The New Spanish Translation of the Bible was undertaken immediately upon the completion of the Reina-Valera revision in 1960 and publication is not expected for several years. The new translation will not displace the Reina-Valera version but aims to provide the Evangelical community in Latin America with a text as accurate and persuasive as consecrated scholarship can provide. The work is going forward in Mexico under the joint sponsorship of the American Bible Society and The British and Foreign Bible Society.

For the Republic of Haiti, the Bible Societies have produced a New Testament and Psalms in Creole, the language spoken there. ... The Societies also provide Scriptures in various sophisticated French versions. It is expected that the "Popular French" New Testament will soon be available and will provide a much more intelligible French text for the Haitian to read.
