unfoldingWord® Translation Words

This is the repository for the unfoldingWord® Translation Words (UTW) resource.


UTW is a basic Bible cidtionary that provides translators with concise definitions of concepts and translation suggestions for important words found in the Bible. This resource provides translators and checkers with general contextual information to help them make sound translation decisions.


If you want to download UTW to use, go here: https://www.unfoldingword.org/utw. UTW is also included in tS and tC.

Improving the tWs

Please use the issue queue to provide feedback or suggestions for improvement.

If you want to make your suggested changes then you may use the online editor to do so. See the protected branch workflow document for step by step instructions.


The tWs are organized into three sub directories under bible.

  • The subdirectory kt contains “key terms” which we consider to be of special importance in the Bible.
  • The subdirectory other contains terms which require explanation but are of less importance than the “key terms.”
  • The subdirectory names contains proper names of people and places in the Bible.
