Simple Truths now in 30 languages
Clear and Simple Media is celebrating a milestone. With the completion of the Farsi translation later this month (January 2017), the “little book” Simple Truths will be available in 30 languages.
The project began just over ten years ago as an attempt to assist the growing church in Vietnam. Once the book was completed, translated, and distributed in Vietnamese and three of the languages of the indiginous people groups in Vietnam, we thought the project was finished. Over the next several years, other mission and church networks began to “discover” the book and request translations. With the completion of the Farsi translation (targetting Iranian refugees in Turkey), Simple Truths will now be available in 30 languages. The book is already in distribution and use in some form in more than 40 countries. Farsi holds “official language” status in Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan and is spoken by more than 110 million people worldwide.
Languages in which Simple Truths is now available: English, Haitian Creole, Lungandan, Mooré, Jula (Dioula), French, Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Hré, Bahnar, Steing, Croatian, Farsi, Oromo, Amheric, H’mong, Tagalog, Hindi, Arabic, Poqomchi, Burmese, Mizo Chin, Malay Bahasa, Dagara, Uyghur, and Maithili.
