A Complete Bible for Deaf People

Watch quick clips of sixty-six books in American Sign Language

Historic Accomplishment

The American Sign Language Version (ALSV) was primarily translated by Deaf people, for Deaf people and featured 53 different translators. With the rapidly changing technology Deaf Missions reinvented not only process, but the outcome numerous times over the last 38 years paving the way for other translation work in other sign languages. The ASLV will be used as a resource text for other Bible translations – more than 400 different sign languages exist around the world.

The ASLV is the completion of a thirty-eight-year translation project. Deaf Missions’ team draws from the Christian religious text, the Bible, from its origin languages of Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek into American Sign Language (ASL) using video. ASL users can access the full text using Deaf Missions’ website or app.
