The mission of the Nida Institute is to accelerate the translation process with more and better-trained translators who work at local levels. Domestically, the Institute serves American Bible Society (ABS) by overseeing programs of scholarship, professional development, quality assurance, and translation. Institute staff also represent ABS to the media in matters of biblical scholarship. Internationally, the Institute operates as a center for translation studies, providing training and publishing services. Because the Foundation is recognized by the European Union as a center for higher education, its members can offer their clients the benefits of accredited academic programs.
