I doubt it was the NASB translators, because they are Protestant:


The translators come from Presbyterian, Methodist, American Baptist, 
Disciples, Southern Baptist, Nazarene, General Association of Regular 
Baptist, Congregational, Independent Baptist, Free Methodist, and still 
other denominations. Some have international reputations.

HH: I don't think they would be controlled by American bishops, by which 
you presumably mean Catholic ones.  Perhaps you mean NAB. If you want to 
read about the NASB translators, you can see a list of them above or here:
