In the late 1300s, John Wycliffe became the first person to translate the Bible into English. Before that, English speakers had to learn Latin if they wanted to read the Bible. Wycliffe believed strongly that the Bible should be available to every person.
In 1942, when William Cameron Townsend founded Wycliffe Bible Translators, he chose to name the new missions organization after John Wycliffe because of their common passion: that every person should have a Bible in their heart language.
