Being the host community for the North West regional head office of the Cameroon Association of Bible Translation and Literacy (CABTAL) for some years, Nkwen has been slow to engage CABTAL for its language development. That sluggishness is now a thing of the past as today (26 June 2020) marked the signing of a linguistic development partnership between CABTAL and the Nkwen Community represented by the Nkwen Language Committee. The partnership is aimed at developing the Nkwen Language and the Translation of the New Testament in the Nkwen Language. Pastor Muforza Bonaventure and Pastor Tanjang Rudolf who are all natives of Nkwen are part of the project. Other CBC Pastors in Nkwen who are not natives are also involved, notable the Rev. Apongnde Richard, the present Nkwen Association Pastor.
