Joseph Smith’s translation of the Book of Mormon into English was arguably one of the most miraculous occurrences of this dispensation. But translations of the Book of Mormon into other languages have also been miraculous, in their own small way. The translation of the Book of Mormon into Ukrainian is one such small miracle in Church history.
In 1991, Zoya Gulko, a Ukranian of Jewish descent, agreed to translate the Book of Mormon into English. Translating the Book of Mormon into another language usually takes years to complete, but Zoya was able to do it in nineteen months, working part-time, so she could keep her full-time job as a schoolteacher.
