Why does G.S.O./A.A.W.S. only produce literature in English, Spanish and French?

The General Service Office in New York primarily serves and supports the Fellowship in the United States and Canada, where English, Spanish and French are the primary languages spoken/read. If you live outside the United States and Canada, please contact the service office of the country or region associated with your country or region.

We have literature available in our online store in over 100 languages, but we encourage you to order literature locally. Sales of literature help fund Twelfth Step service around the world, and 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.
