English videos are a good start, yet it has become increasingly clear that the English version can no longer be the finish line. Global statistics show that over 40% of our video views come from locations outside of the United States. While subtitles can seem an easy solution, our scripts are written to be seen and heard. Localizing our videos brings better understanding. YouVersion’s commitment to showcasing all of our localized videos within their Bible app, available in over 54 languages, will offer the ability for millions to watch and listen in their native languages.
You can give a gift to a specific translation effort, or any general donation will be evenly distributed to all unfunded languages. This is an ambitious goal, but one we believe we can reach with your help!

The book of Psalms is the largest collection of poetry in the Bible.
