I got the piece below at


You might want to follow the last link, as they have eBooks in ~100 languages,
and many in Hawaiian.

I'm forwarding this to their Executive Director, who will probably reply
in a week when he returns from Japan and Korea.

Dear Yuri,

The Bible gateway has a fair number of different language Bibles.



Most Bible translations that appear on the site appear courtesy of the
publishers and copyright holders.

Tentmaker also has many translations


Some Bibles in Oceanic languages are available by searching

Others are accessible on the Web, or example






Good luck in your search.

It would be interesting if you were to share your complete
list of translations.

Best regards,
