[dropcap]L[/dropcap]atter-day Saint-ism (I guess we’re calling it that?) is not what one would call huge in Slovenia, even by the standards of a country of only two million people. There are three branches in the stunning alpine country, with just over 400 members overall, or a scant two hundredths of a percent of the population.

Nevertheless, translation is no respecter of persons, and a letter from the First Presidency in December 2018 revealed that a triple combination — the single-bound volume of scripture that contains the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price — is now available digitally with printed versions available on May 31, 2019.

In addition, the First Presidency announced an updated version of the Book of Mormon in Slovenian, which includes footnotes and the Guide to the Scriptures.

This is part of a larger effort announced in 2017 to undertake translation projects in numerous languages.

As of 2018, there are full translations of the Book of Mormon available in 96 languages. As of April 2018, the triple combination was available in 55 languages. With the addition of Slovenian, that means out of the full translations of the Book of Mormon, approximately 58 percent of them are available in full triple combination format.

The also Church produces the “quad” — the triple combination plus a Church-produced version of the Bible — in only 3 languages: English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
