“We are excited about what this will do for members across the world and hope it will improve the lives and testimonies of all who visit.” —Matt Anderson, producer of the LDS Media Library

With more than 15,000,000 members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints living all over the world and speaking countless languages, the Church continually works to improve and update the content needed for all nations to teach the Gospel in “their own nation and tongue” (Alma 29:8).

After almost two years of work, the video and audio sections of the LDS Media Library are now available on LDS.org in ten languages besides English, including:

•                American Sign Language

•                Chinese

•                French

•                German

•                Italian

•                Japanese

•                Korean

•                Portuguese

•                Russian

•                Spanish

“In these languages we have approximately 100 videos available for streaming and download, and we will continue to post content each month,” said Matt Anderson, producer of the LDS Media Library.

If you are looking for a video in a specific language, you can change the language of the page by clicking on the language bar in the top right under the LDS.org toolbar and selecting the language you are looking for.

“We are excited about what this will do for members across the world, and hope it will improve the lives and testimonies of all who visit,” said Brother Anderson.

Now even more members of the Church can watch and understand Church videos in their own language.

Missionary work online will also be improved, as you can now share these videos with friends and family who speak these languages.

According to Marianne Jennings, product manager of the LDS Media Library, the images section is also being translated and will soon be available in these same languages.

“More content will be added to each of these pages as time goes on and we will soon begin working on translating the Media Library into the remaining Curriculum languages,” stated Sister Jennings.
