SIL International is a faith-based nonprofit organization committed to serving language communities worldwide as they build capacity for sustainable language development. SIL does this primarily through research, translation, training and materials development. SIL partners with host governments, NGOs (nongovernment organizations), universities, churches and the local people themselves to promote linguistic research, language development, literacy, multilingual education, translation and other educational and research projects of practical, social and moral value. SIL's linguistic investigation exceeds 2,590 languages spoken by over 1.7 billion people in nearly 100 countries. The organization makes its services available to all, without regard to religious belief, political ideology, gender, race or ethnolinguistic background.
