New Languages and how they are developed

We aim to start working on the Braille transcription of any new language that is requested but funding first needs to be in place.

In order to begin a new language we need to know what the uptake is likely to be and if the text files and the Braille code for the language in question are obtainable. We also need to have access to one or two fluent Braille proof readers. 

We do not initially seek to transcribe the whole Bible in any new language, sometimes we initially only transcribe certain books of the Bible depending on the request that has been made.
