Does anyone know where I can obtain an audio Russian Book of Mormon?

It doesn't look like there is one yet. But keep checking at www.ldscatalog.com

It´s time to have a hebrew translation of The Book of Mormon.

There is a Hebrew translation of the Book of Mormon. However, it is out of print. You can occasionally find used copies for sale on auction web sites. The last time I saw one for sale, the asking price was $100.

The story goes that one of the conditions that the government of Israel set for granting permission to the church to build the BYU Jerusalem center was to stop printing copies of the Hebrew Book of Mormon. I don't know if that is the authoritative explanation. But having seen photos of the Hebrew Book of Mormon online, that explanation sounds plausible.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Do you know anything about the Nepali language (India)? Is a translation likely, even though most Indians speak English?

Anon at 10:40pm: I have no contact with the church's Curriculum or Translation departments, so I don't know anything about any forthcoming translations of any church material, Book of Mormon or otherwise.

You can find out what is currently available in Nepali, by ordering the "Language Material Listing" for Nepali, which is part # 93015-372. It is just a one page sheet. You can order this online at www.ldscatalog.com, or call the Salt Lake Dist Center at 1-801-240-3800. This listing on one sheet is free in small quanitities.

I have an OLD copy of the Nepali "Lanaguage Material Listing", and the only thing it shows in Nepali is "The Living Christ Testimony", a single page 8.5" x 11". It is item # 36299-372. It is free in small quantities.

Thanks for doing what you do. I appreciate the fact that you have gone to all this work to further the cause. I wish there was some way to help get the word out... Have you heard of the "More Good Foundation"? You should post a link to your blog.

I'm not sure what the presence of the church is like in central Africa, but does anyone know if copies of the Book of Mormon are available in either Kinyarwanda (an official language from Rwanda) or Burundian?

I don't know of a Book of Mormon translation in those languages, but there might be a Joseph Smith Testimony translation, or a "Gospel Fundamentals" translation.

Check the list of languages on this page:
http://indybooks.blogspot.com/2007/08/language-material-listings-now.html

Many languages have more than one name. So the language you're looking for might be listed as something else.

Good luck.

Has anything been done to translate the Book of Mormon into Karen (one of the major language groups in Burma [Myanmar]). Are there ANY materiaels available in this language?

 
At 10/19/2008 10:22:00 PM, Blogger Bookslinger said...

To attempt to find out what translations are in the works, you could call or write the Curriculum Department at church headquarters, 50 E. North Temple Street, SLC, Utah.

However, I don't know if they give out that information or not. I've never asked.

There is a translation of the Joseph Smith Testimony in Burmese, you can order it by calling the phone number listed at www.ldscatalog.com. It's not listed on the web site, so you have to call to place your order.

But you can see what is available in Burmese, and other languages, by going to www.ldscatalog.com, click on "Other Language Materials", then "List of Available Items by Language."

Do you know anything about the availability of a Burmese Book of Mormon, or a closely related one?
