Human Language Technology Specialist

Human Language Technology (HLT) is a form of artificial intelligence that uses computers to translate one language into another so that people can understand one another and access information they do not currently have in their language.


  •   Preserving the language, culture, and knowledge of minority people groups
  •   A desire to see minority language groups have a voice on the world stage and to have access to information
  •   A heart for marginalized people


  •   Training in applied linguistics and/or computational linguistics
  •   Familiarity with and an ability to learn computer software
  •   An analytical mind able to work through large amounts of data
  •   Strong language learning skills and communication ability

Innovations in Human Language Technology (HLT) offer significant potential for helping under-resourced language communities find their voice.  Whether text-to-text, text-to-speech, speech-to-text, or speech-to-speech, machine translation can help overlooked communities finally be understood in the world.  HLT will bring critical educational resources to communities in a way they can understand, and offer new capabilities to the communities among whom we work.

Most of our teammates raise support on behalf of Pioneer Bible Translators for their ministry roles. Support raising is not about money — it’s about prayerfully inviting people everywhere to participate in what God is doing to fulfill His mission.

We provide training to help you:

  • Gain confidence in communicating the Biblical foundation for living on support, asking others to invest, and understanding “The God Ask.”
  • Learn best practices and gain confidence in sharing your presentation.
  • Rehearse with your peers and make real calls for appointments.
  • Experience the value of meeting face to face with people and asking for support.
  • Discover how to cultivate lasting relationships with your supporters.

We will work with you to develop a budget based on your ministry role, where you’re going, and your family’s personal needs. Our goal is for you to be adequately funded to maximize the fruitfulness of your ministry and your family.
