The New World Translation in Tamil script was released in September 2016. It has been a great blessing to the Tamil-speaking field worldwide. But some Tamil speakers have difficulty reading Tamil script and prefer the Roman script.
Regarding her personal study of the Bible, one translator explains: “I struggled to read the Tamil script and had to rely on the English-language translation. This new version will help me tremendously.”
We are certain that this Bible translation will help many brothers and sisters to read God’s Word “in an undertone” and find joy and success in their life and ministry.—Joshua 1:8.
