The full texts of the new English Mass translation are now available online as pdf documents. They vary between 1Mb and 4Mb each.

What follows is normally referred to as the “Received Text”, the English translation of the Roman Missal approved on March 25, 2010 by the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments (CDW) and presented to Pope Benedict XVI on April 28, 2010.

This translation is described as “For the use of the Holy See and those Dioceses in which the Bishops have approved it by law”. I understand there may yet be alterations to the above texts before their implementation, although New Zealand has implemented some of these new texts. I also would understand that there will come a point when the the Bishops will not be able to do other than “approve it”. In other words, I do not think that some dioceses will be able to continue with the current translation.
