EC Group Featured on the Cover of Christian Computing for their Business Helping Speed Bible Translation

Read the Cover Story at the Christian Computing Website - In a remote jungle village, a bearded Wycliffe missionary sits close to a campfire. As mosquitoes buzz around, he listens closely to a tribal elder speak in an undocumented language, yearning to understand the dialect in order to bring them the Good News in their own tongue. 

Thirty years later a Bible is produced - the missionary's effort of a lifetime. 

Today another "missionary" sits in a cubical writing software that will forever change the process of how Bible translation is accomplished. These advanced and innovative programs address the full spectrum of the translation process from creating dictionaries through to final publication. Technology is the single most powerful factor in reaching the 350 million people who do not have God's Word in their own language. It increases the efficiency of the 6,000 Wycliffe team members addressing translation in over 90 countries.

Wycliffe's "IT Missionaries"
Wycliffe generously shares its technology and translations with other ministries. As a result, Wycliffe's work is reaching hundreds of millions of people through products like the Jesus Film, audio bibles, radio broadcasts, television programs, and the new and exciting http://Bible.is project from Faith Comes by Hearing. A small elite team of dedicated IT professionals is reshaping how the Gospel is brought to the world.

"Before working with Wycliffe, I had no idea such 'IT Missionaries' existed," remarks Tom Sudyk, CEO and Chairman for EC Group International (www.ecgroup-intl.com). "I had only heard the 'missionary' stories of those joining organizations to go overseas and working on the front lines."
