The translation of the Bible into Nyanja is born from a realisation that the majority of the Nyanja speakers have challenges in appreciating the Chewa language that has changed and the modern speakers of the language find it very difficult to read the old Chewa Bible.

The goal of the Nyanja Translation project is to provide the speakers of Nyanja a Bible that will be easy to read by all the people from all walks of life. Additionally, the orthography which was used during the translation of the Bible has also undergone a revision. The intended audience include the modern speakers of the Language (both adult and young). The New Testament translation will be completed with the publishing and dedication by the end of 2021.
