The Seed Company

Summary:  The Seed Company began in 1993, by Wycliffe Bible Translators Inc. (Wycliffe USA), to accelerate Scripture translation and impact for people that are without God’s Word through Great Commission partnerships.  The Seed Company works with local translators and international partner organizations as well as financial and prayer partners in a concentrated effort to make God’s Word readily available for faster church planting, effective discipleship and greater community transformation. The Seed Company, manages national-led translation projects with clearly defined timeframes, outcomes, milestones and budgets. Financial and prayer partners for each project provide the necessary resources. Experienced linguists train and mentor local translators, while every scriptural translation is reviewed thoroughly for accuracy and clarity. In addition, emerging technology, such as solarpowered equipment, satellite uplinks, and cell phones, is accelerating the pace of Bible translation and making it possible even in the most remote regions of the world.  The Seed Company aims to transform lives in every language in this generation by God’s Word.
