List of languages by year of first Bible translation
The Bible has been translated into many languages. The Jewish Tanakh (similar to the Protestant Old Testament) was originally written in Hebrew, with the exception of some passages of Daniel, Ezra, and Jeremiah which are in Aramaic. The New Testament is widely agreed to have originally been written in Greek, although some scholars hypothesize that certain books (whether completely or partially) may have been written in Aramaic before being translated for widespread dissemination.

I've learned that the first translation was in Latin 'Biblia Sacra Valgata' and that only about 513 out of over 7,000 languages in the world have complete Bibles in their native tongue.
