My reading is that it is 3/4 of the 8000 dialects/languages are without any of what the Xtians call holy writings. Let us remember that many cultures have their own holy writings and call into mind you Xtians what the first several verses of Chapter two and the first five or so verse of Chapter 14 of Romans says.
PS: If I am out of line with this, please let me know off-line. I have this subscription not for faith reasons, but for learning about Hebrew, where there is truly some difference.

Sadly this is far from true. According to

There may be some languages with translations of the Hebrew Bible but
not of the New Testament, but the implication here is that there is no
translation of the Hebrew Bible into well over 90% of the world's languages.
