Online Bible Translations for Burmese

I don’t know if I have ever posted about the Myanmar Bible Society.  Here is some information.  A lot of the Burmese refugees had to learn the national language called Burmese so they are bi-lingual.  Also the Bible society has many Chin translations, Kachin, Karen and other translations.

I have extensively used the Myanmar online Bible website to get scripture in front of the Burmese.

Click on the online Bible then click on the Parallel Bibles option.  Then you will see English and Burmese text side by side.  With a little practice you can navigate around the Bible  You need to try Judson Burmese and S’gaw Karen translations to see if your family can read either one.  You can copy and paste the Bible text to a word document.   You will need to download the PadaukOT font to your computer, install it and you will be able to see the Burmese characters on your screen and print them.  If you can’t figure out how to do this, ask a young person, they are always adding fonts to their computers.

Here is the Bible Society website
