Wycliffe Bible Translators New Zealand offers initial language training for those interested in learning languages to work and minister overseas. This is the first step for those who would like to serve overseas with Wycliffe. Our local training prepares people for further study overseas where they can specialise in Linguistics, Translation or Literacy streams.
Language Development Training
Training for preparation for work in literacy, survey and translation is offered through several partnering schools in other countries. Accredited programs are available at the certificate, undergraduate and graduate levels, through both public universities and private schools. In many cases, credits can be transferred to other educational institutions. Training in these disciplines is available in the US in California, Illinois, North Dakota, Oregon and Texas. Training is also offered in Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany and Korea.
From time to time Wycliffe NZ offers short workshops in cooperation with other agencies to resource the church in various areas.
