Today, an A.A. presence can be found in approximately 180 nations worldwide, with membership estimated at over two million. There are more than 118,000 A.A. groups around the world and A.A.’s literature has been translated into languages as diverse as Afrikaans, Arabic, Hindi, Nepali, Persian, Swahili, and Vietnamese, among many others.
A.A. literature is translated into more than 100 languages and the Big Book is translated into 70 languages, with more translations currently in progress.
Literature in English, Spanish and French is posted in PDF form on this website. Our policy: We allow readers to print one copy only, for personal use.
If you live in the United States or Canada, a selection of translated books, booklets, pamphlets and other materials is available for purchase via our A.A.W.S. webstore.
We encourage you to order literature locally, via your local central offices and intergroups. We do this because sales of literature help fund Twelfth Step service around the world and because purchasing locally supports A.A.’s international and local service entities.
For items not available on our website or via our webstore, please contact the local international service structures via their websites.
If you live outside the United States and Canada, please contact the service office of the country or region associated with an item’s language.
