The Translation Trust was set up in 1984 to facilitate the translation and distribution of the Scriptures in Turkey. Following radical changes in the Turkish language over the previous decades, the aim of the trust was to support an initiative by workers in Turkey to produce a new translation of the New Testament. In the absence of any publisher who would publish the New Testament, the trust then established a Christian publishing house (New Life Publications) in Istanbul to handle production and distribution. The Translation Trust and New Life Publications continue to co-operate very closely.
In 1988 The Translation Trust and its partner New Life Publications joined forces with the Bible Society to work on the Old Testament and revise the New Testament. This culminated in the modern Turkish Bible which was launched in 2001.
