Paratext was created so speakers of every language can have an clear, accurate, and natural translation of the Bible in their language.
Paratext gives a translation team the ability to draft and edit a translation of the Bible in any language, using any writing system.
Users can view the multiple Bible translations and resources, original language texts, AND enchanced resources, all next to their active translation editing window. This helps them to accurately translate the meaning of the original texts.
Well beyond a conventional word processing application, Paratext provides special features for checking the accuracy, quality, and consistency of the translated text.
User support is provided through our team of support experts, as well as a network of Paratext supporters from around the world.
Paratext is developed and funded in partnership with multiple organizations who are dedicated to seeing God’s Word available to every tribe, people, tongue, and nation (Revelation 7:9).
A world-wide network of Bible Societies operating in over 240 countries and territories to make sure that everyone who wants to can access and engage with the Bible.
