What is this new translation?

Reading from new missal translation

A new translation of the Mass has been prepared for the English-speaking world. The current translation used in parishes in England and Wales was prepared in the late 1960s following the renewal of the liturgy after the Second Vatican Council.

We use a translation of the Latin Missal. The Latin Missal or Missale Romanum is the foundation document for translations into other languages. It means that across the world though the language and local customs may be different the form of the Mass and the content of the prayers is the same. The Missal is therefore a sign of the unity of the Church.
