Approximately 4.8 billion people now have access to scriptures their mother tongue. However, more than 500 million people do not have access to any scriptures in their first language. About 350 million people speaking 2040 languages are in need of scripture in their language because they are not sufficiently bi-lingual to have access to it in any other language. Most of the remaining Bible translation needs are in Africa with significant needs also in Asia and the Pacific.
