Languages by the Numbers

Some of these numbers are what really got me thinking about how to get involved with Wycliffe, so take a look at them yourself. How can you join Team OneVerse?

6,912 — Languages spoken in the world today
2,251 — Languages without any of the Bible, but with possible need for a translation to begin
193,000,000 — People who speak the 2,251 languages without a translation
1,953 — Translation programs currently in progress for languages without adequate Scripture
1,168 — Language communities which have access to the New Testament in their heart language
438 — Language communities which have access to the entire Bible in the language they understand best
6,500,000,000 — World population
1,000,000,000 — Non-literate adults, 2/3 are women
