Language Material Listings now available for download.

The church's "Language Material Listings" are now available for download from If that link doesn't take you directly there, go to their main page, click on "Other Language Materials" then click on "List of Available Items by Language." There are 164 languages listed, including English Braille and Spanish Braille.

These items list all the materials that are available in a given language. The first three things available are usually the Joseph Smith Testimony pamphlet, Gospel Fundamentals (aka Gospel Principles Simplified), and the Book of Mormon.

For a list of which languages have a Book of Mormon translation, click here, or my page here. There are 106 languages, plus English Braille and Spanish Braille.

Here are the languages which have any church material available. The last 3 digits of the Catalog # are the 3 digit country code in the LDS cataloging system. Download these files here.

So what I'm suggesting, is that if you have a non-LDS friend who speaks one of those languages, download the listing, see whats available, buy a copy of something in that language, and offer it to your friend.

Aside from the Book of Mormon, you have to place orders for languages other than English/Spanish/French by phone. They don't have all the foreign language stuff available on the internet. To order by phone call the LDS Distribution Center at 801-240-3800. (Save the church a buck if you have free long distance.) Or toll-free at 800-537-5971.

I don't have any non-English-speaking friends, but I love the Russian stuff and use Church materials (especially the new vocabulary) in my practice work. I was the only one in my Russian class who knew how to say "church" or "faith." ^_^ Thanks for putting that link up!

(and thanks to the folks at Distribution for putting the listings online -- now I won't have to order a new one or call for the new numbers every year!)

I have a ton of non-english speaking friends (but then I am "in the mission field") I am seriously looking for a copy of Gospel Principles in Russian. We have an investigator, whose husband is a member.. they have just joined us in Pamplona Spain.

Could anyone send me some PDF or other downloadable file (or link) to alan dot whitcomb at gmail dot com

Considering when I was working at BYU's Cannon Center I had co-workers who were native speakers of Napali, Mongolian, Portuguese, Spanish and probably several other languages I find it hard to imagine anywhere where you would not deal with non-English speakers.

In my ward we have native speakers of Tagalog, Cambodian, Arabic, Chaldean, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and German. When I worked at Taco Bell we would regularly have customers speaking in Gujarati, Pungjabi and Hindi. There are plenty of Albanian speakers aroundwhere I live as well.

In my first area on my mission in Las Vegas we would have been helped a lot if the Book of Mormon had existed then in Amheric.
