Germans Need a Good Bible Translation. How Can We Solve This Problem?

We recently wrapped up our missions conference, and one of the missionary couples we had the privilege of hosting is ministering in Germany. To my complete surprise, they said that they are in need of a good German bible translation. They either have to lean on the mainstream and quite liberal translation or turn to something that is essentially a paraphrase.

I asked them how this could be. How could a country like Germany not have a good bible translation (like the NASB or ESV) in their native tongue?

The couple didn't know the answer, but assured me that it is a problem. Many Germans know English, to some degree, so they can pick up our editions, but as many of you know, it is critical to the have the Scriptures in your heart language.

Is anyone else aware of this problem? And what in the world can we do to fix this?
