The team will assess how well two other sign language communities in Thailand understand them. Depending on their findings, these stories could potentially be used as a source for adaptation into those languages.
