Philippine Bible Society

New Translation Initiatives

To serve specialized segment of the Filipino society, PBS also launched audience-specific translation projects. The Greek-Tagalog Interlinear New Testament Project was launched to help in enhancing Filipino biblical scholarship. On the other hand, the Pinoy Version, was undertaken as PBS’s offering for the Filipino youth whose language preference for a Bible version has become a challenge— the Pinoy Version would certainly bring them closer to God as they would realize that God can also speak their language. For those who prefer a more literary- liturgical translation, the Filipino Standard Version is PBS’s response.
